I have a habit of gear finding it's way to me. My wife refers to is as the "large boxes arrive on our doorstep issue" Sometimes I get paid in gear. Sometimes I swap /barter for gear & sometimes I just end up w/ stuff that falls off trucks somewhere.
While this source of these is not going to be disclosed, I ended up w/ a pair of the Scarpa TX Comps. Now I know this is not Telemarktips.com, yet hear me out.
This boot is pebax, way softer wrapping & better fitting. Has is hot foamy liner & you can but another when this one dies w/o needing to bust into the factory. There is a vibram sole & booster strap. There is no duckbill on these nor the crappy ski / walk mechanism on so many AT boots. You can tele via the NTN system (& btw, you can swap your NTN binding b/w skis w/ a $50 kit), you can AT w/ em, & they will fit a Duke!!!!
You can drive to the mtn, go grocery shopping in them & don crampons for climbing!
Plus, they look to be an awesome ski boot....thoughts?
I'm putting this up bc I am either going to loose all my other boots or face plant w/ these. '12 will see.
