Hi, just asking for a bit of advice about flex index. I've skied in rossignols, xena x10 for about 4 years totalling about 13 weeks skiing. At the time of purchase, I was an intermediate/advanced skiier, comfortable on blacks and just beginning to carve and hit moguls hard. My fitter didn't let me know at the time, but the xena x10s have a flex of 40/50 and a last of 104, which match the specs of a beginner boot, as far as my research shows.
I'm now an advanced skier, pretty aggressive on the bumps and carving is automatic. Should I get a new pair of boots? My xena's have been good to me, they're only slightly packed in and in good condition. I just don't know if a stiffer, more 'advanced' boot will improve my skiing. I really want to start hiking up to the good snow too.
I have quite a wide foot, so I think a 102 last is ok, but I don't know what flex rating is appropriate if I do decide to buy a new pair. I know that Rossignol or Tecnica seems to fit my foot shape. But new season boots are quite expensive, so I might wait till 2015 anyway.
Many thanks for your replies!
