Full tilt First Chair vs Rossi world cup race boot?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Has anyone who skied on race boots and then skied Full tilts then back to race boots notice any transmission differences in the way the stiffer 8 or 10 flex Full tilt skis over a race plug?  The 10 flex FT is said to be in the 120+ range comparison. That should ski very well technically you would think? But Im not sure. I need a boot that can perform the required elements for CSIA Level4 standards. Head and Langs fit the bill but would a full tilt? I haven't seen many Level 3 or 4 guys or gals skiing Full Tilt is why I ask. Almost all wear a 4 buckle boot. Maybe because there like me and afraid to try it I dont know. Anyone have any experience skiing these boot at that level?

purely due to the 3 part shell construction compared to a classic overlap i would go for the race plug every time, there is no way you can get the same transmission from the full tilt, the same boot (when it was Raichle) may well have been the world cup boot of choice 30 odd years back, but they are not skiing in them now.

 

maybe if you want a comfortable to ski around all day and teach in boot or something for the park and pipe the full tilt is fine, but at the level of performance and precision you are looking for during your training and exam i would stick with the traditional type construction
