duck feet - custom lugs ?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

I have an extreme duck feet. I'm using Fischer plug boots with slanted footbeds and extreme canting to work around it, but it's not enough. I always have problem with trying to force inside leg knee parallel to the outside and end up A-framing. I end up skiing on outside ski predominantly, since I can't get the inside to track properly. It really hampers my racing technique development.

 

I'm trying to find ways for additional correction to this. On 65mm waist race skis, mounting the bindings on angle is not really an option. I'm trying to get an Atomic race binding, which should allow me additional 3 degrees of adjustment, but I need more.

 

Ideally I'd like to get a boot with unmachined/oversized lugs and have my bootfitter adjust the lugs with extreme angle. We're trying to get our hands on unmachined 150 flex 92mm last Fischer Vacuum plug boots.

 

Does anybody here have any experience or advice on redoing the lugs for the extra duck angle ?

 

Thanks,

Paul

The aggressors seem to have slightly less angle than the Fischers, I need more. I'm really set on redoing the lugs somehow, but don't want to start cutting up boots haphazardly, especially a load bearing component of the boot

 

Also, I want to keep my balls of the feet centered as much as possible on the ski to keep big toe pressure on the inside edge, not in the middle of the ski !
