SSH, i haven't tried on the current models from Head and Dalbello. I have a friend who skis in the Avanti V-Comp (lime green model) and taking a look at his stance it looked to me that boot doesn't have a very upright stance. About HH, what can i say? I will never visit that PMTS forum again. If i should listen to him, the first thing i should do now is throw away my Alu Comps because they are rotary and i should not be able to carve in them. Well, i can, maybe he can't... If i should follow his advice, the only boots i should consider are the Heads and Dalbellos. I think these manufacurers make good boots (we should ask Jeff Bergeron to be sure) but this doesn't mean that these are the only boots we should consider buying. So i don't care what HH thinks is good or bad, it's irrelevant to me.
Atomicman, i am currently skiing in a friendly plug. I do think that my boot has a bit too much forward lean to fell comfortable, but it's not too bad. I would be interested to know the figures for my boots. Maybe someone who knows the figures will share them with me. I would be most interested to compare them to the Diablos.
Lostboy, too bad that ski mags don't to that anymore. I wish i knew the degrees of forward lean and ramp angle of my boots. Maybe a bootfitter could help us here...
Max, i don't know how good those reviews are, but the same reviews can be found on www.bootfitters.com
and i must say that the reviews from bootfitters are more comprehensive (at least they have been until this year).
I can't end this without showing just how good S*******g is (if someone had any doubt). I found the Salomon X2 Lab review very interesting: http://www.skiingmag.com/skiing/gear...700295,00.html
(note what they say about the fit)
Well, this is what Jeff Bergeron said: Quote=Jeff Bergeron "Salomon X2- Good boot, but harder to fit. Usually sqeezes the toes withough providing exceptional hold in the heel. Make friends with a boot guy" You can find this in his thread. So, it's not the same thing, isn't it? I wonder who i should believe... still can't decide... maybe someone can help? LOL
