RTP vs Rear boot

All,

This might have been done before my time, but I was curious who used a RTP vs a Rear boot. And for those that use RTP, do you drag your free foot when coming out of the water, or put it in the ski?

Rear boot. Love the comfort and no heel movement.

Skied for years on a Basset Ski. (bet no one ever heard of that brand ) It replaced my Taperflex. They didn't even offer a rear boot when I was in my prime. Got up goofy footed, dragging my left foot till I was up. Now that I'm an ole man............got me one of those new fangled rear boots Took a while to get used to it....but I have to agree there is better control.

I would have been even more impressed if you used the rear boot and drug your foot...
