Pros: Comfortable with a stiff flex (130) if needed
I added custom insoles (zapps) and boots fit like a glove. I leave the flex at 120 and the boot performs fantastic. Unless I run gates, I see no reason needing the 130 flex option. I love the micro adjustments available from the buckles which helps late day as the boot packs out. Allows me to keep locked in without creating the vice grip which leads to that throbbing ache. No pressure points to speak of. To me it's a perfect blend of performance and comfort. Finding a pair of 2009's on e-bay for $360.00 was icing on the cake.
