Eric,

 

Who knows if or when you might happen upon this reply to your post of early 2013 regarding rear entry boots. I'm both interested and amused by so many varying opinions with regard to old vs new ski boot design. And then as I'm scrolling through this Epic Ski Forum (it rocks by the way) I see your "when do we get a modern Scott boot design."

 

Hallelujah! I'm still skiing them! It's my assumption you were probably joking and being somewhat facetious when you wrote this, and that's certainly OK with me. At the least, Scott Superlights and Superhots were probably the most polarizing and controversial piece of ski equipment invented over the past 40 plus years. Why? I don't really know, but is evidenced by the great disparity in the stated opinions read on forums such as these.

 

And now I discover that there are as deeply committed diehard's to other cherished manufacturer's boots as I've been to my Scott's. Who'd have thought? I guess I never really paid any attention to what others wear, or what others use, and why they've chosen whatever it is their using. Who cares? As long as whatever it is that one enjoys works for them, who's to argue? Skis have made vast improvements in the enjoyment of skiing. In my opinion, boots have not.

I have the Orange Lange Banshee's from the 1980's.
Amazing boots. No cracking plastic.

Keep boots if they fit and perform.

And above all, let's hear it for bumps!
