Been swamped with little kids, family and work this year and so, unfortunately, have not been able to spend a ton of time on Epic. Was out out at Park City a week ago and headed back in a few weeks. I got the chance to use my Full Tilt's for the first time.
This was my first foray into a 3 piece boot and the Intuition liners. I've generally been a 4 buckle, Lange guy which has worked well for my narrow feet and skinny ankles. My feet are almost always cold and have had to use heaters in the past to keep my toes from going numb on cold days. I'm about a level 8 skier...fairly strong...ski POW and off-piste exclusively when it's available and bumps when it's not. 6 foot 3, 185 lbs.
My general impressions:
A couple things jumped out at me immediately...first...the buttery flex of the boot. These boots have the 8 flex tounge in them and it was perfect for me. When I needed to really drive the front of the boot, the flex felt even and perfect. It's hard for me to articulate exactly how it was different from my other boots, but more "even" is the best way I can describe it...it also felt more effortless...yet the boots were plenty stiff. I also noticed how much warmer my feet were. It was probably in the mid 20's which, in the past, has been plenty cold enough to get my toes numb. My feet were comfortable the whole time and that was a refreshing change.
Some have said that these boots would take some getting used to, but I felt comfortable immediately. I did not notice any tradeoff in lateral quickness as compared to the more traditional Lange race boot. I skied a lot of bumps the first couple days and then got a POW day on my last day and there were phenomenal across the board. I'm a fan and have no plans to go back to my old boots.
That's all I've got for now. Let me know if you have any questions.
