How were the Diablo's laterally compared to the XT's? I tried the XT's last year and when I plumbed from my knee down to my foot, the plumb was on my little toe (most boots are right at 2nd toe). When I skied them, I was very, very bowlegged. I couldn't get onto the big-toe edge of my outside ski-I was constantly stuck on the inside ski. Quick initiation, but couldn't release at the end of the turn. My bootfitter said he would have trouble getting me back to neutral in that boot, since I was so far out. Too bad-the boot was of perfect flex and fit for me. Super repsonsive and powerfulI would have loved to keep it. I was thinking about checking out the Diablo if it is more neutral.
