Fisher Vacuum - punch to start?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Been skiing a pair of demo Fisher Vacuums for the last month or so. They were 'molded' to my feet and we were pretty successful but after a bit still noticed toe box issues and as the warmer weather shows up I wanted to snug up #2 buckle.

 

I know that these boots have been previously molded to other skiers before but I'm not sure how many times - so I'm sure that if I decide to go this route a better fit will be achieved.

 

Wanted to ask those who work with the Vacuum boots. Is the intent of the vacuum system to take care of all the changes to the shell or is it intended to be used in conjunction with spot fixes (punching). I ask because even though we padded the toes for more space past experience has shown (to me anyway) that my feet tend to like a 'square' toe box but the result of the molding gave a 'larger' curved toe box.

Would you punch then mold or mold then punch?

 

Cheers

If needed at our shop we do spot fixes on vacuums. It all depends on the adjustment needed. The toe box in the vacuum series boots are narrower then other models of boots. You can spot fix the toe box if needed. The plastics on the vacuum boot have a very low heat tolerance. Be careful.... I highly recommend going to a shop that has experience working on Vacuum boots....
