The Eliminator (boot tongue insert)

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

To start, I have a thin build (5'10, 150 lbs) and my ankles are no exception.  Boot is a Fischer Soma Progressor 120 FWIW.  Shell is 25.5/293 mm for a 9.5 foot size.  Couldn't have gone any smaller.  Generally fits well.  When I tighten the top buckles of my boots to where I need to be, it's actually somewhat hard to shut them without my foot in the boot.  I find this strange as the bolt can still be moved over a notch but that's how it is.

 

I've only given them one test day so far but they really seem to do the trick.  Cheap ($20ish) and easy.  I now barely have to buckle the tops and I have a nice secure fit.  They also took out some of the bootpack as the bottom portion does curve around the tongue and go over your upper foot a bit.  As a result, I'm tightening the lower buckles one notch less than before.  I feel less presure but a tighter fit.

 

In some respects, I wondered if these would soften up the boot a bit and make it less reactive.  Foam compresses and one would think more foam would lead to a lower end boot feel (or lack of).  This hasn't been the case.  Maybe because the extra foam is somewhat firm and only in the front.  The sides could actually be a tighter fit.  Whatever the case, if you have a similar build/issues, you can't beat giving them a shot for the money.

Here you go:  www.masterfitenterprises.com

 

Same people that make the booster strap.  For some reason when you click on "the eliminator" under products it brings you to the wrong page but you can click a link from there.  Should be $29.95 (I was a bit low on the price above).

I got skinny calves and these made all the difference (in saloman Impact 10 boots)

 

Great product.

 

I put then inside the tongue (as opposed to velcroed to the outside of the tongue).  Which works better for me.
