I would probably go with the el mejor if I could find a pair, otherwise I think it’s the select TLS that would probably be the choice for me. Even just the team, sounds like they are a stiff medium, but can’t find anything in my size that’s not more than I want to spend..

the Select have the cloud 9 liners, witch is the main thing temping me to try the team std. i'm going to be traveling soon, and i'm planning a route to hit some shops on the way. I see Milo has a stock of boots i want to try on

new infuse is so good, shell volume has been reduced a bit too. i wouldn't spend the $400 on the baldface as it's just a tweaked taxwood boot. the extra $20 for the infuse is worth it

Do you have the old model and can tell whether the new ones are slimmer in the heel?

I have the old infuses in 25.5 and have yet to find a binding that really fits. Burton Cartel & Union Atlas in size S and Nitro Team/Team Pro, K2 Formula & Now Hangar 2.0 in size M are all too small in the heel loop so the boot gets pinched quite a bit.

 

@spenser Might be worth it to try on models with different liners. I had Venture Pros which fit really well (also this is Bryan Fox's boot). Tried on some El Mejors and they did not fit at all.

Look forward to trying the Longo Infuse at my local. Hopefully it fits my foot well.

is the fit in the toe box the same as last year’s Taxwood (on either the new Infuse or Taxwood)?

@picasso we don't have any from last year, my bad 🙁

@gd definitely worth trying on!

@coleslawed tough for me to say, i actually went from a 9.5 taxwood to a 9 infuse.. it's been awhile but it reminds me of the verse toebox kinda? wish i had more helpful information haha

@notmikebuckley Ah thanks for checking though! I'll just order a pair when they hit stores in Europe, along with Verses, Nitro Chase, K2 Holgate & Ortons... hoping that one them fits well!

I did the fit evaluation in Intuition Liner site, Today I received the reply via mail, but the suggested liner sounds a bit strange, to me...

They suggested me the Pro Tour liner. https://intuitionliners.com/shop/pro-tour/

"PRO TOUR liners are best for back-country, tele, and touring applications. A lace up, tongue style liner available in 3 Volumes: HV (High Volume, thickest), MV (Medium Volume), and LV (Low Volume, thinnest), to accommodate a range of shell fits. These dual-density, light weight liners feature a softer flexing lay-up, and a roomy toe box for maximum comfort on long tours. The strategic rear panel increases range of motion for tour-ability while the stiff upper cuff offers solid support and responsiveness, enhancing performance both ascending and descending."

 

I thought they would suggest a more standard Liner for snowboarding, like the Luxury: https://intuitionliners.com/shop/luxury/ or something similar.

Now I'm not sure if I'll go ahead with a Intuition liner because I'm a bit confused.

Maybe I just have to start with some basic liner modification, basically I only need to remove the heel lift, no special effects... mmm...

I was able to score some new Northwave Domains out of Quebec. I'm right proper chuffed.

The only visual difference I see is the pro tour has an articulation point on the backside and a bit more at the ankle, I'd surmise for more flex while touring. There's some different webbing above the toe box but idk wht that would be for. They don't very well explain their products and the differences, which leads me to believe there's not a lot of difference.

What boots do you have that you are trying to fit? 

Honestly, I don't think that Intuition Liners are all that. I think that they, like any other liner ( boot ) work well for certain people, but they aren't the universally great liner lot's of people think they are.  Just because they can be heat molded, doesn't mean they are great.

I have Salomon Hi-Fi.

the liners should be high quality... maybe I just can try some easy mods, like L pads, and things like that.

like those: https://www.tognar.com/boot-fitting-foam-ankle-wrap-pads-1-8-pr/

I never did it, but it should be not so difficult... no? 😶
