I have the burgundy decade sl from a few seasons ago. Northwaves fit my feet the best. I actually just got a set of legends. Not sure how much stiffer they are since they are also brand spanking new. I found northwaves to fit my wide feet the best though.

The new version doesn't use the metal piece anymore by the ankles. Seems like the lacing goes around a roundish plastic piece instead of the metal. I'm assuming it shouldn't really tear into the lace anymore but I guess we'll see.

its been hard to find reviews on these boots and the most talked about thing for them is for the laces ripping. however those threads were all from around 2009...
I have that on my boots with the metal tube by the ankle. I haven't put that many days on mine at this point as the last couple of seasons have been off years for me due to a lingering back issue but I personally haven't had to deal with it. They did address it in the newer models with the SL lacing system though. I believe they use plastic now and changed the way they're routed through it so it doesn't wear unnecessarily.

The Dialogue's are nice also, so if those are the one's you're able to try on and know that they fit right then by all means go for it.
