I have decided to buy Salomons, but now I am confused. X Max or X Pro? 130 or 120?
I enjoy all-mountain skiing, especially bumps and trees. Just got Volkl Kendos last season (they rock!) and I went short (170 cm). I am 55 yo, 180 lbs, 5'10" and only get to ski about 10-12 days per year. I am an aggressive skier but a slower than I was 2 decades ago. I have an average foot on the narrow side. I am used to the stiffness of the old Nordicas but I am not sure that I need that much stiffness now. And I can't tell the difference between the Max and the Pro from the descriptions on line except for the last.
Also, I am kind of cheap. Is it really worth $150 for a custom foot bed? Any options that are cheaper and almost as good?
