Scarpa Matrix. It's this year's model of Laser. New Pebax or something, a slightly lighter build and doesn't have the "soft" setting, but is otherwise equivalent. I think most of the weight savings come from the thermofit liners.

I demoed Lasers last month before I bought the Matrix. I remember thinking that the Matrix had a softer flex. But I really can't say for sure because I haven't seen them side by side. And I'm probably mistaken because they're supposd to be equivalent...

One of the splitboarders out here also likes hard boots, but he uses the walk setting on one boot and the ski setting on on the other boot, when he's in descent mode.

hmmm...

We're getting in a number of boots to "test" pretty soon. I'm guessing that I'll ultimately end up in either Garmonts or Dynafits.

I need a fact checking department for my posts. Looks like the Matrix is a bit heavier than a Laser with thermo-fit liners.
