I've been dabbling with different boot flexes the past two seasons, and it looks like I'm doing it again.
Two years back I dumped my rather old Xscream boots from the early millennium, I believe they were 130s.
I tried a 90 flex in a Lange for one trip to UT, then quickly jumped on a pair of Lange Blaster Pros in a 100 flex.
Seems that I can crank them down sooo much that the metal in the heel attacks my heel and achilles. Two trips doing that
has led me to today's score.
I found on GearTrade a pair of Lange RS 110 Wides for the stupidly low price of $137.50 + $25 for shipping, aka Backcountry.
Skied on one day and sent back according to them. So I am now the lucky owner of Lange racing blue boots, and a flex I can live with
The whole experiment with boot flex is due to a desire to see if my poor patellas would like less jarring. So far all I've discovered is
that my 200 lb., 6'2" frame and old-pro skills will squash any soft shell and performance is reduced bashing them around.
Here in North Cuba I don't have many boots to try on, so when I find a Lange online I know the fit will be what I have come to expect
in their 28.5.
Anyone have a review of these for me? Thoughts?
Can't wait to have my dogs slip into them.
I have the Blaster Pros on CL for $175 if you are here in SoFLA (North Cuba).
