I saw them at Outdoor Retailer last Winter. Look pretty rad. Some cool innovation. Only time will tell if it pans out.

Super impressed with the Proclines. Just finished my third day on them today and they climb/skin better than any boot that I have owned and I am very impressed how well they ski. Really nicely designed and built. Can't wait to try ice climbing.

Dave I have only tried on the dead bird in store, but it did have more range of motion than my tlt6. It may be a better climbing boot than the 5

^ I have tried them on aswell and do not think they have more range of motion in walk mode than the tlt6's. I do think the tlts seam like they would ski better and climb about the same. I am sticking with the tlt6's. 7's Sean nice but lack a spot for bail style crampon in the front, are shorter and are only sold to a certain few store in the carbon model. Still think the tlt is hard to beat for an a/t boot that climbs and skis well for its weight.

I have only tried to put my feet in the TLT5 once (too narrow) have only skied the TLT6 once a few years so I am not qualified to compare ski performance. But, the Proclines felt they had more fore/aft range of motion, definitely more side to side ROM (easier win, no other ski boot has it) and doesn't have the stupid upper cuff-lean/lock one buckle combo of the TLTs so you can snug up the upper cuff while climbing without sacrificing ROM. I am pretty biased but I think the Proclines will prove to be tops in the ski boot climbing category. Time will tell how they rank as a ski boot.

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
