I'm getting new boots this season, and the shop has recommended the Tecnica Dragon 120 Hiperfit. I tried on the Dragon Slayer model today as they haven't received the Dragon 120 stock yet, and it fit very well in a 27.0 (street shoe 10-10.5, euro 43, width C-D I think? Wide forefoot). The bootfitter who seemed very knowledgeable recommended I try the Dragon 120 as the Dragon Slayers were a bit soft for my liking and size (205#).
They were tight but not painful in the shop (might try a 26 just to see, bootfitter recommended against it, said it's possible if I'm willing to suffer and have a lot of return visits, but I'm coming from 28.5 Head S12's which are too big, so 27 is an improvement).
I see this boot appears unchanged the last few seasons, is anyone using it any what is their experience like? Boots are of course an individual thing, just wondering general experiences with flex, performance etc. With my wide feet he didn't recommend any of the 98mm lasted boots (Dragon 130, Lange RS130 or RS130 wide). The DS certainly felt great fit wise but was too soft.
