Shall I use new boots or stick with the old ones?

post #1 of 3

Hi Bears,

I would be grateful for your advice on the following-
I have bought a new pair of boots for free skiing. I liked them a lot and would also like to use them for my short slalom ski. However the new boots are half a size smaller than the old boot so the binding would need to be adjusted. My local shop would do it by bringing the heel piece forward while the toe piece will remain where it is now. That will onbviously put the new boot a little forward of the "correct position". We are talking about less than 1cm shift - do you think that would affect the performance/behaviour of the ski?

The ski in question is last season's Fischer Race WC SC (the one with 123mm tip - abbreviations are confusing...), length 155.

Will there be any noticable effects? - no diffrence? - "not even worth thinking about"?

Cheers
A.S.

Yes it would be noticeable, but not too much to worry about, imho; if you were too far back I would worry. You should be able to adapt.

Thanks, Ghost

Hmm... One other option I am thinking about is getting a foam liner for the old boot to achieve a more precise feedback.
