The fact that pros don't need to worry about a boot breaking down because they can afford to buy or have boots bought for them but still have their boots drilled negates your entire point. And what pros or equipment managers do or have done to their gear is absolutely relevant. Where do you think the manufacturers go for input on new and recent developments that trickle down to us?
