Fischer Soma RC4 WC 150 Boots

Posted

Pros: Responsive Smooth Flex

Cons: Hardware and Graphics

I bought these boots from a Fischer rep.  They are the same boot as the 130 flex, but the 150 was not available in the US.  They are not the plug boot.  I replaced the stock strap with a WC Booster and replaced the liner with an Intuition Plug Liner.

 

I am 240 lbs, 5 foot 9 inches tall, 46 years old, started skiing at 2.  I am a level 8 skier, previously a level 9 when I was younger and less fat.

 

I have a wide boot and had one boot punched.  The Intuition plug liner worked very well.

 

I am very happy with the way the boot skis.  It is very responsive and light with the Intuitions.  I do not find the 150 too stiff.  My boot history is Caber, Technica TNT, Technica ALU Comp, Head WC and now the Fischer's.  I can not vouch one way or the other as to the effectiveness of the SOMA system.  I also am not sure if punching the boot effects the offset.

 

Two problems.  The canting(shaft alignment) screw stripped and I drilled it out and replaced it with a screw and washers.  Doesn't look great, but it seems to work.  I ordered a replacement canting assembly through my local shop last year.  They lost the order.  I reordered it a month ago, and still have not received it.

 

Second, the lower part of the boot where the shell meets has a cheesy(IMO, yea I know I am old) chrome finish.  The finish/coating wore off in places.  I ended up stripping it all off.
