Hey Kristian. Yup, the 28.5 and 29 share the same shell. The liner did trim up a bit for the new model. The biggest difference is that the liner sits a bit lower around the front and both sides of your calf, yet maintains the same height in the back.
Hi. Looking for a new training boot in this weight class ~800 g What are the most narrow and low volume boot? The PDG or the the Syborg or other? The first gen TLT6 are ok for my foot, but a little too wide to be perfect.
Hey Erik, the PDG seems to feel a bit narrower in the forefoot than the Syborg does. However, the Syborg feels a bit narrower in the heel though. Why don't you fill out our Boot Fitter and we can talk a bit more in depth about the history of your boots and shape of you foot?
hey guys my TLT5s are actually 297 mm BSL not 287. So as far as i know they are size 27s. It looks like the BSL i want for PDG would be 299. Is that a 27.5/28 shell? it looks like a 27 in the PDG would be one size smaller. What size PDG do you recommend?
Hi Spindogg, aligning BSL isn't a great way to size a boot as it doesn't correlate well with internal length across models these days. Yes a 297 would be a 27 shell. It's possible you could get a performance fit in a 27 PDG since they are a bit wider. It might be short though, in which case you'd need a 27.5 and hope it isn't too sloppy. I'd give us a ring to walk through a shell fit on length with your current boots handy. 801-942-9084.
Hi, i'm looking to buy a light weight boot the old boots i'm skiing in are garmont mega-rides size 27.5, I wear a 10.5 in most shoes can you recommend a size in the dynafit pdg or the la sportiva syborg?
Looking at these as a new training boot. I am a perfect fit in La Sportiva Specter 25.5. My old boots for this purpose were Garmont Masterlites also a 25.5. I'd like room for a medium/ heavy sock for colder days (fit in my Specters but not the Masterlites). What do ya think? 25.5 or 26?
Hi Jason, ahh Masterlites! You should be good in the size 25.5 PDG.
Hi Jason, did you purchase the boots? in witch size? My girlfriend had TLT5s before and apparently there were 25.5 (in her Memory but she doesn't have them anymore), but we measured and her foot is 24cm long. She would like to buy the PDG but now she doesn't know what size to order now. What is your foot size?
I'm so out of date on boots and no one around here uses skimo boots. How does ski performance compare between these and the Scarpa F3s I am currently skiing? At the time the F3s were my best option for weight and performance, but I'm guessing that modern PDGs likely best the F3s in weight, hiking and downhill performance.
I'm contemplating these as my go to ski touring boot biased towards light and long. I grew up parallel turning on leather boots and cable tele bindings so I assume these are a massive step up.
Hi Aaron, weight and hiking is no question improved. Downhill performance might be tossup. What you lose from all the buckles and thicker liner is gained by lack of bellows and relatively stiff fiberglass cuff. Obviously a step up from leather :)
