Default Anyone Tried Burton Ambush vs Ruler ?

Just trying to get a feel of the Burton Ambush if anyone here has tried them before or have any thoughts on them?

I'm either going to end up buying the Ambush or Ruler... but the ambush costs 30-40 dollars more.. not sure if they are worth it or i should just go for rulers... intermediate rider mostly on groomer and a beginner trying to learn half pipe and park.

Any input would be appreciated thanks...

I tried them last year.
Ruler is not bad, but too narrow for my foot.
Ambush is wider and much lighter.

I think it will depend which one fit you better.

whatever fits the best/is most comfortable.

NEVER skimp on boots, they are the most important part of your setup, as well as the most important part in having a good fun day.

most people get told this and it goes in one ear and right out the other...

try at least a few pairs of multiple brands. walk around in them for a little while and check out some other product in the shop. you can't get a good feel for a boot while sitting down with it half way laced up with just the left pair on...

everyones feet are different - so what feels great on me could be miserable on you.

good luck man.

thank you i already tried on many many many pairs in the store and i am narrowed down onto these two... the sales tried to push for the ambush... i haven't heard anything amazing about them yet.... and they cost more than the rulers.... so i was just asking for advice here... i tried a bunch of Vans.. but didnt like them

I highly recommend going to the hail's, they will be a better overall boot, from the liner to the outer-shell, the ruler is a stiffer boot and if its comfy and you like it go for it, but the ambush and hail are pretty different considering the small price difference, the hail is a better deal, i recommend that, its comfy as fuck and you'll be super happy with it

the only thing i am afriad of is that as i advance as a snowboarder that the hail will get too soft or flexible for me ? thats why i was thinking of either the ruler or ambush.... but the hail ? isnt that just a slightly stiffer moto ?

no you're right, i'd stay away from the hail if you're looking for stiff/supportive boot

thanks wasatchman...... i guess if i go any higher than the ambush/ruler something like the imperial it would be too stiff for an intermediate rider trying to learn park/halfpipe and riding groomers? (groomers, beginner park, beginner halfpipe)

i bought the ambush mid season last year and absolutely love them...never tried the ruler though

the ambush is sooooo comfy and love the dual speed laces. i have zero complaints about the ambush, and if they were to fall apart, id prolly buy another pair
