Tecnica flex verse Lange flex (Inferno verse RS)

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

I am looking at the inferno blaze (on sale all over the web) verse the RS 110 and wondering if one trends a bit stiffer than the other.  I am replacing a pair of Tecnica Icon TNT XR which had a 120 rating but 11 years old and I am guessing the newer boots and plastic are just as stiff laterally. I am 5'10 160 and can still rip, but also still ski moguls, and am concerned getting the RS 130 will just tire me out.  Plus I figure I can stiffen up the Blaze or 110 with intuition liners if necessary.  I've already tried both boots in the store.  Also, does anyone have any intel on the RS leaking?  I can't believe in this day and age Lange can sell $700 ski boots that leak!   many thanks for any thoughts.

you can't make soft boots much stiffer

 

you can make stiff boots softer

 

all boots leak,  lange and all other brands

 

<insert snide comment about trying boots on in person, asking for online advice, and then not buying from the store that stocked them, and helped you>

 

 

 

 

but the inferno and RS will flex simlar,   but fit different.   make sure you have the right size, and good luck

Thanks but... I'm in the mid-atlantic, my local store only has the RS 130 in stock, and they only carry the Heat and not the Blaze (and no other Inferno's, just the Coachese).  I tried the Blaze in VT over holidays.  Perhaps you'll be happy to know I have spent a few hundred bucks on tunes with this shop.   Apology accepted.  And while I am at it, I will even explain that my Icon's cracked while I was up in Catherine's at Alta and so now I am bootless and don't have time or luxury to wait until next year.
 

also, I've had three pairs of Tecnicas and no leaks, unless you count the time I stepped into a foot deep pothole puddle in the Killington parking lot.
