If you decide on anything with the contact baseplate go L/XL...I wear size 9 boots and my M/Ls were pretty snug.
Hey my problem has been solved! I went to a local ski shop to check the Pros out and I told the dude I was also think atlas even though it is more stiff. He told me he had a pair of last years models and a huge discount. So that made up my mind for me! I guess I will have to wait to see what the Contact Pros are about. either way I am happy. The Atlas seem stiff but not too stiff like the force. Should be good with my med stiff board.
