The 2019/2020 Full Tilt Plush 6 was tested in the women’s All-Mountain Traditional wide category at Silver Mountain Resort by the experts at America's Best Bootfitters, powered by Masterfit.
You don’t have to be a park kid to appreciate the Plush 6—one of our ex collegiate racers and race-coach-turned-tester gave it a perfect score, saying, it won’t crush it in the race course but it’s great for everything else! Testers agreed that its three-piece construction combined with spiral wrapping Intuition liner made for best-of-test entry and exit as well as a sweetly cushioned, long-travel flex feel. While some found it a bit more forward leaning than most, all praised its quick handling edge to edge.
Short and tight with snug closure over the top of the foot and a means-business wrap on the lower leg shaft—testers were happier with the overall fit after full liner molding using toecaps and pre-padding prominences. After molding testers still called this an easy going medium—wide last status is achievable by going up a size and molding the liner, they said. Testers liked the molded feel of the thick liner underfoot—good shape adaptation for skiers without custom footbeds.
The Full Tilt M.O.—too forward and too soft for our testers. One of our custom testers swapped on a stiffer tongue (a #8 that comes stock on the men's Descendant) and was immediately impressed with the taller stance and firmer, more supportive flex. Lateral moves were consistent and easily engaged, but the Plush lacked the turn finish of narrow sister Soul.
There is an adjustable forward lean mechanism, but with limited range to straighten the cuff. There is a lateral cuff adjustment that could be tweaked for more edge power and the shock-absorbing bootboard could be swapped (via the spare parts order sheet) for a rigid one for a bit more power under foot.
