cochise pro 130 v cochise pro light???

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

Has anyone skied both? What do you think? I really want one boot for touring and resort skiing. I tried out/have the titan and it is fine in the BC but not to hot in the resort. I think part of the problem with the Titan is the cuff height for me. I am pretty tall and very skinny, especially in the calf area. Any thoughts are appreciated.

Not sure what you didn't like about the Titan cuff (too low?).  The Cochise PL has an even shorter cuff than the Titan.  The Pro 130 will certainly be a better one boot for everything.  Especially with the sole swaps possible.

I have a pair of Cochise Pro 130 on order. I tried on the regular Cochise (120?) not sure if this is the pro light and it was too soft flexing for me. The Pro 130 felt just right.

The Pro Light is actually a little softer flex (120 instead of 130) and wider last than the Pro 130. 

The question is, which one will fit your foot and your needs.  

 

Here's a link to Storm Day Sales' blog about the boot

My Titan cuff is to low/short for my long skinny calves, so it sounds like the pro light is out. Both of the reviews that have been posted sound very positive. If the boot is a 130 comparable to a dobberman or close, I will love it. As far as a fit and needs?? I need a burly boot and boot fit has never really been much of an issue with any boot, just takes a bit of time to tweek'm accordingly. I would hook someone up on some titans if interested...

Thanks for the info.

I tried on both at a shop. The light was softer, but not by much. It's always hard to tell when trying on boots at room temperature. Regarding fit, to me they both felt like they fit the same way. But I have pretty "normal" feet.

 

In the end I bought the 130 pro since I didn't see it worth the extra money to save a little weight.
