Old course kx's worked new Tecnica dragons don't

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

My first pair of boots I ever tried/bought were some Rossignol course Kevlar kx's, when I was like 12. Well I'm 24 now and my last few times out my old boots just weren't doing it for me. When I was a teenager my calf's were smaller and the boots were awesome for me, now they just have way to many pressure points. So I went out and took my time tried on pretty much every boot the store had in my size to make sure I got the right one. I finally settled on some Tecnica Dragons, they seemed to fit me the best in the store... and they suck. I finally got to actually take them out to try them and my heel moves way way to much. Such a big difference from the store to the mountain. I don't feel like I am controlling the skis at all. So I guess my question is what to do now? What boots are similar to my old one, and I have a narrow heel so what boots work well with that. I know there is no substitution for trying a boot on, but it would be nice to have a starting place rather than wasting my time like I did on my last pair.

simple answer is find a boot fitter not a sales man, does the store guarantee the fit of the boots you have? is so take them back for an exchange or at very least some adjustment, if not well i guess you found the salesman, sorry to say e bay and start form scratch... read the wiki which boot will work for me at the top of the forum, it will give you an idea of what to look for
