Sole Canting / Planing vs. cuff bolt "canting" adjustments

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

I was in a shop the other day where a guy was getting his boots aligned with the magic marker lines down the shins and the contraption with the plexi shims, etc.  

 

I overheard the tech say something that the canting adjustment that most boot manufacturers included from the upper to lower that shift the angle of the foot to the ankle won't solve a alignment problem with the lower leg.  Is this information correct?

The ankle adjustment on boots is misnamed "Canting" is would more correctly be called a leg alignment adjuster---canting occurs under the sole of the boot by planning the boot sole or installing cant shims under the binding to take the ski to a flat position and allow the leg to stand where it will.
