Dolomite Pro Z 110 - Boot Review - Page 2

post #31 of 35

boot spreader?

hi there all you fellow ski junkies
here comes another ski season finally
good snowy forecast in BC this coming week. i might have to go get myself some skiing (bleak prospects in the east so far)

yeah but.........let's get to the point:

the guys at surefoot in killington have a HYDRAULIC SPREADER. it sure would make getting in and out ---------- especially out, when the boots (proz110's) are cold --------- a LOT easier, no?

anybody use one of these things?

cheers

I've never heard of one, let alone seen one. But my trick for getting cold ski boots off is to carry a hair dryer. Blast 'em for a minute or so and they'll slip right off.

There was a thread over in Ski Gear about making your own out of a 10ton hydraulic ram and a 5-20 ton hand pump, IIRC it was centered around a massively discounted harbor freight unit like this one. or this one.

Not needed with the ProZ, IMHO, though I have yet to ski them at temps below 15F. (And not sure I plan to, use the Rage Pros instead).

thx comprex

.....for those spreader links. i'm definitely going to get something along these lines. being an easterner i ski frequently in 0degF or less. and my pro z's are extremely downsized.

$99. what a steal. and what fun to see the stunned faces on folks when i whip it out

Comprex I have a 16 year old daughter who is  a size 8 women's shoe. I am thinking of checking out a used Dolomite ski boot which is supposed to fit a size 7-7.5 woman. If I get her to try it on, how will I know if it is the right fit with no expert to guide me? Sounds like it may be tight but that could be ok.
