I haven't had a Lange boot in a long time and can't even remember what model it was. redface.gif

 

But.........I tried some Lange Boots on while at SIA and was impressed with the fit of the Exclusive RX100 LV model that I tried on.

I have a boot fitting shop. My waiting room like an old sports museum. I have old golf putter, roller skates, tennis racquet's, shoes, skis, snowboards and more.

I went through several pair of the early XL's and have the Lange Bang to prove it!

I skied the XLS from 81 through 87, worked really well for me. Still have them. I modified them with the XLR's cuff-cant hardware and pulled the rear anchor rivets and did a tiny bit of dremeling of the leading lower edge of the upper cuff to soften them slightly in forward flex. I haven't tried them on since 87 though. They were my best fitting boot up until my current ones which are Rossi B2 from 2004.

I ski Lange World Cup 150 (plug).  Think it is one of the best boots I have ever skied.  Tough entry/exit but that is the price of admission.

Out of those, the XLR.

XL1000 but the yellow Tii's have a soft spot in my heart.

I've skied mostly Langes since the 1970s, and today's RXs are far better than all the others I've had in both fit and performance.

XLR by far, until they started leaking
