Replacement for Head Vector 110

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Currently using 2011 Head Vector 110 boots.  At the time, they and the Atomic Hawx were the best fit for my foot, with excellent snug heel pocket and ankle hold, while having good room in toebox and enough room above instep.  The Vector 110 has a 103mm forefoot last, but really nice ankle/heel hold.

 

Looking to significantly shorten the list of possible candidates for replacement.  What would be top recommendations for consideration with the fit characteristics I described?  Would Lange RX120 or SX120 be a serious consideration?  Is the current Vector 110 EVO similar in its last to the 2011 model I own?  If there are other suggestions, I would appreciate the insight.

 

Thanks!

firstly, (and through no fault of your own) the vector is a 101mm last!  the published 103mm is for a size 27/27.5 shell almost every other company measures their last on a 26/26.5 shell 

 

so for the contenders i would look at the RX 120 or the vector evo, the evo is a little different to the original vector, and both the evo and the lange have quite different shapes, best thing is to work with your boot fitter try them both and be guided by the fitter and your feet

i don't want to start guessing boot models having never seen your feet.... if you are based near smugglers nip over and see Benny at inner boot works in Stowe

While I love skiing at Smugglers', I live just north of Charlotte, NC ... not exactly the hot-bed of skiing!  I will make a trip down to SC to see Mike Tambling.
