    Not a shop normally known for boot fitting, it will be interesting if you now go to Bumps and see Simon Bright, Bumps will have the same boot, and you will probably be offered a size smaller.

    yeh the guy put me in a 26.5 but i told him it was too big and asked for a 25.5. i actually quite liked the smaller one. He tried to tell me i was right at the bottom of the 26.5 size range, and if i was a really aggressive skier then he would put me a size down. THing is, i'd just finished telling him a pretty aggressive skier. I don't think he really listened much. But good to know it's a quality boot at least!!! Will def go talk to some of the people you suggested Paul. Thanks [img]smile.gif[/img]

    Not all chemicals are bad. Without chemicals such as hydrogen and oxygen, for example, there would be no way to make water, a vital ingredient in beer!

    You have to wonder, if the initial boot fitting is that bad, what would be your chances of the fitter being able to fix any problems that develop later.

    yeh i certainly didn't feel confident. Then after I asked to try on the 25.5 size he said to me, well it's easier to make a small boot bigger than a big boot smaller, so perhaps you should go with the small size... I just felt like laughing at him and walking out. He would have happily let me buy the 26.5.

    looked at it for 2 seconds and said ok.... go over there.... buy this boot in this size.... get the 23.. its the smallest size they make... if im wrong and they go smaller get it smaller but... otherwise get the 23..

    so i did... hehehe

    oh and the boots are great!

    threw out the original liners straight away and put intuition liners in.

    and he spent an hour adjusting the boot for me... cutting out chunks.. drilling holes... stretching bits.... gluing on foamy bits... hehe

    this guy is like a boot pro.

    maybe... im gonna work on it!
    the 07 lineup for burton has some pretty major new changes... ive got some boards and bindings on the way to try out so ill try to get some info up as sson as i can on how they ride etc...

    oh yeah my previous deleted post was about how i have the 06 cartel ltds, i rode them here last season and in japan this year. the heel gasket sucked here with the sticky snow but in the deep light pow of japan it was great espescially when hiking and strapping in as it stayed nice and clean, snow hardly ever got in there and if it did you could blow the snow out.
    the new 07 capstrap features gripfit which kind of goes under the toe aswell...dont know how that will work with non burton boots though as far as fit etc...ill check it out though
    ive got the stuff though,Im not sayingim a Pro but the 07 gear is out there for those who know how to get it! burton is already testing and developing 2008 gear!

    check out this from the burton R&D guys!

    5. What are some innovations for this season?

    Give me a second, because I have to think back. We are talking ’06 right? I am already on ’08. For ’06 we did some pretty cool things. One of my favorite was the new Escapade highback, which has a canted design that follows the angle of your leg when in its natural riding position. Think of the DaVinci painting of the Venturian Man. When you are standing on your board, you legs and board form a triangle. The idea behind of the canted highback is to have the highback follow angles created by your legs. It basically put the highback where it needs to be to provide the best contact and comfort.

    07 gear is out there, just hard to get. foxpuppet must have the hookups. I was at the Burton clinic yesterday. This is word direct from Burton... they will have 07 products at demo days this season. I think it was 24/25 June.

    That is good news but not smart for Burton, there is a high chance that customers will try an 07 board and like it, and may have been thinking of buying a new board this year, but will now hold of buying till the 07 product arrives next year, it would have been much smarter to demo the 07 product at the end of the season.
    Even better still follow what almost all other companies are doing, release the 07 product here now.

    If it's ready in 06, why not just call it 06, not 07?
