Fischer Progressor 120 Boot

Posted

Pros: Easy exit and entry. Plush liner Lots of extras.

Cons: Flex is a bit less than other competitors.

I was looking for something in the same flex range as my Tecnica Agent 120's. I had issues with the 98 mm last on the Agents. Had quite a bit of work done with grinding and punching sections out, but was still dealing with circulation and pain in certain hot spots from abnormalties in my feet. (6th toe, bunions, etc)

 

In any event, I decided to give the Fischer Progressor 120 with the 100mm lasta try to see if that would help. The toe box is roomy, and the heel fit is tight. The liner comes with a a cork gel heel pad, which really helps lock the heel in. The liner is really plush, and comes with an aluminum fiber weave outer liner material.

 

Entry and exit is about as easy as I have ever experienced with an alpine boot. There is a canting adjustment, and the 4 buckle set up is micro adjustable. Comes with replaceable heel and toe pieces, as well as vibram gel foot board, which I really noticed when hiking or walking in the boots. These boots are very comfortable, and the fit is true to size.

 

In terms of on mountain performance, I am a bit disappointed with the flex rating. Fischer rates it as 120 in their boot lineup. However, I found while trying to drive my Dynastar XXL's in powder and on the steeps, that the boot tended to flex noticeably more than my Tecnica Agent 120's. It does have a even flex, just that it tight spots when you want to drive the tip of the ski, and put pressure on the tongue of the boot, it tends to wash out. Something, I will have to adjust to, as my Agent 120's were money in this dept. Might look into a booster strap to help firm up the flex a tad.

 

Although skiing on my Fischer Atua's, I didn't have issues with the flex. A stiffer ski might  be a bit too much for these boots. But I really like the all day comfort after the first two days in these boots. I am willing to give up a bit of top end performance for all day comfort, especially when it comes to a long 7 day ski vacation.

 

Boot also comes with a boot heater attachment.

 

So far I am impressed with the comfort and fit of this boot. I have had to have very little work other than a bit of foam over top of my right foot to take up a bit of space.
