|Saint Alphonso||I'm rocking those DC Travis Rice boots. Love them. They fit great but I had to go up 1/2 size from what I normally wear. I have a size 11 and FYI they do not fit a medium burton cartel. Fit a large nice. I like stiff boots, though I wouldn't call the TR a 9. More like a 7 if you ask me but I weigh 195 so I may be flexing them more than others can. Boa is sweet. They are kind of hard to get into compared to other brands I've worn.|

I'm currently riding the Burton Hails and got a pretty good deal on a previous year model. I do like them for that type of riding. Have also hit a few jumps in the park with them so far.
I have always hated really stiff boots. The Hails are rated a 6 stiffness. I would not really ever want anything much stiffer than that myself. But I'm wondering why I still support Burton and recommend their products--first they moved all production overseas, now I'm looking for a new jacket and realize they also shut down my favorite snowboarding outerwear company ever (Special Blend) and couple of other cool companies.
