    What sizes are you folks?

    The Carbon cuff & the C tongue are certainly stiffer than the Fiber & P tongue.

    I was thinking that the 120 clog / Cabon cuff / P tongue would be the way to go & if itís wicked low tide or Iím skiing with the wife (Masters National Super G champ), toss in the C tongue.

    Yes I asked the maggot who did the 130/Carbon/C combo & he spoke positively of the Fat Factory

I think that only when you have a solid/locked spine, then you would see more of an effect from a Booster.
    You feel this way about all 3 piece boots?

    It would seem to make sense. But I can tell a marked difference on snow. Go figure

    Tried on the 130 C. Those things are stupid stiff. Stiffer than some 130 flex alpine boots I reckon. For some big dudes, it's probably the boot you've been waiting for.

    Not a good match for my foot either. AX's would probably be worse. Didn't care for buckle/walk mode/removable tongue either, but I ski F1's a lot, which take about a second to transition. Going with Hawx XTD's to replace my Maestrale RS's.

    Nice decision. XTDs are sweet and the 130C is indeed stiff and has a fiddle factor. If you're like me, those latter things are pros

    I would've guessed that was the case with the tongues too (that they're different), wasn't sure. I think you should mod just one boot and A/B them together...then let us know. I'm perfectly happy in the 130 that I feel the carbon will only add in some 'harshness' while not really adding to performance...really have no idea. I suppose it might offer a touch more rearward support if caught backseat but the 'fibre' cuff is already stiff enough.

    Yeah, I'm not really sure. When I got the Lupo 130s last season I automatically put my Boosters on because thats what I've always done but then at the start of this season I was looking down at the boot while flexing indoors and noticed NO give/stretch in the Booster...which is its real purpose (stretch-rebound). It just makes sense to me since the Lupo cuff is NOT locked to the spine and you're only 'pushing' into the tongue that there is no/maybe VERY little stretch of the Booster.

    In an overlap boot where you're relying on the cuff/spine of the boot for stiffness, then there IS a noticable stretch-rebound of the Booster while flexing. I think there are some 3 piece boots that have bolts (whats the one bolt on the back of the Krypton for?) on the spine where you're getting the benefits of both the tongue and the spine for flex.

    I'll put one stock strap back on to see if I can feel a difference between the two. Some have mentioned already one benefit is you're able to get the Booster tighter than the stock as would be the case with the cam strap on the Factory...but negligible?

    I'm with ISBD, I deal with it but find the fiddle factor of the tongue annoying.

    I plan on doing the same since Iím fat too. I had KR pros for yrs. with some punches on the 6 toe theyíre 98mm. Hoping I wonít need to punch because the fatness. Whatever.

    The KR pros have the intuition ID overlap. Plan on putting them in to see how they fit. What are they since it sounds like they work well.

    Overlap, medium volume?

    Pretty happy so far with modifications on this boot.
    I have increase the ramp on the boot board with small heel wedge.
    Added a Booster Strap, though I am torn with how much this actually does other than keep things tight.
    Last but not least I put some Intuition FX Race liners in that I had on reserve.

    They feel more upright than my Tecnica Mach 1's but the Heel wedge and Liner (it has a thicker cuff) have increased it enough to where I am happy with it. The feel on chopped up snow is great.
    a positive attitude will not solve all of your problems, but it may annoy enough people to make it worth the effort
