    Great boots and great price. I did the Haute Route in some TLT6Ps this year, light is right!

    The price is right.
    I ski my TLT5s everywhere. They are my resort kit.

    Please order boots that are too large by another full size next time! Great price.

    Right size, wrong weight... :evil:

    I debated a long time over keeping these, can't justify it.

    I share your non Dynafit foot. Like cracking macadamia nuts, trying to fit my foot into a Dynafit boot.

    These are great boots for ski mountaineering but not for people with wide feet (think aussie kid who spent their formative years on the beach in bare feet) it may be possible to do a punch job but these boots are very narrow to start with. Try before before you buy.

    You can put these boots into a Salomon custom shell oven and they stretch like nobody's business.

    And the guy who told me this is Chamonix's boot guru Jules who has signed thank you posters on his wall from just about every decent world cup skier from the last decade.

    Performance has the carbon fibre cuff. Less weight and a bit stiffer.

    And price. Surprisingly, the Performance isn't much lighter, Most difference in weight comes down to the CR vs CL liner. This example has the warmer CR liner. 1,202gr for one of the boots including tags, stickers and red insert seal on my kitchen scales.

    Be very careful doing this. Wont name names but recent experienced boot fitter used Salomon custom over on non Salomon boot and ended up with a pile of molten plastic. Well a slumped boot anywho!!!!

    Better than no bellows, just remove tongue.

    Seriously though, that is a fantastic price for these boots. A bargain waiting to be snapped up.
    Unfortunately I skied with my Scarpa TX NTN Tele boots in the full Dynafit binding a few weeks ago and they were great, so I can't justify these TLT's ( even though I just sold the Rossi BC 125's yesterday)

    Friend of mine is selling a used pair, size 30.5 on the "Gear Freak" FB page. Though they might be too big for you.

    Hello there, I'm keen to try these on due to above discussion re: them being on the skinnier side - also located in Melbourne - could we arrange to try/buy?
