    The X Max was among the lowest, they raised the instep on the S/Max so it is pretty average now, but it heat molds really well with some foam over...

    I would guess they will produce an LV Concept once they get the LV molds with T-Drive going - wasatchback may know.

    Cramps are probably a result of excessive instep pressure and/or poor fitting footbeds. An LV last will be 1-2mm lower over the instep, but overall...

    I define "progressive" as softer at the top (first 5-10 degrees) and getting steadily (progressing) stiffer the further you get into it - if you go...

    Your foot is much too narrow to be in either of those 100mm boots (my foot is 26.77 long and 117mm wide, and I'm in a 26.5 XT3 LV). The only real...

    Go 130, none of them (with the possible exception of the S/Max Carbon) are really that stiff. Go with a 97mm or 98mm last, none of them is really...

    Good points, Golden. FWIW, I don't touch the back 3 inches of the bootboard when I grind it, just the middle section. Make sure you are cooking...

    See post #76 above, assuming by "hybrid" you mean a touring capable boot that skis more or less like a dedicated alpine boot?

    Try to clamp your sander down; you want to use 2 hands on the bootboard to get smooth results and not have it take off across the room.

    The advantage of going to a 25.5 is the boot is 2mm narrower and the instep is probably 1mm lower; if you can make it work for length, great. The...
