old (I think 09/10) Fischer Worldcup Pro - how to tell the Flex rating??

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I just got a new (old stock) Fischer Worldcup Pro boot. It's the plain yellow model, with the old non red buckles. Liner is the leather lace liner, with movable tongue...

However - how do i tell what Flex I got???

 

That boot is damn hard to Flex (I think I will have to cut down the lower part to gimme some softer flex) but there is no indicator on the shell on which flex it is.

On both upper and lower part there are markings:

Upper: Round thing with 1:1 2 3 4 5 and a marking at the 5. Besides it says WC.R 26.0-27.5 L

Lower: Round thing with 1:5 4 3 2 1 and a marking at the 5. Besides it says 26.5 WC.R

 

I think its a 2009/2010 model. I have found an old 2010/2011 catalog, and that one got the newer buckle shape already which mine doesn't. It's not the first yellow model either (I think 06-08 or 09) as I can remember the design to be different.

ups forgot to say. I didn't get the original box, so I cannot deduct any information from there. Also on the packaged information only the old basic information (without saying year model, or flex).

A picture might help. The Pro boots could be either a 130 or 150 flex in the 95 mm last or 110 to 130 flex in the 98 mm last. This should be written between the top two buckles.

Well it's the plain old yellow boot - 95mm last. The only indication is the round 1:1 2 3 4 5 indicators/compasses. Someone on another forum wrote me that

1:3 = 150

1:4 = 140

1:5 = 130

1:1 = 110

 

But I doubt it a bit why they would choose it that way. Also I don't think 140 has ever been available for the 95mm last...
