Descent so far
After eight or so moderate days touring (4000 - 7000 ft) in these I'd call them so so. Iv'e skied all conditions but mostly pow and corn. My previous boot was 28.5 Titan UL which I skied till they were dead. Beasts are significantly lighter and perform about the same (pretty well for a touring boot) which is good because that's why I bought them. They cuff rotation is about the same. They are too fiddly though. The buckles require more force than I am used to in order to get the boots tight and the weird hinge thing on the upper buckles is a pain. They are kinda hard to get out of. Maybe the most annoying is the ski/ walk mode engagement lever - when I switch into ski mode I have to manage the pant leg cuff so it doesn't get caught. Doesn't sound that bad and it's not really, but days with a lot of transitions have me wanting my old boots back or something else.
I get a lot of snow in the lower overlap when touring with those buckles loose - so I end up keeping them buckled when breaking trail which ends up limiting the range of motion. They are reasonably light but the stride is just OK.
2 Broken buckles. I'm over it.
