Looking for a comparison, feedback, impressions, etc.from anyone that has spent time in these two boots (or their various other flex offshoots). I've been in the Lange for the last 5 years. I know it inside-out, and thoroughly love this boot.
I know the raptor has the same ramp angle as the Lange, with i believe +2° more forward lean, what appears to be significantly thicker plastic, and a curvier/shaped last that makes it feel slightly lower volume. But how does it ski?! Is it as versatile as the blue boot? Or, does it lean more towards the frontside/racecourse? I notice there are a lot of free skiers on the blue boot (and not on the RX) whereas not so much with the white boot. Is there a reason, or is this a result of each of their marketing strategies?
I know the answer is "go ski them", but I'm hoping to get some feedback before i start punching plastic
Thanks in advance.
