I have a pair of tecnica dragon 100 boots I purchased a few years ago at Larry's bootfitting in boulder. When I purchased them I was wearing my boots to work 4 days a week, so the shell is about a half size bigger than a full on performance fit would be, However I have never had issues with my feet being loose in the boot, but they could be tighter. The main problem I have with the liner right now is that the cuff is completely packed out. I have to crank the top buckles all the way up to the 4th buckle, they were tight at the 2nd when I first bought them. Also I have had terrible shin bang in them every time I go in the park. The boots are also not as stiff as I would like them to be, maybe thats from the liners wearing out, or that my skiing has improved and I am flexing the boot much harder than I did before.
I am looking at the intuition powerwrap liners as they are their stiffest liner. Will this stiffness actually increase the force I can put on a ski, or will they just make the boot feel stiffer?
Which volume should I go for, my boots fit well, but now that I only wear them while skiing it wouldn't hurt to have a little more space taken out of them.
Info, 190 lbs, 5'11", level 8? (advanced)
I ski everything, groomers with gs sticks, bumps, park, and powder if it ever shows up. I am charging most of the time when I do get to ski, which is only 1-2 times a week due to school and a "real" job on the mountain.
