I have had the Nordica Beast 12 for about 5 years now and the liner is beyond totally packed out..i looked into liners, but since i live in Florida there is little oppurtunity. The boots are completely fine (to my untrained eye). I am looking to upgrade to another boot. It seems how companies categorize their boots varies quite a bit. Historically, I have been able to fit into almost any Nordica, and some Tecnica's, and Atomics. What companies offer the highest quality/durable liner as I would still be using my boots if they still had a usable liner. (I understand 100 days is probably a lot to expect from a factory liner).
I am a pretty good skier, I like to push myself. The flex index of the Beat's were 90, but I have heard that is different for each manufacturer as there is no standard....so what would a 90 flex index in the beast equate to atomic and tec? I could go a tad bit higher, but not to much i think. I guess i am looking for a performance high end boot that is really comfy (oxymoron?) How do you think the following models compare to what i have:
Nordica supercharger enforcer
Tecnicha vento 95
Atomic....I am not sure if i would fit into high performance or big mountain...
god i hate buying boots..snow gods bless
