Time to retire my early 90's Raichle Flexon Equipes. The soft flex of the Flexons really hinders me in the moguls, and they are just wearing out. I really need a stiffer boot.
I am an advanced skier, I like skiing powder/off-Piste, moguls/steeps, groomers, in that order (no problem going all day w/o hitting the groomers). I am, 45 yrs old, 5'10", 165 lbs (working on getting down to 155-160).
Looking at these 2 "boot flex" charts, I would say 90-100, would be about right. I am not as strong in the legs as I would like to be, so I think 110+ might be pushing it.
I am basically asking for advice on flex, and recommendation on good boots. I am looking at spending $500-$550 max.
I stopped in at the local Ski shop today for a sec and happened to notice a pair of these http://www.rei.com/product/839410/dalbello-viper-10-ski-boots-mens-20122013 The description on that page say 100 flex is "medium" and for intermediate skiers, a bit different description than the 2 other charts.
Anyway, what do you guys think?
