Nordica Dobermann Aggressor 130 price?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
So I've been looking to buy some ski boots and my friend let me test run his pair of Nordica Dobermann Aggressor 130. The boots are in fairly good condition, just a few scuffs and scratches but nothing that would deduct from the performance. He's asking for $120.00. In 2013, is this a good deal for me? I'm a pretty aggressive free rider, and the boots are for me, but I just need an idea of whether or not I'm wasting money.

Good Deal/  Liners ok?  Straps good?  No obvious pinches etc?  Heel worn down?.  Nice boot.  Comfortable and customizeable.    Classic.  Offer him $100?

Other than the before mentioned scuffs and scratches, the straps and buckles all worked nicely when I took them out for a test. He said that the lowest he'd go was 120, but I can try and haggle him down to 110.

Have you done a shell fit to make sure they're the correct size?  Because that is the only way you can know for sure if the size is right.

Though I'm not 100% familiar with Shell Fitting, we are the same shoe and boot size, if that counts.

It may or may not count.  This will tell  you how to do a shell fit, http://www.epicski.com/a/boot-fitting-which-boot-will-work-for-me

Nordica Dobermann 130's are some serious ski boots that appeal to those wanting a boot that flexes very little. If it fits and is in good condition, I would not quibble over a few dollars as any other option would be a lot more expensive.  The caveat is that most buy a boot that is too big, and, that's why the check is to perform a shell check as stated above. You and your friend may have the same foot size, but foot width and shape of the leg can play a major role in getting the right fit. The shell check should feel that there is not much room in the boot when the liner is not in the boot. Another issue is that boot liners "pack out" over time and loosen up the tight feel, if the boot has the original liner, it may be approaching end of life. Aftermarket liners are available to restore correct fit, and, a good conditon Dobbie is worth the upgrade.

 

You did get to ski it, so, if you liked it, it feels tight in the heel hold down and it passes the shell fit, then buy it. You are not investing a lot of $$$.
