Ok what gives here with 32?
Tried on a pair if 32 Lashed today, and I've been using 32 for years. Has anyone noticed that the lashed for 2013 is hella stiff!?!? I went home and tried on my 2011 Lashed FT and they were like butter compared to the newer ones I tried on. Not to mention on 32's site they rate the Lashed FT stiffer than the Lashed. Now I know my old 32's are broken in but I was surprised how stiff the Lashed has gotten. Makes me think twice about buying them. I mean how much can a boot loosen up by breaking them in? I don't heat mold my boots I like breaking them in natural I find they last longer. Still shocked about how stiff they've gotten I've used the Lashed as my last three boots and these felt like my old Burton Ions. Makes me even not consider the TM Two, I like a softer boot. Wish they would have had the Prion in my size now...
I am basically intermediate, and I think the stiffness in my TM-2's is perfect. Different strokes for different folks.
I got out of stiff boots a few years ago. I used to ride Ions a lot but then I started to move away from pure free ride and more into Freestyle and park. So I like softer boot with more flex. But test different boots for different people.
