suggestions on size UK10 boots similar to pre 2010 Nordica Dobermann WC150

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

I'm in 2007 nordica dobermann wc150 size UK9. i'm 6'1" 175lbs. the boot has been professionally modified, grinding only. great fit, i like the lace up liner. i'm looking for a replacement boot in size up (UK10) since my foot grew in last few years.

 

I've been looking into atomic redster, older atomic rt, head RD. how do these boots compare to the pre 2010 dobermann in thickness of the plastic around toes, liner material, heel pocket volume, instep.

 

any other boots i should look into?

any true race boot (95ish mm) should be similar.

 

race boots are made to fit NO-ONE,   thats what a boot fitters job is.    SO find a boot in the right size, and get a shop guy to start grinding again

I may add, I own a few Dobermann WC150/Aggressor plug boots, all ground by the same fitter.
 
I'm thinking of trying something else.

 

From my experience the Dobi WC150 plastic is very thick around the heel, toes, sides, but not so much around ankle bones.

 

Shell fit on 150 RT Ti feels good. lower instep which i like, but I never skied it.

 

I would like to know how does the Atomic RT Ti 150 compares in plastic thickness to a Dobi WC150 around the ankle bones, heel, toes, etc. Do Atomic boots have any abduction built in?

 

Do Atomic RT Ti come with cork liners similar to pre-2006/7 Dobi WC150 lines?

Can't comment on Atomic liners as I see very few if any of the boots, however, as Mtnlion said each companies WC boots are essentially the same.  Thick plastic everywhere and leather lace-up sock liners.

most true race boots are not available in a UK 10. the 325 boot sole length is where they stop and that shell is a UK 9. so if you are looking at nordica or tecnica they only go to UK 9 325 bsl

 

the atomic RT Ti is no longer being produced, obviously you have found one, so there are still some floating around (gone for 2 seasons now ) they have morphed that boot into the redster series. not a fun boot to modify the ankles on. they do make a 29.5 which has a 335 bsl

 

Fischer makes a 29.5, UK 10 with a 337 bsl in the vacuum 150 which is also abducted, but not easily grindable

 

lange and rossi make their 150 flex ZB/ZB in a 29.5 mondopoint which is a UK 10 337 bsl

 

head b2's only goes to 28,5 323 bsl

 

salomon x-lab 150 only goes to 28.5 325 bsl

Do Atomic RT Ti come with cork liners similar to pre-2006/7 Dobi WC150 lines? similar, but thinner and without as much cork material. they get very thin ,very fast.
