    your link took me to a different post, here's the link to Dostie's video review: https://www.backcountrytalk.com/foru...304#post132304 on BC Talk and here it is on youtube:

I’m going to order a set of the redline springs and throw in new spring boxes, but this does seem like a short time for these bindings to wear out.
    This is all about the Meidjo? I don't think anyone has ever complained that Lynx feels too soft. Usually, it's the other direction.

    I have also read posts from folks who had the Lynx claw release from the boot because of snow packing while resort skiing, but I haven't experienced that.

    Hop also shared his impression of the new boots in that thread.

    Something unclear for the new user reviews that I’ve seen is the amount of time skiing, ie estimated vertical feet skied, especially if these boots change after a certain break-in period. 7 days nearly hot lapping Mt Lincoln chair, bell to bell, (basically most of my recent user days) will break-in a boot a lot more quickly than 7 days breaking trail on ski tours. I have a friend that just went through this with the current tx pros when transitioning from older t2’s; they went from this sucks to this is awesome after a handful of full resort days.

    That's actually a very good point, one that I and others probably overlooked when initially converting to NTN with Scarpa boots. Helps explain the challenges of those first days, apparently not just the bindings.

    Thanks Danno for clearing up my mess.

    Something I wish Dostie had included in his informative review video is a discussion of what bindings he tried & what activity level(s).

    My TX comps always felt soft to me (my resort boots are Evo WC’s), and on my stiffer/wider skis I could feel the boot shell flexing torsionally in the region between the heel and bellows — so that carbon reinforced zone in the new tx pro is just what I’m looking for.
    Know of a pair of Fischer Ranger 107Ti 189s (new or used) for sale? PM me.

    I always see more tele skiers in-bounds early and late season.

    Thx. And I stand corrected. I know of two who have complained online that Lynx felt too loose or soft. I have a relatively small data set of ~15-20 others who would strongly disagree with that.

    Not much. Just debating the end of telemark skiing and discussing gear minutia. You know, the usual.

    New boots = return tele for at least one full season. Gotta support those who are still investing in the tele community.

    No, I just put my name on the pre-order list. Funds exchange when product is available

    I also pre-ordered at the closest tele shop to where I live. There's some genuine concern about supply of boots for next year. It's a guessing game on how big the wave of new orders will be for the new boot

    Customer pre-orders can help scarpa understand the demand if communication is good between retailers, reps, and scarpa.

    these are telemarkers, they usually communicate in grunts to find out if anyone brought a spare lighter
