    I skied last season on WC 108 tours with shifts as a 50/50 setup and I thought they were great. I picked up some DWs this season and I do prefer them in the resort over my WCs, but I don’t hesitate...

    I don’t disagree with you. I just wanted to point out that the nubs won’t help in the situations where the boot is hitting the lever.
