I am sure I'm going to get yelled at pretty bad for this one....but what the heck.
I've been skiing for 25+ years. I am 5' 9", 170 lbs, and I ski Vokl Kendos. I am a strong expert skier, and I ski everything....groomers, trees, bumps, and whatever powder I can get out here on the East Coast. No park skiing really, except for playing around with my 7 year-old.
I've always just sort of purchased what was on sale, and made it work.
Then last year I purchased the Kendos and man, what a difference from the 8 ft tiger sharks that I was skiing. Love the Kendos.
Now...my boots. they are like 10 years old, maybe. Head Edge 7.0. They hurt, my fleet slop around in them, etc. I've always just sort of overcame it.
Would a new boot make things THAT much better?
