    Posted: May/11/2012 at 5:27am
Firstly, I will be intending on using them close to every day for a whole season.

First thoughts:
-They both seem to be all mountain
-TM-Two less flex (more durable? won't get as sloppy?)
-Lashed are cheaper

I have tried both on in store and both were very comfy, but with the edge going to the TM-Two's because they are a bit tighter around the heel/achilles.

So in favour are the TM-Two's by a slight margin, can anyone swing it the other way?

Thanks in advanced

If the fit is better, or more comfortable with the Tm-two's then get them.
The TM-two is stiffer, so if you like more support from the stiffness then you'll prefer it.
and stiffness I mean side to side( so when on your board, stiffness from nose to tail)

Ahh thats odd, I thought it would be more stiff front to back rather then side to side. Interesting, would that type of stiffness encourage more pop?

Well, both models have articulating cuffs so they're not super stiff front to back, it reduces shell distortion, but also makes it a little less stiff.

Pop is all on the rider. it won't matter if your boots are stiff or soft.

I've owned both.  Went from 2009 Lashed to 2012 TM Two.  I'm more of a freeride-all mountain rider, and I agree with Jigkidd's statement that the TM Two is stiffer side to side.
The Lashed were great the first year and a bit but after that, it felt too soft for my liking.
Was getting weird pressure points on the side of my feet since they've packed out.  Stuck with them until I bought the TM Twos.
Paid more for them but my feet are happy now.  The boots stiffness overall was what my feet were looking for, but that was what I had in mind when I went searching for the next boots.
 
When I did try the 2012 Lashed though, I found it stiffer than my old 2009s, but that's how I felt, you may have felt differently.  If you're going to be riding as much as you say you will, you may want to factor in the fact that they'll pack out faster than the average persons.
 
If you buy it at a reputable store, they should let you buy whichever boot, and try it carpet boarding at home for about a week.  If it doesn't feel right, then you can usually exchange for the other.  It doesn't quantify how it'd feel on the slopes though, but at least you may get a better idea of which feels better.

I've owned TM-Two's before. If you like the fit, you could always loosen the inner ankle harness a bit and not lace the uppers so tight. That should give you more flex if you need it.
Nothing to it but to do it.
