    I just received a pair of the Proclines. First impressions are really good. The biggest difference that I can see between the TLT6 and Procline is that the walk/ Ski (snowboard) mode lever is dedicated. That means no more trashed inside cuffs from TLT’s upper buckle staying open while ascending. The walk mode is incredibly walkable too, much more movement that TLT6. I have not been out on them as my guiding season just ended and I needed some chill time, that and its really warm.
    In snowboard mode I have not done any mods…yet, but upon inspection I can see that it would be quite easy to create forward flex. However with the upper buckle being only a tightening buckle and not a switch for ski mode I have found that its pretty darn soft stock with the upper buckle being set loose. Anyways Ill tune in again with more once I ride them…

    By chance do you know the BSL for your size? Or, anyone seen specs anywhere? Wondering if they’ll be a good (compact, short) boot for big-footers.

    Mondo 28 TLT6 was a 307mm sole length and Procline 28.5 is 305mm. Didnt change my Phantom binding length.

    I would be interested to know if this boot is soft enough to use without being modified.

    I tried on the carbon version of this boot in the store yesterday.
    Definitely wider toe-box than my La sportiva siderals.
    I could not feel any of the upper cuff twisting ability.. Maybe the non carbon version is better..
    The toe-welt seems scaringly small for bail bindings and auto-crampon compatibility.

    My slightly modified siderals feels softer in all directions, and by far lighter.

    My thoughts..

    Thanks for your replies. Today I had the chance to play around with the Procline in the store. And your concerns are definitely true…

    I could not feel any of the upper cuff twisting ability.. Maybe the non carbon version is better..
    The toe-welt seems scaringly small for bail bindings and auto-crampon compatibility.

    a) If you lock the boot into ride mode, the lateral flex gets eliminated. I see no chance to change this behavior..
    b) The toe-welt is too small, I would never ride these boots with my Phantoms…:

    Damn! That’s a bummer! The points about not being flexible enough and locking out the lateral flex weren’t too bad, as I’d assumed the carbon cuff version would have been to stiff anyway, and I would have thought the walk mode flex would be too much to ride. I was looking forward to it for climbing purposes though.

    The small welt is a deal killer though it seems. Will be interested in what jvosburgh has to say on the matter, as he will no doubt have ridden them harder than most of us if he can get them to stay locked in to start with.

    Otherwise looks like another winter on fitwells 🙁 I was getting excited with these too. Maybe next year…

    @jvosburgh Any updates on the welt dimensions and riding with Phantoms?

    TIA

    I have seen these boots in person, and will be giving them a solid try in the coming weeks. I have access to nearly unlimited prototyping capabilities at KK, and I already have my modifications figured out. Once I have them modded I’ll let you guy know how well they flex for dynamic snowboarding.

    @russman Any updates you can share on the Procline? Also, can you provide context (i.e. have you ridden any other hard boots).
