Hi Folks, looking for a bit of advice
Two seasons I got a pair of nice new shiny boots, Tecnica Cochise 110's,
Lovely pair of boots, reasonably light, all day comfort and walk mode.
Only problem is that it felt like I was being pushed over the back of the ski's all the time, I couldn't get centred.
Ski's are K2 Hardsides with Marker Barons. Old boots were Lange CRL FR80's ( no problems with that combination)
I was thinking the fact the old boots were a lot softer was allowing me a lot more forward flex, new boots by comparison felt like pushing into a brick wall.
So I spent a bit of time in my local Snowdome (not a lot of mountains around me) playing around with shims, foam, heel lifts and clipping variations doing a bit of diy boot fitting.....yes I know.
Between two visits I took a bit of material off the cuff bottom edges to get a more progressive flex, which seemed to improve things but the basic issue didn't go away.
The eureka moment was this weekend when I tried packing under the heel binding. At 6mm things clicked and I was back to my old self.
My question is what to do now?
6mm seems like a hell of a lot to jack up the binding and if I just shim up the biding what happens if I try to use another pair of skis.
Is there a bigger issue here I should be trying to do something about rather than just curing a symptom?
Any advice appreciated
