Can someone tell me the differences between the two? Is one superior to the other?

At any rate, I use Thermoflex liners and I love them.

I know that Scarpa and Dynafit have options for most of their Randonnee and Telemark boots, which are marketed as Thermoflex. Intuition is a small Canadian company whose liners are superior to the old Thermoflex - same technology (EVA foam sheets that are heat-moldable) but have better quality control. What is interesting that Garmont's new Randonnee boots have liners that are all heat-moldable (all have a tongue - even the high four-buckles), and www.MoldableLiners.com has the same thing. Kneissl and Raichle have gone belly-up in the U.S., but I'm not sure if they sold their Thermoflex process to different companies here - I don't think so, but I have no way of checking.
