I am getting back into skiing after boarding for the last few years. Last boots I had were some ancient Nordica 981 four buckle front entries. One new thing in some ski boots is shock absorbers and suspension and anti-damping features. Do these features actually work? If shock absorption does work, which boot(s) are really good at it.
I like the 100mm last on the hot rod series (not the 125 which is a 98mm last) and I'm 6'2' and about 210-215 pounds. I would like to try the hot rod 105 but the flex may not be stiff enough (hard to tell at room temp). I could go stiffer with the speedmachines as they have the same last but no shock absorption features. Looking for a versatile all-mountain boot.
Thanks for your imput.
