Some people are OK in smaller boots with our foot size re: NTN so you may be totally fine in the 30, but I just don't like it. Your mileage may vary. Telemarkdown Fey Bros have been lobbying me hard to go with a Crispi shell and a Scarpa liner, but I just like my T2's and money is a bit tight right now.Stephen wrote: ↑Fri Oct 08, 2021 1:43 amWow, lots of great comments here.
I hadn’t picked up on the size cutoff at 30 for the TX Pro — that IS a crime.
I think we have the same size feet (47 is it for me most of the time — I have no experience with mondo sizing).
Now, since I can’t have it, of course I want the TX Pro!
You left out the part about “in the Swiss Alps!”
Let me check with the wife on this vision of yours…
Weighing all the comments, I’m leaning towards:
Hype V6 BC / T2 / X2
The only question would be ski length for my ~ 195 all-up weight (178 or 183?)
I have really liked the freedom from concern for traction that the Objective BC has given me, and am fine with giving up some glide to get that.
Even though @lowangle al suggested T4, he has also said, and I’m paraphrasing, “go big.” Make a big jump from where you are to something new, so you really end up with something different. Along the line of @Woodserson’s T4s gathering dust.
I might still try and find a mondo 30 TX Pro to see if that would fit me, just out of curiosity, but I kind of doubt it.
Length wise: I have the V6 178 and 183. The 178 at 160lbs/180 all up is almost too short, but it's really nice here in East Coast trees if I get down and low. It is very compliant and maneuverable. I mount them -3cm from recommended. They have a forward mount otherwise.
