My old, original Nordica Dobermann Pro 130's have served me very well. I like the way I ski in them. Their geometry works well for me. But...they're feeling a bit soft, the buckle bails show some rust inside the buckles (maybe weakening), and it's probably time for new boots--lots of hours in these. ZipFit liners are the best thing I've done for them with good support for my narrow heels & ankles. I'll re-use my footbeds. The 5th mets on both boots have been punched out, way out on the left.
I'm thinking about new Head Raptor 130RS or Nordica Dobermann EDT 130 (not WC). Size UK10. I'm 2+ hours from a good shop, so my best bet will be to get boots on an extended ski trip where I can get them adjusted nightly until they're right for me. Nordica lists the last as 98mm. Head's web site lists the boot volume as 1800 cc. (Why does Head do that?) The size conversion charts list several mondopoint sizes equal to Nordica's UK10 (why does Nordica do that?). 290mm = UK10?
Am I looking at two boots that seem like what I like? Similar geometry to my old Dobies?
Are the widths likely suitable for my narrow heel & ankle and medium forefoot?
Any others you could suggest that I should try on that are in the same vein?
