You imply comfort/warm are in incompatable w/ performance. Maybe it would help if you could quantify what you mean by performance.
You do a good job of talking about something you've never tried.
Calm down friend!
why are you getting so defensive.
I believe I have given a fair and balanced response to the question at hand.
I have spoken with many expert bootfitters. i don't think after all the years i have skied and been involved with bootfitting with myself and my sons that I have to actually ski in the Intuition to understand them. I can't even stand a retail shelf boot with a normal liner.
there is no way that all that material between your foot and the shell can possibly have the kind of responsiveness that a minimalist liner with your foot as close as possible to the shell can and that is what I prefer.
I have said over and over if his main goal is comfort and warmth and you don't race that the Intuition is probably a great option.
I have not said he should not use them! On the contrary, i said if they fit his goals and he likes them by all means use them.
they are not for me. But I never siad they are horrible or no one else should use them.
Have you skied in a Plug boot???? I will assume not. How would you know what the difference is unless you
have skied in them
Around here though, the main people i see in Intutions are spolied rich housewife's scurrying their spoiled little brats to the hill from the minivan who just care about thier looks and that their feet are warm & comfortable.
actually that's not true, I know a coupl;e of very good skiers who use them, but their shop is the biggest promoter of Intutions in the area, so if they didn't have them after all the hyoping they do, it would be an embarassment on the hill wehen they ran into their customers!
I truly hope you love your liners and have a great season!!!!
