I was going to mount them with NNN Magnum bindings and use my original boot which is still good. I'm wondering if it would be worth it to get Garmont Excursion boots and 3-pin bindings instead. I've never used a plastic backcountry boot; I'm not a tele skiier on the slopes. However, I'm wondering if the extra control would be worth it, and these new Karhus are signficantly wider than my old 10th Mountains....I think 68mm compared to 56mm.
Is this worth the extra money? (a lot of extra money for those boots). I'd have to wait till next season because I can't find the Excursion in a 27 women's. I also have a very narrow heel, so I'm wondering about fit issues with the boots as well.
