"Damn I could climb pretty hard in these!"
And I was right.
"Wow! Really nice LWT ski boot!"
And indeed they are, even better as a ski boot than I ever expected!
No question some user over lap in these two boots. But I still think my first impressions defines both boots for its best use. Happy that I am lucky enough to have booth. Hate to have to choose between them. I have been really happy with the TLT5 as a climbing boot, even though it was never designed as a technical climbing boot. The TLT6 is without a doubt a ski boot first and foremost by design. And it will still climb reasonably well on alpine and technical ice.
Much as I hate to admit it.....if I had to choose only one? The 6 would be THE boot. For the 6's added ability on skis..I could suffer some if required to climb in them.
I will say it again, it is a shame they do not make them in a 31.0 mondo. Why are Europeans so small?
Do you think retrofitting a TLT6 lower buckled onto a TLT5 would be possible? Both of my TLT5 buckles are hosed after 100 days of used.
I'd call Dynafit and get an RA#. The boots have a 2 year warrenty.
Easy to replace the buckles if you have the parts and rivet machine. Buckles on the last generation of TLT5s were a lot better than the first generation buckles. One of the things I noticed have boots from both ends of the TLT5 production run.
