Has anyone used a soft boot with switchback bindings?

Responded on

Yes, I paired them with the Fischer BCX and Voile Switchback bindings on Karhu Guides and it turned weird fast. It was great on the uphill, of course--I had tons of kick and glide and it was really comfortable and free feeling. But when I headed down, the BCX were just not enough to drive the ski. I think that whatever you pair this with, soft boots are going to be more comfortable but not enough to drive a setup on anything steeper than 25%.
