    I talked to Eric Fey a couple weeks ago about this and he said next year - they might not roll out at ISPO and instead do a soft launch in the fall then a real launch in the winter. But I'll believe it when I see it.

    Seems crazy that Scarpa didn't produce a run or two of the last version of TX as a transition.

    Do we have any update on the mythical new Scarpa boot. I've been nursing a pair of old TX Pros through the last 3 years, but it's getting desperate, and I may have to just get a replacement pair.

I've never weighed my F1s, but they feel a LOT lighter than my TX when I pick them up, not just 1660-1580 = 80 grams lighter!
    True dat - misleading weights. I don't have original stock weights handy of either boot. Am guessing I eliminated about 200g of mass in the mods I made, but I also added some back with an additional instep strap. So a best guess, but no precision attached to it. What IS precise is the difference in weight between a modified F1 and a slightly modified TX. The stock TX is heavier than mine, but not by a lot.

    For me, the main point is now I have a boot half pound lighter with a much better walk mode than my TXs.

    size 26.0 for all.
    shell only, no liner.

    non-race F1 gen I = 1119 grams

    F3 = 1120 grams

    TXP = 1425 grams (~300 grams more than F1/3)

    T2X = 1286 grams

    Maestrale 2 = 1170 grams

    Here are the measured weights & cuff heights of all my 28.0 Scarpa boots with stock liner. Note that Dostie was using the very first generation F1, which was slightly different than what I weighed (the final bellow'd version).

    TX Pro: 1910g 12.6"
    TX: 1779g 12.6"
    T2X: 1600g 11.4"
    T2: 1629g 10.4" ('98-'99 iridescent blue)
    F3: 1554g 11.6"
    F1: 1342g 11.7" (final bellow'd version)
    F1 Race: 1190g 11.8" (no duckbutt/tongue/strap)
    F1 Carbon: 1003g 12.0"‚Äč

    Thanks! I was inspired by bobbytooslow's insight in another thread of using a heat gun to peal the tread off. That worked great. Mainly I wanted the tread there for protection from rocks - and the clean look . I had to grind down the lugs on top of the boltons with an orbital sander to make the boot sit flat (and so that they fit into my Lynx). I also filed down the upper (boot interface) side of the boltons quite a bit so that the duck butt wouldn't touch ground when flat. Filing the butt itself into a ramp also helped with that.

    I still have to cover up the t-nuts inside the boot and add jtb's bellow guards - then they will be ready to rock.

    I didn't bother trimming more from the f1 carbons as they are as minimal as I can imagine already. Makes sense to trim the regular f1s though - and 8oz is a lot of weight!

    CMBristlecone,

    Clean work indeed. I didn't bother capping the MBO-butt with tread. The exposed bolts become ice magnets when booting around in the snow, but usually they're in a binding, so it doesn't matter.

    On a side note, I modified a pair of 1st gen F1s and in the process, trimmed about 200g from them. A single modified F1 logs in at 1380g VS my TX at 1660g. That's a little more than 8 oz per foot.
