I have been telskiing for about six seasons now and I just goth these boots. They replaced my old red ener G's and I dropped em down a size with the vodoo's for a more performance fit. These boots are incredible for a number of reasons. first is how light and tour/boot pack friendly they are, no complaints hiking or skinning and they have a great walk mode.
The better news is that they ski better than they hike, especially if you have an aggressive style and like to snap or smear turns quickly. With an aggressive active binding like the hammer head you'll really notice the lateral control you simply won't get with other boots. The 4 different kinds of plastic give it great looks and stiff alpine style construction with only 3 buckles( I WAS SKEPTICAL ABOUT 3 BUCKLES) but I added a booster strap and they work great on any big mtn terrain.
These boots don't have stiff bellows like customs of t races its a smooth flex that works great. originally I thought they wouldn't be aggressive for my fat skis and hammer heads, but the lateral stiffness makes up for the lack of bellow resistance. great boot garmont nailed this one
