I have both the Driver X and Ions.
I use my Ions as my resort boots and the Driver X as my tour boots.
The Driver X are stiff compared to the Ions. In fact they make the Ions seem like squishy park boots when going from a tour day to a resort day. I've also used my Driver X on my freestyle board and found myself over reacting at first. It was really funny and scary at the same time.
If you are looking for a resort boot unless you are ultra aggressive or are going to ride pipe all day I'd get the Ions over the Driver X.
If you are only going to use them for BX/Slalom I'd get the Driver X.
I am a Vermonter living in California showing the locals how to keep it real!
