I'm just starting to think about getting a new pair of ski boots -- studying reviews, reading discussions on epic, talking to guys at ski stores, etc.
My current boots, tecnica diablo sparks, are 4 years old. They're in good shape, but when I got them four years ago I was still mostly cruising down green and blue groomers. So, any thoughts on:
- Would I noticeably up my game by upping my boots? My kids and I are now mostly ski blacks, trees, bumps and some side country (my son tells me we're going to do more of that).
- Does the flex number on the boot matter that much -- or is that more important for cambered skis on piste? My sparks have a flex of 80.
Thanks. Let me know if you need any more info. To you boot experts out there, sorry if these are dumb questions. As I said, I'm just starting to read up on boots.
