Elite SMB's VS. Classic Equice Legacy boots

Which do you pefer for barrel racing and why? I'm looking to buy a new set of boots but just don't know which I want. I have used the legacy boots before but not the SMB's. Just wanted to know y'all's opinion. Thank you. :)

I prefere my pro choice to my classic equine boots, they are thicker, and seem to form better to the horses leg.

My personal favorite is the Professional's Choice SMB 3

I like Classic for that little black piece on the back for my horse that clips just a littttle too much for comfort

The black piece is made of bulletproof material, which is a HUGE plus for me. I've had a lot of barrel horses over reach and my mare right now is really bad about it. She runs and turns way too hard.

Ask five people about boots, get five different answers. It is completely personal preference. Just remember, you get what you pay for. I like both pro choice and CE but right now I almost strictly use CE.

Never had a problem with them being bulky constricting the horse, in fact I like it, more padding when the horse gets rolling really hard.

Pssh.I didn't pick up the wrong lead
It's called a counter canter...
...A very advanced maneuver.

I prefer PC's (the ventech elites) for the support boots, and CE for bell boots.
