Noticed you're selling the Spectres. Have you changed your view on these as a climbing ski boot?

Any further thoughts on them compared to the TLT6's

Hi Bryon,
I just purchased Dane's Spectres.

Obviously I haven't got them out on any frozen water of any sort yet but here are my first impressions.

Compared to my Nupstes, Spectres weigh 1-2 ounces more (slight variance between left and right) and are far lower volume than the Nupstes. I think if I take off a buckle and the power strap they would be even lighter than my Nupstes. They walk just as well, even though they are far stiffer and go up another inch on my calfs.

With a TLT6 your probably going to get a lighter boot, and it may fit you better , and have a little bit more walk mode range, but the Spectres are an excellent boot and can be found for cheaper.

Sorry missed the question. Spectre is good boot. Walks better than the TLT6 IMO and way less phaff with it to do so. Much much better inner boot. I use the Spectre inner full time now lift skiing and on multiday tours like the Haute Route in my tlt6. Best inner I have yet found for my own use.

The Spectre skis extremely well. As does the TLT6. Comes down to fit for me. TLT simply fits me better, so I use it more.

Enjoy the boots Jon! Funny how it works...everyone wants them after they have sold...only been available for what? Just 10 days or so ;-)
