$50 Reward - hunting LANGE Superblaster boots

post #1 of 33
Thread Starter 

Ski Swaps are coming up all over America.

 

Locate the following ski boots and I will pay you $50.00 and of course I will pay for the boots and the shipping cost.

 

BOOTS

 

LANGE Superblaster   Size  26.5   Length  310mm    be in good shape no broken plastic etc. don't care about the liners just need the shell

 

 

                                                         

 

These boots are about 2010 model year and the plastic on mine has cracked pretty badly on the overlap tongue.  I have custom liners and footbeds that fit these boots and love the fit.  For me personally the best fitting boot I have used in some 50 yrs of skiing.  If I/you can find me another pair alll I have to do is drop in my liner and I will be a happy skier again.  Don't really want to  put my cell # on an open public site so if you are going to a swap, pm me and I will give you my number or just buy them and I will be all too happy to pay for the ski boots, shipping to Idaho and a $50.00 finders fee.

 

Anyway if a Bear can find me a pair that would be great.  I have searched Ebay etc. with no luck.   HELP

I assume you'll take them without the cat tracks.  You know what you like for sure.  If I see some I'll keep you in mind and get them for you.

There is a huge consignment chain shop in Utah called 2nd Tracks Sports. They have boots out the wazzoo. I'd call all three of their shops if I were you. I don't mind peaking in their Ogden shop for you but am not sure how soon I'll be over that way. They are in the middle of having their major gear swaps at all three locations this month. It's a good time to check with them. I have found their customer service to be really good, so hopefully they'll take the time to hunt for you.

 

Here are the numbers:

Ogden 801-621-2003

SLC 801-466-9880

Orem 801-607-2493

I found em
Lange XC 120
Just 6 years newer than the old ones
Even comes with a hike mode
intuition Liners and footbeds should drop right in

Seriously are you are gonna do a powder road trip this year with old boots ...

Yep,  they fit great, am a little worried about the crack but if I can't find a replacement (same boot) then will when, I have too, get a new boot etc.

Bump,   weekend swaps?   Still haven't found a pair.  Help

post #12 of 33

You'd be happier  in a new boot Pete. Get a 130 flex boot that is a 1/2 size too small that will kill your feet the first few outings.  It's a game changer.

WOW sounds great - going to Spokane tommorow will stop and look (briefly).

Just a bump since some swaps are starting to happen.

post #17 of 33

Go try some new SX120's or XT120's, you'll thank us.

BUMP.  Gotta be a pair at a Ski Swap somewhere.

post #19 of 33

I haven't forgotten about you, big swap next weekend. I'll see if I can find one.

post #20 of 33


6 swaps down, no luck yet.   I did see several orange/black RX130s though.



I'm pretty sure REI used to sell the Superblaster; they should be more common.    Maybe everyone likes theirs as much as you do.

Pete, I recently bought some new SX 120's from REI for $250 with free shipping...

If you have an REI anywhere near you can just return them to the store if not to your liking.

Yep, you can find the red/black ones for a little less and the SX series has the same 102mm last like the Super Blaster had.  However you can get a new boot with a liner that isn't packed out and sweated in for multiple seasons by a stranger.

Boots typically get better and better, no reason to move backwards.

Thanks for looking folks it is appreciated.   Whiteroom called me today and stated he found 2 pair of the Lange's I want at the Waitsburg Vt. ski swap and will get them for me tommorrow, Sunday.

Awesome, will post here if he gets them for me.  

 

Thanks for looking for me.  Pete

Talked to Whiteroom on the phone this am and they were the right boots, right size 25.6 but different boot- probably the narrower Lange which won't work.  Really appreciate Whiteroom going to the trouble of looking for me.  Pretty cool Idaho to Vermont via. Epicski.  Anyway search is still on.   thanks everyone

post #30 of 33

sorry that didn't work out, but 308mm boot sole is a different boot. The right model name, but not the right boot.
