Flow Talon problems

hello, i just bought 2 pair of flow talon ( i will keep the one that fit me the best) i have 2 questions:
- On the boots the boas on the bottom seems to be full on very quikly.
and when i want to loosen them it seems that they don't loose up.
this is happening only on the bottom boa on 2 pairs on right foot only.
The 2 pair of boots are 11 US and 10.5 US
When i tight up those boas it makes the shoes squeak even with 2/3 rotations.
the boas on top are all ok.

- Last question is are flow talon are going to pack a lot with first ride ?
Cause i have to choose between the 10.5 ( which is very tight ) and the
11 ( which is maybe to much confortable )

thanks for your time and sorry for my bad english

Size down, They pack out.

The lower boa is easy to loosen by pulling up on the tongue after you release the boa's. I have talons and hylites, same system On both. Make sure you pull the inner liner lace completely loose too, after you pull directly up and loosen the tongue.....

i have the focus hylite and if you look in the liner, there is a tag on the laces in the liner, make sure your pull the tag, it is there to help you loosen liner, once the liner is loose foot comes out easy. Kills me that flow does not document how to use some of the features that they built in thier boots
