    Why do your bindings? Cant your boots, it's much easier to swap skis down the road. They make ones for boots with rubber soles now too: http://cantology.com/

After skiing the stock liner I had pulled them out and replaced them with my old Intuition Power Wraps from my older boots. After talking to the rep he said he had some lackluster reviews from "bigger" users. Plus I was used to the original Intuition Power Wraps that are stiffer. The Panterra 130 comes with the original style Intuition liner in it.
    2- I got a crazy price on the 130 to make it cheaper than a 120, and the rep had my size in his truck.

    I plan to set them to the Soft setting which will make them a 120 flex.
    My Panterras are older and still came with the intuition wrap around liner. I really like the firmer flex setting on mine, perfect for me. Interesting you will use the 120 setting but I see your cost strategy and it of course makes perfect sense. Nice to get extra features for less.

    I was always a fan of the green, but those do loom nice.

    Here are my new boots purchased last season. Comes with two tongues, 110 or 130 flex with a tongue swap, and Hike mode. I love the boots, but had a hot spot on my shin with the liners where they wrapped and caused a seem to press on an old boot top break in my tibia.

    Intuition has quite a few different liners with various tongues now Scruffy...*although I need a well designed tongue to be comfortable. I have a dense AT liner I performed a tongue transplant(from downhill boot) on..might be laughed at but works great.

    Cool, thanks! I'll look into it. I was wondering if I could get a different ID liner with a different wrap pattern.
