There is no titanium in Titanal and any ski marketing group who calls is titanium is wrongly misleading the buyer.
    I believe I've read somewhere that Titanal is (almost) the same as 7068. I might be wrong though.

    Similar, it's a 7000 series aluminum with zinc, copper and magnesium (no titanium) with zirconium added. It's pricy because AMAG Rolling (Austria Metall AG) has a monopoly.

    back to boots.

    Was in chopstick shell fit for too long and other than big toes getting demolished the rest of the fit was sublime. Went size up as I just couldn't take it any more. I too wished I'd done it sooner as I don't know if I can even recognize a performance difference (maybe in another 100 days on the liners?) but the warmer toes was an added bonus.

    And obviously anything that contains rocket in the color name is the fastest. Only thing faster I believe is lil-rocket-Man Red.

    Speaking of colored plastic--which color makes the best helmet for shock absorption. And don't give me that red BS. That's exactly the wrong thing for a helmet.

    I'm an "advanced" skier, so worse than most here. 5"10 180lbs. Went from a 100 flex to 130 boot this year. I was worried at first, but the shop were confident putting me in the 130.

    Overall it's been a game changer. More stable and supportive in the rough stuff, on landings, and when I do fuck up. Can still flex them in a turn fine.

    So much better than 100s. My old boots allowed me to get forward a little more easily, but I think part of that was 15 degree forward lean, vs 12 in my new ones.

    Depends a bit on your anatomy, but more forward lean in a boot causes you to stick your butt out to compensate, so not forward really.

    I need to go to Utah.
    Utah?
    Yeah, Utah. It's wedged in between Wyoming and Nevada. You've seen pictures of it, right?

    So after 15 years we finally made it to Utah.....


    Thanks BCSAR and POWMOW Ski Patrol for rescues

    you could just change the binding delta and make it perfect.....

    again you shouldnt have to flex you boots to be in balance. There is no objective reason that boot has to flex to transfer power, and seeking power transfer IMO is doing it wrong. the reality is the ski and boot are pressing into you, and you are just resisting that force.

    So that's why you gave them to me

    90% of people buy boots that are too stiff

    Huh!

    Regular RS and RX liners are a little different but not all that significantly so - you don’t get laces/cork liner until you’re in the World Cup RS Z boots

    And according to lange website both current RS and RX 130s are “polyether dual core” shell and cuff (and switch to “polyurethane dual core” in rx120 and rs110)
