is this a good boot for an AT skier who may want to try tele skiing in the next few years? I am upgrading from the original Struktura but want a boot that is more focused on backcountry than sidecountry. This boot seems like a good weight and stiffness despite the bellows, but if someone else has 'experience' with the boot, that'd help. I have only tele skied a couple times, but am interested if I could score a set of skis/bindings that I don't have to buy another pair of boots for. Also, can you kinda-sorta tele ski in Dynafit AT bindings?
Hey Chris, the TX Pro is compatible with both NTN tele bindings and "tech" style AT bindings, but since you are primarily an AT skier I would recommend you buy a dedicated AT boot. For the type of skiing your looking for the Maestrale I think would be perfect. If you really want to try Tele in the coming years you can always use rentals to see if its for you, but for someone who is a dedicated AT skier you should get a dedicated AT boot.
And just to clarify you cannot tele in a Dynafit bindings (or any AT binding for that matter).
