I am a Japanese telemark skier living in Japan, and I am a user of Tx-pro and Tx.
Therefore I inform you of news in Japan about Tx-pro.
A recall on TX-pro is already announced in Japan by a Japanese distributor of SCARPA.
The distributor announced it so that there was a defectiveness point in Shell of Tx-pro when a shell might be broken during the use by the combination with NTN binding.
And the distributor collected all the products which they sold (about the thing without the abnormality) and announced that they changed it for an improved product (they will receive these products in the end of March from SCARPA).
These were announced on the homepage of the distributor (if you understand Japanese, you can confirm this by choosing Japan among the homepage of SCARPA as an area of the distributors).
Tx is not sold in Japan for this season (so I purchased Tx from Backcountry.com of the United States through the Internet).
Therefore, it is not mentioned about Tx in Japan.
However, that the destruction of similar boots happens were reported by various Internet articles.
When I think about the safety in the backcountry, as for me, I must use the old system till improved boots are available.
I was experiencing that these boots give me the splendid performance.
So I am disappointed because for the exchange time of the product is the end of March.
And the reason is because it means that I cannot use these boots at the time of best state in Snow season.
Therefore, I wish SCARPA gives us quickly response.
