"Model Year"

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

In the market for new boots.  Followed recommendations here and fit a bunch last SAT.  Down to three models:  Technica Mega + 10, Nordica Hot Rod 8.5 & Rossignol Synergy Sensor 90s.  All felt pretty good on the test fits.

 

Intermediate to advanced, 25% off trail runs, 230 LBS, 6'4".  SO, looking for a litte stiffer than normal.

 

3 questions:

 

A)  Any one of the above stick out better or worse?? 

 

B)  Any I'm missing in this range??

 

C (Most important)  Other than changes in boot specs from year to year, is there a reason to go with a 2012 vs a 2011 model of the same boot??

 

 

Thanks

similar

sure:  just about every company makes a boot similar to this.

not really,  as long as the boots fit you,  that is key above everything else

looking at the stats you gave 230lb all of the boots you list are a bit of the soft side at around 90-100 flex

One additional question:  Does a 90 flex Nordica match a 90 flex Lange, or does it vary by boot manufacturer??
