Got a nice deal on a mint pair of Tecnica Diablos at a NH ski shop.
Ok, but not the same.
Hunted on ebay etc forever, even posted a thread or two here and on other forums begging for someone to come up with a pair
of the copper colored Explosion 8's that never blow up. Have the brand new liner ready to insert.
No luck. Shame, because for the 3 hours this season I had the mint 8's on I experienced ski boot perfection....they were just freakin amazing!!!! Hadn't noticed how much my main pair had packed out......man they were good. I was really, really upset when the cuff broke off in my hands taking them off.
So the official who can't give up their old ski boots thread starter finally gave in.....
A brand new pair of Salomon Impact 10's have replaced the 8's in the customary spot next to the bed. They fit real nice and I am optimistic. Hoping to get one day on them before the season ends.....but might not be on the hill with them until November or December.
I'll post some pics and a mini review when I do!
......please carry on.
my 8's are still tucked in the closet still just in case.....
