The boots are Lange 120 Comp MF [dying to translate the MF
] with the lugs that can be changed out, so no grinding is required.
Just so happens that is the exact boot I was in when I tried it.
I am considereing a pir of Head RD96 right now. already very upright with lower ramp. hurts like hell to get out of. But it really puts me in a very
good fore/aft balance position. But eve then my bott guy thinks i should try + toes by about 3mm.
I have a wide forefoot hihhg instep &7 narrow lower leg, so we wil be doing a lot of grinding if i go this route. Still am going to try on Atomic CS & Atomic Rt TI XS, Technica diablo Plug plus the 130 & 150 dobie before I decide for sure. But currently leaning towards the Head 96 RD.
I was very impressed with the wrap of my skinny lower leg and the upright stance of the Head. Also my rihhgt foot is quite a bit shorter than my left. Right measures 26 left 27. One advantage to the Head is sole only 310mm in a 27 where the Atomic is 314mm, my existing Salomon X2 are 313mm in a 27 and Langes are maybe even bigger and Atomic Store stock are like 317 in a 27.
I have had a lot of trauma to my right leg and jhave experimented with canting to no avail inside thick or outside thick does not seem to work either way.
I am going to a rolfer in a coule of weeks to see if she can rolf me into alignment! Kinda scary.
I picture nurse rachet with a big rolling pin!
