there is no such thing as a DIN flex rating, the manufacturers all have their numbers and in theory a 100 flex from salomon should be the same as a 100 flex form nordica, lange, tecnica etc etc.... BUT in reality they are all a little different, this depends on the engineering of the boot and the type of plastic that they have injected into the mold
Impact 8 was 90 or 100 flex depending on the year/ version/ is it custom shell or not, it is going back 4 years or more though, so make sure that.....
1 the fit is right in terms of shape & stance
2 the fit is right in terms of length & volume
3 the flex is right for YOU, it is a personal thing, work with your fitter and forget the numbers
4 the price is REALLY right, you are buying old tech so expect it to be cheap, (e.g. we have some last years impact left in a couple of sizes, currently 50% off RRP, anything left in a month or so will get chucked on ebay)
