il moro ID or krypton pro ID? desperate

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
before you annihilate me and i get thirty replies that all say "go to a boot fitter", i did. i have narrow feet, i like both of them, in 25.5. neither of them give me any painful pressure points and fit great. i tour, ski slackcountry, trying to get into a lot more park, and am an instructor all winter when i'm not at school. i know that the difference on paper are:
 
-Gold Intuition liner in the pro, Silver Intuition liner in the il moro (gold is denser = stiffer)
-2 buckles and a dynalink closure in the pro, 1 buckle and a dynalink in the il moro
-traditional power strap in the pro, ratchet strap in il moro
-pro comes with stiff and medium tongue, il moro comes with soft and medium
 
has anybody actually skiied them and has useful feedback to help my buying decision? right now i can get them for equal prices, so cost isn't a concern. also does anybody know if theres any way to get a stiff tongue from dalbello to throw on the il moro, or if you can somehow rig a booster strap on the il moro? thanks, sorry for the really long intro.

the il moro omes with both tongues, teh black tongues are the stiff. There are also clips that go in the cuff to increase stiffness as well. I really like my il moros

 I own both. I have been in a Krypton since they came out (Flexons for the 20 years prior). I have Pro's and the new IL Moro T ( Gummy Bear Boot) . If you are looking for the "stiffness" and reading through your post, thats what is sounds like, if thats the case, go with the Pro. Personally I like the a softer boot so I have my Pros set medium and my IL Moros stiff. Both Pairs I am using the Silver Liner, it is more comfortable...to me. If you have a very narrow foot, the Gold might be a bit better.

really appreciate your response Philpug. would you say you ski your pros or il moros more frequently, and for what kind of skiing do you prefer each for? also, do you know any 'custom' ways to make the il moros stiffer? i've heard that some manual modifications can do the jobs with a 3 piece design.

 As of late, I am skiing the IL Moros more. I tent to ski bumps, trees and off piste mostly. There are some adaptors you can put in all the Kryptons to stiffen them up but you won't get an IL Moro as stiff as a Pro.
