I have been in a pair of Nordica Pro 130's for around four years now (26.5 - 9.5 street shoe). Liners are Zipfit World Cups with Aline inserts. The fit was very good, right out of the box. But I have had to do some work to get in a more neutral stance. I have 4mm shims that are integrated into the toe piece of my VIST bindings. And I have 3mm toe shims on the boots. I put an instaliner (?) shim in the tongue because I have chicken shins to go along with my very low volume feet. I took the rear spoiler out as well.
This setup has served me well, but it seems that my style of skiing has changed. Over the past two seasons, I have been broadening my terrain from fast groomers, to some off piste, trees and moguls . Been going out west for powder experiences as well. I find that the aggressive stance and stiffness of the Pro's is not as suitable for these more varied conditions. I get the feeling that I am too locked into an aggressive stance for these more mixed conditions. Quad issues as well - not from backseat driving either.
My thought is to either soften the Pro's and do something that can give me a more upright stance, or get into a different boot. Have been looking at the RS 110 from Lange that boasts a more natural stance wit a softer flex (me-175lbs). I have fit well into Technica's in the past. But the Nordica 97mm last has fit me like a dream, so I would be inclined to stay with that line. Other boots I should consider?
Thanks for the advice.
