I have a pair of HEAD Edge 9.7 High Performance Ski Boots from 2006. It has an adjustable flex on it and it reads that it flexes between 5.0 and 6.0. My question is, what does this mean for comparison with HEAD's models back then to today?
I know you can't really compare flex numbers between brands, but with numbers like 5.0 or 6.0, now I can't really compare within the brand from year to year. Boot Manufacturers seem to be going with numbers like 60 70 100 120 130 instead of 5.0 or 6.0. So naturally I would think a 5.0 is like a 50 and a 6.0 is like a 60, but knowing how non-standard boot flex ratings are, I don't assume anything.
So the issue is, I know how my boots perform, and I am thinking about getting a new pair. But I can't compare a 5.0 / 6.0 to the current number system.
Hope this question makes sense. Does anyone have any idea?
