Salomon Synapse , Synapse Focus, F22 differences

What's the difference in flex between these boots?

I can see is the Synapse has laces and the Synapse focus has BOA.

All three are an 8 of 10 flex on the Salomon scale, but The Good Ride reviews last years Synapse as a medium flex boot and the F22 a stiff flex.

I understand that the F series have different liners, and a narrower foot print as do the Malamutes. I also see that what looks to have
replaced the F22 is the F 4.0 with some funky, interesting, lace system. It has an 8 flex according to Salomon.


Anyone have any real world knowledge?

I called Salomon this morning, talked to a couple guys.

According to them the F22 is not as stiff as the syanpse (it's replacement for this year is the F3.0).

The only difference between the Synapse and the Synapse focus is the focus is BOA.

The Synapse is equal to their F4.0 in terms of flex. The only other boot that is stiffer is the Malamute.

This all according to them. It all matches up with their specs listed on all the websites, but doesn't really match up with the review sites.

Take it for what it's worth. I'm headed to the store to try them all on and get yet more opinions to confuse me further.
