Default Ride Insano

So im looking to pick up some new boots this year and I am really interested in Ride's Insano Focus Boa for 2013. Has anyone demo'd these or riden them?

Im an all mountain rider and never enter the park.

I have a pair but haven't ridden them yet. I think killz uses them so he can probably let you know.

If no one else tells you then after i ride them i will let you know.

I find the fit a bit larger then other brands, burton, 32, dc. If i was to be comfortable in a burton boot it would need to be 14 but a 13 in ride feels like a 14 burton to me.

Yeah, killclimbz uses them. They're stiff as fuck, that's for sure.

I generally like a stiff boot, but the Insanos are a bit too stiff even for my liking.

What do you guys typically ride on the mountain? Why do you like more flex in the boot?
I have 32 boa's and i crank those suckers all the way tight. I just hate the pressure points that these claim to eliminate.

i bought my to split in, i don't have a lot of options with my boot size. Not many retailers stock in the teens, actually not many even make boots in the teens. I am luck that ride and burton boots both fit me.
