No, I have to admit. This GM would be stiffer/more responsive than Fame or Escapade? Any men's you would recommend?

Only problem I have regarding my calves is that my women's boots (Salomon F2.0) are too tight at the top so I have to loosen them when I'm skinning. I guess women are supposed to have skinnier calves than I do. My boots are taller than the highback on either binding, so the binding doesn't have anything to do with my calf height.
Good to know!

BTW: Have you looked into boots with BOA? Found my double BOA K2 Contour extremely handy for skinning. Don't know how it is for you, but especially during the first hours I get uncomfortable every half an hour. With the BOA you don't even have to stop hiking, you can adjust the tightness of the inner and outer boot seperately while taking steps.
