Took 2 years to make the switch and it is great ! Should have done it before. I come from animal double boot. Some people say it take some getting use to ski with those boot, i felt right at home on my first ride. They feel weird when you have them in the water because they feel loose in a way but when you ski they hold great. I have a Radar Annex and i think my ski feels better with those boot. Anyway don't hesitate and make the switch they are a lot better than rubber ! Don't worry about the release at the end of my run i took the tip of my ski and pulled both liners released a lot easier than my rubber. Hope it helps those that are like me ...waited too long.
