Raptor questionsThanks for the heads up to the new Head site. Good info on the new Raptor boots. Reading it over, I have these summertime questions for anyone familiar with them:
1) initial reports inidcated that the Raptors were more upright than the current RD/RS96s, but the catalog clearly states that the Raptors have increased FL (17 degrees). How does this effect the boot's stance?
2) what's the signifcance of the "lower ramp angle (5 degrees) in connection with the stated 17 degree FL?
3) encouraging to see their attention to heel-instep circumfrence and reduced volume here and in the cuff, thus eliminating, Head claims, the need for the "snack bar Bode used to push down his cuff for more control on his old [Head or other?] boots" -- now that's a good story.
Looking forward to trying these in the Fall...wondering how many versions stores will stock.
Replies and comments appreciated.
