First, I believe the 120 model is the "Comp" and is comparable to the old non-race L10. I think the race version is the 130 WC.
Regardless, are you sure the flex index for the new Langes are comparable to the index for the older shells?
I just read the reviews for the new shell (120 Comp & 130 WC) and old shell (110 and 100 Banshee) in SKI's September issue. Common comment was that the boots were possibly too soft.
I don't recall a SKI / SKIING buying guide ever commenting that the old L10 (non-race) was ever cushy or soft for all-mountain or freeride skiing.
I may be wrong but it seems that the index has been reset for 2003 for both old and new shells.
As an L10 owner seriously considering a new Lange, I would like to hear if anyone has any confirmed facts on this.
