I'm going from 2000'ish Lange L10's I've skiied for a long time now. I had to have those boots punched at the ankle to fit my foot without hobbling me on long days of hard skiing.
I'm 6'5" 300#... so I've always assumed I need the stiff boots otherwise with weight/height... I can bend lots of boots pretty easily.
From reading threads here and elsewhere, though, I notice people mentioning the daleboots are typically softer in the flex department.
I guess I don't know how much this style of boot will throw me compared to my langes. Will it feel like wearing a hiking boot, or is there plenty of resistance?
If I don't go the new boot route... I'd love to throw some intuitions in my existing langes... but I think that ship has sailed due to my trip schedule
