How different is the Hell and Back Pro from the Exp?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I went to a great boot fitter today. Tried on the Fischer Ranger 12, Lange RS and the Nordica Firearrow F3. Out of the 3 the Nordica was by far the best fit for me. However the store didn't have any of the Hell and Back models in stock so the owner is trying to track down a pair in my size. Nordica did not have any HB Pro's left so he is going to have to find one at another store to get it for me. If he can't track it down but can get the Exp how much different is the stiffness? He watched the way I flexed the boot and thought I'd be way better off with the Pro but my thought is if he can't get the Pro but can get the Exp I should be fine. I looked at the Nordica website and the stiffness on the Pro is rated at 120 and the Exp is rated at 115. To me seems like there isn't that much difference. Any of guys have experience with trying both the Pro and Exp? If so what was your verdict?

Thanks,

Chuck

I find this a bit confusing.  You tried on the Fire Arrow but you want to buy the Hell and Back, correct?  Did the fitter say the last id identical between the two boots?  To answer your question though, I doubt you or most anyone else for that matter, would be able to tell the difference between a 120 and 115 flex.

Yes the Firearrow and Hell and Back lasts come from the same mold.
