Thanks for the replys Sandy. Ok, I get the R2006 is quite different. (Got section photos?
I ask here because it's difficult to get the info on plug boots outside the polyethelyne curtain. I've got some access, but not a lot of people do. It's highly unusual to have section photographs of boots, which is why I reposted them. If the industry only made some of that available on boots, fitters would have a lot less explaining and hair pulling to do to get their fit point across.
Hey, since today's the anniversary of the Berlin Wall falling maybe it's a good time to get this info.
I'll sum up the info I know:
Feel free to correct any thing that's out of place.Lange R2006:
92mm last. more vertical throat to lower cuff than RL12 both in fore/aft and medial/lateral direction. Lace up liner with flo in heel. 3 flexes available ZA ,ZB ,ZC - I think they correspond to roughly 120, 130, 150 flexes. I suppose if you find someone willing you could mix upper and lower flexes.Rossi RL12
Leather lace up liner.
Here's a video of the Rossi. Not much info though.
New lace up liner that's nicer than the last one. Not sure if it's flo pack in ankle.
Has an extruded aluminum boot board that is bolted to the shell with 2 screws in the back, 2 in front. Those come in from the sides. Holds the whole puppy together. No more floppy bootboards!
That is called "Efficient Dynamic Technology" - EDT tmHead Raptor RD
Flex: Supposedly available in 120 red shell?, 130 grey?, 150 white shell?
"Double canting" - I guess you can adjust both sides of the upper cuff to...twist it somewhat?
You can take out the screws in the rear cuff to adjust the flex of the shell.
There's a "lacing option" according to Ski Racing Mag.

Ok, here's a video on the Raptor RD
(It's a series of short clips, several are on the Raptor. If you keep letting it go it explains other boots too. There's also a video lower on the page of a Raptor 125 RS - 98mm last)
