I just went in to my local shop to have the bootfitter there assess my stance and adjust the cuff (he wanted to do this before drilling and plugging up the two unplugged holes). This is for HEAD Raptor 125 RS. I'm going back to pick these up in two hours.
Anyway, when adjusting cuff, he first loosened screw and had me flex... then when that didn't do anything, he completely unscrewed screw and TOOK OUT the ENTIRE white rivet thing (or whatever it is called). It is supposed to be just rotated. It happened before I could stop him.
I asked him if that could be done, and he said that the piece was designed to come out. He later realized that the things are supposed to just be adjusted, and did that. I hope he knew what he was doing. He then said that I must tighten the screws after first two days in boots or they may unscrew (this never happened with my other Raptors).
He took the cuff INWARD to accommodate my calf musculature which he said was initially "pressing up against" the inner boot cuff. He advised against canting until I could get custom footbeds (not happening due to $$$ at least right now)... I'm worried the inward cuff will compromise my carving.
Anyway, did taking out the white things damage/mess-up my boot?
