I'm currently skiing in 2010/11 Dalbello Axion 8. Bought them last year and have around 20 days or so on them. Boots are still fairly new, but they started to pack out and after some skiing, I feel that my legs are no longer being hold firmly inside the boots. I wanted to have custom footbeds (probably should have had them done when I was buying boots in the first place) done for a while now and maybe replace liners, but a couple of people I spoke with said that these boots are simply not worth upgrading. So is it possible at all to add footbeds and replace liners on these boots?
I'm planning to ski next 4 days at East Coast gathering. If I stop by a boot fitter at the end of first day, I can probably get 3 full days of skiing before calling it the end of the season (doubt that with current weather, I will be able to ski any additional days). Does it make sense to buy boots now or am I better off holding off until November?
And as far as boot fitters around Stowe, VT - is Inner Bootworks still the place to go to as far as having boots adjusted or to purchase new boots?
P.S. I know this is not suggested around here, but... someone on this forum is selling 2010/11 Dalbello Scorpion SF 130 boots in my size. I know Scorpions are narrower then Axion, but I wonder if overall they should fit more or less like Axion?
