Thanks for your generous time and service here.
I'm male, 43yo, level 7/8, in Technica Vento10 with custom footbeds.
My left ski does not sit flat. Inside edge gets more pressure, noticeable at flats and catwalks. One (left) foot skiing, I can only turn right. Turning with both feet, I feel the left ski overturn. Left turn initiation takes more effort than right turn.
Been to a reputable bootfitter in the area with marginal results, and I'm not sure if I agree with where he is going. Maybe someone can straighten out my logic. After all, he's certified and I'm not. Certification or not, engineer in me needs to understand.
To correct my pronated left foot and knee position, the bootfitter adjusted the footbed, effectively raising the inside edge. That's what got me confused - I thought the more pressure you have on the little toe, easier it is to turn left (for left foot). Now that the inside edge sits higher, would the inside have more pressure, making it more prone to turning right? Shouldn't he raise the outside edge so there is more pressure on the outside, making it easier to turn left? Sorry about all left/right terms. All above is regarding my left foot.
Also, when one-foot skiing with a truly neutral foot, how much 'symmetry' should you expect between left/right turns? One-foot skiing with my right foot, I can make sharp left turns, but only marginal right turns. Do I have issue with my right foot as well?
1. Basically, how do you make the ski flat with a pronated foot, and which side should be 'raised' using the footbed or the shim, if shim were used.
2. Shouldn't he raise the outside edge so there is more pressure on the outside, making it easier to turn left?
Thank you very much.
