uurrrgghhh!!!! A pet peeve of mine. PEEPS!!!

PEEPS are those squishy yellow things that come out around easter, give you a stomach ache if you eat too many (like say, TWO), and explode when you put them in the microwave.

I try to be hip and look what happens... Well since we are talking about pet peeves.. My biggest one is processes(prounouced pro-ce-ceees by almost 99% of my co-workers) while commentate is a close second..

sorry I can't "commentate" on your new Dalbellos, I have never had a pair. I am sure, however, that there are many here who have put them through the necessary testing "processees" and can give you a better answer.

(Word peeve #2, "My Bad." rrrrrrrrrggghhh. hate that.)

"My Bad"... I will take an "Action Item" to search thoroughly and "Touch Base" with developments, at the end of the day.. Came out pretty lame but you get it..

.. Thanks Phil... When they say low volume.. these things ARE low volume.. These boots fit around my shins perfet unlike the salomon Performas I was on... The dynamic heel adjustment is awesome as well.. It also satiated the gear-head in me that it has so many options to play with..

Personally, the only problems I've run into on the Pro's was in the toe box width (had to be ground and blown out), which then made the toe buckle suceptable to opening up on its own (needless to say I've been to bootfitters I thought were better, but live and learn). In terms of the Cross (which is what I tried on because the smaller shell Pro's hadn't come in) I found a very similar fit, just too soft a flex for me. Personally, my Pro's are as stiff as I can make em, a few people have commented that they didn't think they could even flex em, but I bend em like most people bend the softer tongue. The nice thing, though, is that you'll probably like how the flex of the boot is very smooth through the entire flex.

Some how I feel they packed out faster then I have experienced. I have the Avanti, when I first bought it end of last season, it fits really fine, but after no more than 20 days of skiing, I feel it had packed out a bit already.

I have just went back to put in heel lifters.

Manus... I had to have my previous boots shell expanded. My forefoot flares out and somehow the toe box feels just right and snug with the kryptons...I am a pretty skinny, light guy and doubt if flex would become an issue.. But the shop tech mentioned that they would be able to swap out the tounge to make it stiffer if I ever felt like the flex was too soft..

Jackwan.. It was one of my concerns that the liner might pack out soon but the shop guy thinks otherwise and also mentioned heel lifts if it boild down to it..Time will tell..
