We tested the Fling as Tecnica's "soft-flex and value" test entry. At an 80 flex in a 98mm last, it is one of very few women's boots to combine narrow fit with soft flex at a more palatable price-point. Testers thought it suited this target well—aspiring advanced skiers and lightweights with narrowish feet.

While testers loved how this boot performed on snow (amazingly quick and strong for an 80 flex they sais), a few had problems with a sharp and hard-feeling shin fit, which has also plagued big sister model, Crush, at previous tests. If the initial fit is even and comfortable along the tongue the abovementioned skier will love it, testers said.
