Has anyone here skied both the Nordica Transfire R1 and the Fire Arrow boot? If so, I'd appreciate your feedback on both, and/or observations on their strengths, weaknesses and differences.
I'm looking to replace my current boots with the 3-buckle design. My priorities have shifted towards comfort first, then performance. Current ski and boot setup is Dynastar Myths w/ PX12 bindings ... boots are Nordica Beasts. The Beasts have worked OK for the past 4-5 seasons, but for a number of reasons, it's time to get new boots. This setup has worked well for me, including the forward lean. I am a 58yo skier, inter/advanced and ski ice and powder.
I tried various 3 buckle design boots earlier this year ... Dalbello and Tecnica and the Tecnica Cochise boots were very comfortable with decent performance. The point being I do like the 3-buckle design and a Nordica last works best for my foot.
Again, thoughts, observations and/or feedback are appreciated.
