I have been lurking for a while but I decided to finally register.
Level 3 skier (Canadian) ~7 or 8 PSIA rating??? [edit: 6'2", 180 lbs, reasonably athletic]
2010 Impact 8 cs with the cuff bolts from the Impact 10 cs, size 26, heat fit shell twice, heat fit liner 4 or 5 times.
Superfeet trim to fit footbed
Rossi Avenger 82 carbon 177, Salomon Shogun 182, Rossi Scratch BC 178(the yellow ones)
I know without seeing my feet this means little but - high instep, high arch, definitely some pronation but obviously this changes depending on what edge I am on in the turn. I have a very sensitive nerve at the highest part of my left foot (above 2nd cuneiform?) that literally can have no contact without pain, tongue has been reshaped, webbing above the tongue removed, padding compressed.
All of the To-Do s from the FAQ are being followed aside from that I use a slightly thicker sock if I ski a second or third day in a row.
I have been having issues with pain on the medial side of my ankles (bottom of the tibia). The boot fitter added large c-pads to the outside of the liners to redistribute the load. The pads wrapped about 270 degrees from vertical above my ankle to horizontal in front of my ankle (wrapped behind my ankle). This then needed to be trimmed because it was causing pain in front of my ankle (navicular and/or 1st cuneiforms???). This is not working so I need to go back and get them worked on again. I did a shell fit with and without the footbed and a lot of my weight is being borne (and painfully) by the tibia on a bulge of plastic beside the rivet in the clog/lower boot shell (any ankle and the boot are fighting very hard to occupy the same space).
For anybody that is familiar with this boot - How much plastic can be ground away just below and to the rear of the medial rivet/pivot? My guess is that I will need several mm removed before there is no contact (without the liner in the boot). Does this sound like too much removed material for the boot to take? Is there anything else that could be done in addition to grinding? I was told that they likley wouldn't be able to stretch the ankle out at that spot.
If there is anymore info anybody wants just let me know.
