Hey Hot Ice, how did these boots pan out for you?

I'm thinking about going Salomon as well. Hows the flex, I want a medium flex, but some are saying these are stiff??

Thanks!

Chris

I've bought the F3.0 (size 11.5) a couple of weeks ago and love them.

They are definately stiffer than my Deeluxe Rough Diamond. I would rate them smth around 6 maybe 7/10.

How much do you weigh if you dont mind me asking?

I kind of wanted something around the 6 mark, because I'm a solid 185 and I feel like I can flex boots more easily then someone say 165.

I'm around 80kg which is like 175lbs if my converter is correct. I believe the F3.0s will be great for you. They really aren't that stiff. I'm using them for two weeks now and they still feel as good as on the first day. They might even soften up a little when time passes.

PS: I'm the same guy you are asking in this thread: http://www.snowboardingforum.com/boo...tml#post828098

Yea, I like them as well. They are still slightly tight on my feet, but not to bad. I think I would rate them about a 7 on stiffness as well. I love the adjustability they have and how quick you can get in and out of them. I weigh about 165 if that helps.

They lie. I have the F4.0s and that thing does not come out. Taken it to a few boot fitters and they were all surprised. I'm kind of annoyed by that.

Hard to advise on boots though. I had a problem with the instep and pinching the tendon on top of my foot, particularly when flexing the ankles. Had a boot fitter bend the tongue and it is much better now. No complaints about the wrap/lacing thing, but I've only taken them out twice.

Does anybody know where I can take a look at the different Salomon liners? I've searched the web and found nothing. I'm interested an the f3.0 or f4.0 for next season but I hate getting boots without ever seeing the liner. Too many unpleasant experiences with that in the past...

How are you expecting to get a picture of a non-removable liner? Do you want to see the inside? Or are you hoping that somebody has cut up a boot?

Yes, for the sake of helpfulness I was expecting at least five of you guys to cut up your boots...

Some companies offer drawings, graphics or some kind of visual representation of their liners so you can see how they're built. That's what I'm looking for.
