Lange rs140 or 130???

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

I am currently in a Nordica Dobermann WC130 and want a softer flexing boot. I am seriously considering Lange RS140 or 130. I was considering the RS130, but the Lange rep is recommending the 140 and saying it is softer flexing than my Dobbie130 WC.  I am an aggressive Eastern skier, PSIA level III.  I don't race any longer, and want a softer flexing boot with a little more fit comfort. Any suggestions on which way to go,  the RS140 or 130? Is the RS140 actually softer flexing than my Dobbie WC130's??

lange rs 140 is an rs 130 shell with a firmer liner. 

 

lange rs 140 is a more generous "pro" last, the dobi wc 130 is a narrower/lower volume "race" last.

 

so the lange is softer and the last/fit is more generous.

 

apples to apples comparison would be dobi wc 130 to lange wc za. or if you want the precision fit with a softer flex look at the lange wc za soft.

Thanks Starthaus... From your assessment, I am inclined to go with the RS140.  Since I am in my boots mostly all day, I am looking for a more generous fit for the comfort.  In addition your saying the 140 is a softer flex than my Dobie 130's.  Hopefully I won't notice much difference in performance.
