I'm looking at new boots-currently in '04-'05 Lange Comp 120MF. In preparation for next weeks race/pro night at one of our local retailers,I made a boot trying visit yesterday. I tried the ATomic RT CS 130, the Tecnica Race Pro 130, and the Nordica Doberman Pro 130. Of the three, I liked the Atomic the best. I went down to a 25.0/7 (my current boots are 8/8.5) and while they were darn tight, they weren't agonizing. With some grinding and breaking in I feel they will be fine.
Any bears using this particular model? Reactions?
I'm not displeased with my Langes and would like to try the new WC130 HP, but so far they are not in stock. Why new boots after just two years?
Frankly, the Langes are getting tired. They've got about 120 days on them,and the buckles and liners are getting worn. Our shop gives a 50% trade-in within 3 years, so I'll have used them for about $90.00 a year which ain't bad.
Thanks for any advice!
