Switching from Lange RS 110 to Fischer Ranger Pro 13?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Hi guys, 

 

Sorry for this long story below but hopefully it helps give context. I'm in Lange RS 110s in 27.5. They've been a great boot for me because of the heel pocket. I've had some issues since buying them: 

 

  • The boot is a 2010-2011 model. I must have put at least 270 days in that time but possibly more. 
  • The 27.5 boot with the default liner packed out within 15 days and was skiing loose, yet I needed to have the toe blown out... I switched to an Intuition liner, had the toe pushed out a bit and it fits great. (Going on ~200 days on the Intuition liner)
  • The boot feels too soft now. I'm a better skier skiing at higher speeds than when I bought it.

 

Ideally I'd get the RS130, but it's cost-prohibitive.  

 

I see the 2014 Fischer Ranger Pro 13 might be a good match. It's a vacuum fit, with a narrow last. I'd like to pay a local shop to vacuum fit them and do the boot work.  

 

Is this a comparable boot shape for a Lange foot or can it be vacuumed into the right shape? Would you recommend I get the 26.5 or the 27.5 based on my RS110 fit in a 27.5? I'm looking for a precision fit for racing and demonstrating precise movements for exams.

both are narrowish fits, but if the lange with intuition liners worked for you, I would stay on that direction

 

the Fischer makes a great boot (like everyone) but the molding is NOT magic

Thanks mntlion! I'll spend an extra $250 for the Langes, which will really save me $450 (the cost of the Fischers).

Actually I'll probably ski these current Langes until they break, then have a panic and rush to the bootfitter.
