I have 5 days on these in varying east coast conditions ( ice, loose granular, 2 foot pow @ Jay) and I love them so far. My last run @ Jay I took a run I normally don't take and ran into some large but powder covered bumps which I proceeded to mosh. When I got to the bottom I realized that I never partially locked the toe pieces ( there are 3 settings, fully locked, partial lock, and well i don't have to explain). The fact that I did not release after hitting a few bumps pretty hard in the unlocked position goes to show you how well these things are made. Can't wait to tour with them out west!

Anyone in the northeast who has bought or is going to needs to bring them to Brian @ http://highpeakscyclery.com/ in Lake Placid for the fitting of a lifetime (I know thats super cheesy but this guy is so thorough I couldn't believe I was on the east coast). After five days in these boots I can't imagine wearing anything else. Plus after comparing them with my Nordica Speed Machine 10's with custom Intuitions I cannot really say anything other than a little loss of stiffness is the only difference. No loss of performance and a whole lot of light boot and comfort is the best way I can put it. Thanks Brian!!!

Not much more i can say that Matthew Tabrys didn't say. I have Dynafit TLT Vertical FT 12 Bindings mounted on them and could't be happier so far. Beta- Day 1: @ Mt Snow with about a foot of fresh on top of boiler plate, good float and pretty good edge when it was needed. Day 2&3 @ Jay: the second day there was between 18-23 inches reported and had a blast on these things. Days 4&5 @ Iceface NY ( im sure those who know don't need the mts real name). It does not get any worse than this, 43 F and raining on top of blue ice in a lot of spots. I was still able to at least grab enough of an edge to stay in control. Day 4 was 32 F so everything froze over again covered buy sugary manmade ( I really hate the east at times). As miserable as it was these skis still held up the challenge. Bottom line is this is a pretty damm good ski that can handle the sh#t here on the east coast and then shine out west. See you guys out there in Feb :-)
