I use mondo, it works better as a starting point compared to us, eu and what ever else. The benefit is that the casual and recreationalist really don't know what nor how to get a performance fit. There are folks that irrationally expect a boot to fit perfectly right out of the box...and for a very few individuals it works. But for most of us, its a search for the holy grail. In fact after 19 years, I'm still finding and making improvements even with heat mouldable shells. Wired has helped and stoked a ton of folks. I look forward to what stoke and positive vibes that you bring to the flock.I agree on your every single word. Mondo is just an oversimplified and erroneous conversion chart right now for the snowboarding industry, but it gets you close. I really hope to see the day it becomes the standard that our boots are designed around, we're so much behind the skiing industry in that regard.
