What flex index are my boots?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Hey guys,

 

Anyone know what the flex is on a Lange Banshee 9? (picture is here: http://i.imgur.com/XpvrbAa.jpg)

 

Also, there are two bolts on the back that I removed which seemed to soften the boot a little bit and it seems like I like it a bit more this way.

 

Any clue what the flex on the boot is and how much the bolts remove?

 

 

Thanks in advance!

Only important question is whether you like the results.  Boot flex numbers are not systematic and it is therefore impossible to use them for anything meaningful.

Hey Lou,

 

Thanks for the reply.

 

The reason I was asking was because I am looking to upgrade my boots as they are quite old (7+ years now), and wanted a starting off point as to what to look at.

 

Most of the newer models have the specific flex right on the boot.

Good reason and you are right.  Still the numbers don't correlate.  Perhaps a better method is simply to know that a typical flex for an aggressive  male with some technical abilities is around 115.

Thanks Lou,

 

Another follow up:

 

What boots should I be looking at if I want a fit similar to my Lange Banshee 9 and a bit softer flex (or flex similar to equivalent with the bolts on the back removed).

 

If it helps:

 

I am 6'0", ~175 lbs upper intermediate ski pretty much anything on piste (front-side)

 

All the new models confuse me and I dont even know where to begin.
