Thank you so much for information.
The "reduce to lower size issue" on these boots is one I am looking into. There again seems to be two camps on this issue.
I have feet that are not same size.
I have a serious first toe swelling at first articulation.
I will try both models and determine which is best for me.
I am well aware of the cushion effect on boot liners, thus try to get a "tight fit" in October. By April after skiing every day I insert some padding between boot shell and liner. I special very thin foam sheet with n alu side. Thus I get that tight nice fit still.
All my boots have been modified initially over the first month ( in September). I have several boots; Head Raptor 115, Fischer Hybrid 12flex 120, Salomon Falcons 130. The Heads are the very best fit with major heat work on toe area. I do not care how boots looks. It is the fit that is most important. Thus I have an evident bump on the toe area.
Again thank you for your well informed answer.
