Short ver of a long story, if I don't supply the info that you may need for a answer please just drop a response and I will do my best.
I teach at a small hill in southern Ontario, have been for many years, hours on snow, cold feet etc. Over the years I have also have had issues with my back and pinched nerves radiating into the feet. Heaters have been added, shell and liner adjustments etc to work with my foot shape. I have a good relationship with the boot fitter. 3 seasons ago I changed from Lange FR120's to Dragon 120's mainly because of the need for more room over the instep - the Lange's had a very abrupt angle at where the boot meets between the 2 & 3rd buckle where as the Dragons have a larger radius at the point. I have a narrow heel, 103mm fore foot, low calf volume, and high arch.
My school director and other level 3's and 4's (CSIA) that I regularly ski with are working with me on tuning my skill (when time is available of course).
One comment that always comes out is the lack of ankle movement. Film show that my ankle never moves and that it is suggested that I need to have a more upright static position so that I'm more over the center of the ski and that I have room to 'press' forward' - as it is with my calf centered in the cuff my knee is forward of the toe box (27.5 boot) I'm 6-2 and measurements show a ankle bone to knee joint of 18 3/4".
I have removed the spoilers out of the back of the cuff (2 sets came with the boot one large, one small - I had been using the small ones)
Removing the spoilers hasn't really resulted in much change, can other adjustments be done to change this angle or is this a boot last thing and the only other way is a different boot?
Are there other brands etc that may fit somewhat like the Dragons but be a bit more upright in the static stance? My local carries Atomic, Lange, Fisher, Rossi.
I have yet to talk with the boot fitter.
Thanks for reading ..
