Charge like Seth in the boots you already own.

These come on my boots, but are a great upgrade for people wanting to have a stiffer ride. I go with a larger tongue. My boots are 25's and I use a 28-29.5 sized tongue. I find the larger tongues come up farther on the shin so you don't feel like your going over the tops of them like I feel on the small ones that come with my size boot. Its best to have the tongues (if going larger) when your molding the liner for the first time just so you get the perfect mold.
Change is quick and easy using a screw driver to help spread the connection wire on one end,pop it out and slide the tongue over to get out the other side. Replace in reverse of those directions.
Its worth while to have different stiffness especially if you ski the summer in North America or Europe when boots feel soft because of high temps.
Also I am reading the larger tongue concerns about the cables not lining up properly. I only notice it on the upper cable and its not big deal.
It says the size for these tongues is...
It says the size for these tongues is 30-31.5, does that mean they wont fit my 28.5 boots?
The larger tongue will fit on the boot, but the cables won't line up correctly with the recesses on the tongue. IME, using a larger tongue makes the boot feel less reactive, although some people go one size up on the tongue to stiffen up the boot.
^ This guy's right. If I were you I would scout around the internet for a correctly sized tongue though, it's really annoying when your cables just sit ontop of the tongue instead of fitting into the grooves like they're supposed to. Plus, who would size up for a "stiffer" tongue in a 10 Flex?
