Just kidding... You will LOVE the 75's...! Unless you get the older ones with the orange laces or you do something stupid, they will last forever... Just take good care of them, install smiley plates if you plan heavy DH use and keep focusing on crushing that ball of foot... Sell those stinky cables, and buy a book on how to telemark with the money instead...
Exactly what I meant... Just like someone overloading 5000$ hi-fi speakers with a cheap Radio Shack amp, and then complaining to the hi-fi manufacturer and asking for his money back.
Enjoy the boots! At 84$ a pair, stock them while you can!

I see this as the primary boot to be used with my FT, except perhaps in piste.
Thanks for not talking me down!
Although I shouldn’t mention Johnny by name. If I bust these, I think it’s on me! Although, I have torqued the sole of my Ski March boot in mank. In mank/crud all bets are off!
The fish is a steelhead, or a lake run rainbow trout. It was delicious! The Great Lakes are a treasure everyone should behold! They are freshwater inland seas. Biologically they are greatly effected by oceanic shipping, and the opening of the upper lakes above Niagara to the ocean via locks. They do not have the variety of fish I have seen in my limited time on the ocean, but they are truly magnificent for what they are. I make the drive from an hour to 3 1/2 to 4 1/2 to Lake Superior as often as I can get away.
If you ever travel close enough, come visit one of these treasures. There are not many comparables on our beautiful planet!
