you could for sure work the ski, the feed back is pretty much instantaneous. if the price is really really good buy them. you will note the other points on my list, right?
Thanks, ejc. Yes, I did see the other points. The most serious seems to be the difficulty with cold temperatures. However, my boots are stored in a ski locker and stay at the resort and I don't think that would be much of an issue for me.
I'm guessing the triangular toe piece means a smaller area for your toes. I can only know how that feels when I have the boots.
It is a bit of a gamble, but I will probably go ahead and order them at the cheap price.
Since you noted that the monoblock shell was immovable...and that wasn't needed for today's race ski. What negative things happen when skiing due to the shell design? I appreciate having as much direct contact with the ski as possible and instantenous interaction is good in my book, though it can be bad for other skiers. What was the bad aspect about the shell?
Thanks for all the input!
