Default 2012 Rulers v. Restricted Rulers

So Ive been looking for new boots and tried on about a million pairs at my local shop and i got hooked on the rulers. I tried on the restricted rulers and regular ones. My question what is the difference between the the 2 and is the restricted any better. Theyre both $200 in the shop but i found the regular rulers cheaper online.

2012 Burton Ruler vs 2012 Burton Restricted Ruler

looks like imprint 3 vs imprint 2 on the liners, and air vs gel on the cushioning...

The above site is wrong, they both have imprint 2 liner. The only difference i think is that the restricted version has EST midsole which makes it very slightly lower to the ground. This is supposed to give a little more feel, but slightly less shock absorption. In my opinion the difference is so small, that it isnt noticeable. As for Air vs B3 gel cushioning, i dont think there is much difference either.

The EST optimized soles are supposed to improve board feel, but I'm not really sure how much of a difference it makes.

For the money they are a good choice IMO. Yeah I wear them and they have been solid for the money I paid ($100) or so on last years ruler. For that money or even $200 they are a good choice IMO. Comfy and firm enough for me.

Glad you like your K2 darkos, but who is to say they are better than the rulers I bought which were 109 shipped?

I am not into BOA and I use cartel bindings so the boots mesh perfectly with them.

I am not saying the rulers are better than your K2s but probably as good. Each to their own.

I am definitely with you in that I always buy boots on sale rather than full price.
