Why do you want the Templar? I have a 158, so if you have any questions fire away. If you wanna buy mine, even better...
Yeah, I don't mean to say I'm forcing myself into smaller boots - but the sales guy at the board shop insisted I was a size 10/10.5, and that any toe squeeze would be solved by the liner packing out. So I'm just taking his word for it!

I did a bunch of research, and the Templar seemed to be a good match for my abilities/riding goals. I'm and intermediate rider and do all-mountain/free-riding only, no park, but want something with good hold for icy east coast pack snow. I also looked at the Ride Wild Life, and the K2 Turbo Dream, but from what I read online, the Templar was the best performer of the group with a little bit of added camber (vs flat) and the magtek edge. How did you like it?

I'd certainly consider it, haha! You can PM me on price and details...
