Hey guys, I know there is a thread somewhere on the different types of plastic used in boot shells but I dont think it answers my questions as far as I remember. 1. Which of the shell materials is the hardest to stretch or at least to keep stretched without having it return to its original shape? 2. Which is the most affected by U.V. exposure? 3. Which will last the longest without cracking or splitting? Is there an easy way to tell which is which without factory specs? In 30 plus years of skiing I've just experienced my first cracking shell. I admit I get great value out of my boots which is to say I keep them a LONG time and this is the first time I have had this happen.
