Pro The Edge is loaded with Inspector Gadget stuff, and it all works. If you set it up right, it'll provide comfort all day long. The stance and flex are spot-on. The fit, finish and hardware are first-rate. The foldout buckles close easily, while the moveable catches give the cuff a wide fit range. A scaled-down version of Head's Full Custom Chassis insert allows the user to reduce the extra-generous volume and adapt to many foot shapes. The Dream Thang 9 is a stepped-down version of the 10, which female testers loved in the AMC category. It sacrifices little from the top-of-the-line model, using softer plastic and a liner with fewer thermo-moldable spots. "It's very predictable," said Gleason. "It drove the ski through set-up snow with assurance." Con Lots of padding in 10.8 liner; will pack out over time. Top Scores Entry/Exit 3.7, Adjustability 3.5, Closure System 3.2
