Extremo In a size 10 boot always get the medium size. I'm a size 10 and the large flux hang off my board when I center the boot. I currently ride the M/L force and it's perfect. It could easily accomodate an 11 if the settings were maxed out.

oefdevilvet BTW, talked to a friend of mine and he recommended the Targa, or, the Flow NXT if you must have rear entry. Personally, I would not get a rear entry, because I'm paranoid and see too many potential fails.

oefdevilvet You wouldn't lose any control really, it would probably just be a little more forgiving in the turns, which you might want. But if you plan to charge down the hill you might want a stiffer boot, because a medium flex boot might not give you enough support at high speeds.

For your style of riding and your size, if you buy the Forces, get the M/L.

However, you brought up a good point with the flex rating, if you want more response, I would definitely look for a stiffer binding. If you want suggestions, Rome Targa, Ride El Hefe, Flow NXT(maybe, haven't tested myself), Flux DMCC(another I have not tested but heard good things about), I would also say stay away from Burton as their overall quality is uneven from year to year, and 4 people I know have had broken toe straps.

Anyone else here have suggestions?
hey thanks for the suggestions I greatly appreciate it, if i do get a stiffer binding, what are the issues associated with using a medium flex boot with it?

Hey there thanks for the reply. I have the k2 raider boa. My riding level is intermediate to advanced; i dont do park , i just like carving and bombing down the hill. Im now reconsidering the forces because it may not be stiff enough for me, i want something that can respond to quick turns and etc. maybe you could offer me some suggestions?
