K2 T1 Traditional Lace Boot Opinions

So I love my Zoom Force 1's but I'm looking for something stiffer that will hold up well on the steeps. I've came across the K2 T1 tl for a good price, and they seem to fit the bill. Obviously I would go to a lbs to try them on first (and buy em) but I would like some opinions first.

Do they pack out a lot or not much?

How well do they hold up?

Does the harshmellow help or does it just result in loss of board feel ?

Are they stiff in a good way, or so freaking stiff you feel like a zombie walking around?

Would you recommend them for retail at $279? What about at $150 ?

-Thanks I appreciate the feedback

They will pack out maybe a 1/4 of a size.

I have T1's that I put a season as a lifty and another season after that in. Their spines are gone but the boot itself is intact.

Harshmellow is from heaven. It is everything good.

Stiff in a good way for me, break em in and ride em.

Spend what you wanna spend on them. We never recommend used so if that's the $150, don't get those. Always get new.

Yeah the T1 is a killer boot and the liner lacing system they use is probably my favorite on the market.
