At a local ski shop at my actual "home mountain" I have recently had the opportunity to dry-fit the Scorpion 130 (don't know exactly which MY).
Fit is very good, feelings my feet are sending back very, very positive.
I have nearly decided to replace my old Tecnica XT17 with this boot. Plus, it's a sale deal being the last pair in the shop...
I've always felt attracted by this boot since its inception but I must say that, after the initial mass diffusion in the general skiers area, it's somehow disappeared...
I still see it at the feet of young racers, ski instructors (not many anymore) and master racers but, as an example, its tamed down version (the one I'll probably end up with)
is nowhere to be seen at the feet of "everyday skiers" like me.
Another funny thing I've noticed is that no top ranking athlete (Voelkl athletes seem to be all on Fishers) is using it to race in the Worldcup arena.
Why so? Is there any technical aspect of the boot that withhold it from "going big" (both "up" in the racers world and wide in diffusion/sales numbers)?
