So today I was at my local boot fitter. Here in Michigan most of my local shops don't have a ton of inventory. My boots I am in now are a size to small. My foot has grown over the past 3 years since getting them and I also think the last person I used as my boot fitter stuck me in boots too small anyways. So I am 46 years old and an Advanced skier. I tried on the RS 110's and they felt great pretty much out of the box. My left foot is a 1/2 size bigger than my right. My right is perfect but the left he is going to need to grind down my footbed just a tad to get a little pinching away from the top of my foot. I also tried on the Technica Mach 1's and though they felt like slippers and they were ultra comfortable the heel cup was way to sloppy and my heel when flexing forward was sliding up.
So they didn't have any XT's in stock but he ordered me the XT 120 because I feel that is the boot I want. I am coming from the Nordica Hell and Back and I really liked the hike mode for when I do boot pack hikes out west and just for walking around the lodge. So anyone with any experience with either the XT 120 or RS 110 I'd appreciate your pro's and con's. I am sure there are not many people who have actually skied both because boot demoing is pretty much non existent. Just like feedback both positive and negative on both the RS 110 and the XT 120. I know once he gets the XT 120 in and I can do a direct comparison between the XT 120 and RS 110 with them on in the shop it will make my decision easier but would just like some info before they show up next week.
