In my quest for new skis I of course need new boots. Like my old skis I am in old boots. I cant believe how comfy boots are made today. Wow! what difference vs 20yrs ago lol. How light and comfy :)
But of course expensive :(
But whats cheap today? eventually gonna cost us 5 bucks just to wake up in the morning. lol but not really funny.
Anyway I (with the store rep) tried 4 pairs. The two I like best are the Salomon questpro 110 and the next is the rossi alias120.
The other two was another rossi and also a lang but cant remember the exact models and weeded them out since the first two were favored so it doesn't matter..
Anyway I didn't get to try the alias in a 100 flex because they didn't have one. Thouth the lang I tried was a 100 and it felt too flexible to me and not as comfy fit.
The salomon QP 110 is 499 and the alias 120 is 399. The flex feels similar on both and the rep said the rossis do run a tad softer than rated so it made sense. If money was not a factor the Salomon QP would be my choice if I had to make one but not buy a landslide. The rossi alias120 felt real good. Just not quite that extra little bit of better good I felt with the Sal's. I wuld like to try on the rossis in the 100 just to feel if its too flexy or not. I am 6"1" and 240. I'm no double black expert at all and at 50 I don't get as daring as I once was either but I ski very well and sometimes still drive hard and can flex a boot pretty hard especially when I drive and at my height and weigth.
the alias 100 would be 299. Pretty sweat unles of course its too soft.
Anyway anyone have the Alias120 or 100 and/or the salQP120?? what can you offer about them or have you skied both or perhaps something else.
