I no longer have the Tii's, but that would be a good thing to try- a side by side comparison. I have to try and find out what boots I had last week at Copper- the flex was on the stiff side- almost a little more than I would like. These were a Solomon (maybe Performa model) rental boot from Peak rentals.
The problem I have is that I'm in NC and there aren't many ski shops that sell Lange boots to try on. This past weekend I was in NJ and was able to try a few different models and narrow down my sizing/flex options. I used to ski steep moguls fast, but this has changed somewhat since I tore my ACL back in the late 80s. Now I like to ski fast on blue cruisers (with the wife) and still do ski moguls- just slower, and also like to ski on flatter steep trails. I’m 6’ about 180, like to ski longer skis around the 177-184 range. If the Tiis were a flex around 120, I’m thinking that a flex around 100 would work nicely for what I’m doing on the mountain now.
The other issue- as mentioned above, is that there is only one ski shop that sells Langes and they’re about 1 ½ hours away. So I’m probably going to buy the boots online (GASP!!). Would anyone know of any good shops in the Raleigh, NC area that would work on boots that weren’t purchased from them? The shop in NJ has a great fitter that helped me figure out which direction to go with the Langes, and I feel very comfortable with purchasing the boots on-line. The past two sets of boots I’ve owned have been Lange and they both fit very well with no work done to them afterwards. Thoughts?
