has anyone tried Technicas new boot ? I have the XT17 and love the boot although it tends to get wet pretty easily .

In comparison to the XT, the last is a bit longer in the toe box, narrower in the instep and ramp and flex are different - much more responsive and smoother. The XT would be equivalent to the Diablo Race 110 (17) or 130 (xt24). From there, the last widens a bit (under 2mm) for the Diablo Magnesium, Fire & Flame.
Chip Cochrane skied the Diablo race boot to two titles at US Nationals this year!

I've suffered through wet feet before using wicking socks. I swore my boot was letting snow in. Turned out it was me and my sock selection.
Not saying it's definitely a foot sweat issue, but it sure sounds like it.
