INFO: I am 6'1 168 lbs athletic. I ski 15 times a year if conditions merit. I ski pretty hard, No park. Bumps and powder always when available.
I wear a size 10.5/11 sneaker and have a very low volume foot.
Looking for some info on boot characteristics. Trying to get this figured out so I can get my equipment ready for that first good snow. I tried a Head Raptor RS 115 27.5 at Ski Stop outside of Boston. Great service there, wanted to buy, but didn't feel sure and I don't have $ for mistakes. The boot felt quite comfy. I wear a size 10.5/11 sneaker and have a very low volume foot. The Raptor was about the lowest volume men's boot the shop had. I read online that they would pack out and start to feel big. I was a little bit worried that it would pack out and start to feel big because it was totally comfy in the store, no pressure points at all, no bad feelings under flex (I know it all sounds good, right).
Anyways, I noticed that the Lange RX 130 LV is a 97 mm last and that the Rossignol Experience 130 is the same shell with some slight modifications. Are these boots lower volume than the head raptor 115 RS? I don't care about the 15 flex difference?
Additional Info - I tried my friends atomic hawx 100 26.5 and they were ok except I my toes touched front until max flex. I don't think the fit was as good as the raptors.
