Quick question: Does anyone remember the Rossignol Race 3 boots (from the early 2000's I think)? They were the bright yellow ones (http://katuha.com/adpics/4cfe9524b723696619fc4f4c1.jpg ).
Anyways, I've been using them for eons now, and they finally snapped last winter so I need to buy a new pair of boots. Does anyone remember what the Flex rating was on the Rossignol Race 3 boots? I ask, because I loved the Flex rating of those boots, but can't remember (or find any information on the internet) what the rating was.
I'm looking to buy the 2012 Rossignol World Cup 130 boots as a replacement, but am wondering if 130 flex is a bit aggressive. I still race in a 'masters' league. I'm 5'9'' 145lbs if that helps...I don't mind a hard boot as I get more performance out of my skiis with a harder boot, but would 130 flex be too much?
I also plan on 'free skiing' in these boots...
Any help would be appreciated. Thanks,
