Positive Reviews:

To start, let it be noted that I did have these heat molded and wore them with Superfeet. That being said, you can do the same. Over my 3 seasons with this boot, I have nothing but good things to say. I already noted, super comfy. If you have any doubts about the BOA System, don't. It makes for a much more snug fit, and ultimately a more responsive boot. Never head an issue with the BOA.
These boots powered plenty of fat skis in their hay-day with me, so there was never any doubt in their ability to shred. On the flip side, I also have 100+ days touring in them. Yes, they're heavier than other touring boots, but I wasn't willing to sacrifice shredability for weight. The walk mode was great, full range of motion, never an issue on the skin track.
I've now put 3 solid seasons on these, and only now feel that perhaps they're a little worn, packed out, and softened up. So in my opinion, the durability is there as well.
In previous posts I have commented about how I've broken a lot of tele gear in my day, and to have a solid piece of gear that I can rely on in sticky situations helps my confidence tremendously when I'm going for it. These boots are another prime example!

I am light, 145 lbs. This boot is heavy, 9 lbs. I ski mostly backcountry, mostly in Wasatch powder. Shouldn't add up to me loving this boot, but it skis like nothing else. The fit out of the box was better than anything I have ever found in the tele world. Take the time to mold them and it gets better. Stiff, yup. But fear not on the fluff. You can ski easy and quick and light in the Custom. It takes extra energy to move these up the hill, but the skiing down is so, so superior. Some finicky elements that have me wondering what the designer was thinking (open second buckle in mitts or thick gloves? No chance) but the skiing quality is never questioned. Don't let the weight scare you. You will ski better, and have more fun, in this boot.

Finally replaced my 8 year old T1s with the Custom, and they are able to drive my mantras/AXLs with ease. I usually wear a 26.5 but went with the 26.0 because they were $300 cheaper. After some bootfitting, thermomolding, and heel wedges, they fit better, but my leader toe on my right foot falls asleep and gets cold faster than anything on the left if the temps are below 10F. Anyways, don't buy a size down because it's cheaper, but buy this boot if you want to really drive a stiff ski at high speeds and down the gnarliest east coast lift served terrain known to man!!!!!!1!!!!! \m/ \m/
PS: don't expect them to feel great on day 1, mine took about 7 days for the liner to fully break-in even after thermomolding. On about 25 days now, and they're still getting better

Got a chance to get in these boots and they are definitely a step up from the original. If I still skied 75 mm this would be my boot of choice. Honestly a really solid boot for those that like to ski fast on big stiff planks.
The first thing that you notice is the complete redo of the liner. It works a million times better for warmth, fit, and BOA use than the original. The boa was repositioned and I believe less of a BOA line to coil now too. The cuff flex on this boot matches the bellows flex.
It's a definite good choice for those that want to push themselves and have a boot that'll back them up. I really dig the white buckles too.

I have 15 days on these boots this season and so far they live up to my expectations. Lots of power. Ability to drive MegaWatts at speed in soft snow and BD Havoc on the hard pack. You have to match power with power so I have been skiing on BD01 RidStiff and Axel #4 settings. I had them custom molded with my foot beds and the ski performance was solid. The only downside to these boots has been that they run cold. Tolerable if I loosen all the buckles while skinning. Plan to get the toes stretched to improve warmth and fit. Will report back if this makes them any warmer.

Scarpa better step it up because BD has opened the proverbial can of whoop ass! The T Race is not even in the same ball park as these bad boys. All you need to do is slide into them and you can feel it. From the BOA system to the micro adjustments these boots are the Lamborghini of boots. Ill say it loud and proud I LOVE THESE BOOTS!!!!!!

Scarpa better step it up because BD just opened the can of proverbial whoop ass! I cant say enough about these boots. You can tell from just sliding your foot in the difference from any other boot. From ripping fast turns to big drops these bad boys deliver. Ill say loud and proud, I LOVE THERSE BOOTS!!!!

Very stiff. Very comfortable. If you ski low, even with the HH at #4, you will toe tip and lose your edge. Too bad, really nice boot. Going back to Scarpa!
