Looking at the Cochise line of boots need alittle help?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Was at my local ski shop today buying my son a new ski setup.  So I decided to put on a new boot and tried on the Cochise 90.  My current boots are the Nordica Speedmachine 10 from 2006.  The flex on that boot is 100-110.  I loved this boot for many years but it is packed out and need a new boot.  I slipped on the Cochise 90 and thought it felt fantastic.  I want to go with the Cochise line because when I am out west I do a fair amount of hiking and even when I am in Michigan getting from the lot to the hill I can see where the hybrid boot will be much added comfort.  I am an expert skiier and enjoy steeps, chutes, bumps and trees.  I spend most of my time on the steeps.  I am 44 and am 5'6" and weigh 170 lbs.  My main question is unfortunately my local shop only stocks the 90 and 100 so I can't try out the 110 or 120.  If I dig the 100 should I just get it or will I be missing out by not maybe going 110-120?  I like my boots stiff but not ultra stiff.  I truly wish I could try all 4 flex's out but not sure that is going to be possible.  Any help would be appreciated.

 

Thanks,

 

Chuck

all the 90-120 cochise fit the same,  diff is the buckles/power strap, weight on 110, and the flex.   You can make any of them softer, but I would suggest the 110.

 

lighter,  warmer liner, stiff enought flex.
