I skied the orange Maestrale last two years and thought it was a really good boot. Finally, a great touring boot with downhill performance. I picked up this year's boot and was very impressed right out of the box. You can just tell it's a beefier/stiffer boot. Then you put it on and that is confirmed. Substantially stiffer, but still tours great! And they only added a few ounces in weight. Nice work Scarpa.
I've been on skis 120mm underfoot and it drives em right where you want them.
The ankle strap doesn't seem to nestle in there as well as the older model? Very minor detail.
