Rossignol Softscratch -- Does this make sense?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

I've been skiing a K2 T:Nine and these boots since new, and last year I started wiping out a good bit -- The ski guys on the mountain seemed to indicate that the ski's were likely too soft for my no-longer-college weight, and that i should try something a bit stiffer the next outing.

 

I skied a 176 Rossignol Experience 83 -- downside, it seems that my boots have become sloppy... the heel is able to move up and down, and its simply eroding my confidence. I find the boots comfortable, however if they don't hold me stable, I don't know if they are valid for me. I went to the on-mountain boot place again (All of this at Snowshoe, WV) and they told me that my boots are a 27.5, and that I should be wearing at 26.0.

 

Would the size issue not present itself with skis that were too soft, or does this sound like it is infact a size issue over a 'simply not the right boot for me' type issue. I've managed to find the exact boot in a 26.0, and i'm willing to try it unless somebody here can suggest otherwise. I've thought about using demo boots with the demos skis for my next outing and see how that goes.... but frankly I'm at a bit of a loss, so figure i'd ask here!

as you get a ski that performs better, you will start to see the other weeknesses in the system,   a 27 boot is for a mens 10+ shoe.  a 26 boot for a 9-10 mens  (I'm a 8-8.5 mens and ski a 25 boot usually,  sometimes a 24)

s might help as a starting point
