Nordica Dobermann pro 110 or pro 130?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Ok,
In my quest for boots, which I will be needing within about a week (will have to patrol next week), I have come to nordica dobermann pro 110's and pro 130's, as they are at the local ski shop, for a reasonable price (to me, at least).

110's were on consignment for $150, in good shape. That pair was a little too large for me (9, but ski shop guy said nordicas are 1 size larger than they show, I didn't look for what the mondo size was, but wouldn't it be like). He said the same person is bringing in another pair of 110's, in 8.

What do you guys think of the pro 110's?

There were also pro 130's new for $370, but the ski shop guy thought they would be much too stiff for me.

get the ones that fit. a little tight is better than a little loose.

Ok. Thanks. I was just wondering if I got the 130s, if they would just be way too stiff for me, and I'd just hate them.

I'm not sure but I think that its much easier to soften a boot than to stiffen it up...

Naw, cutouts n such make them stiffer, plus you have booster straps as an option.

I think you may have that backwards--when you cut the shell it's generally to soften a boot.

I think the 130 is already cut when you get it though. I wouldn't count on cutting it very much. I think te real difference between the 110 and the 130 is a lower cuff on the 110.

Is moguls or jumping part of the equation?

Moguls- no, no moguls at the local ski area, and I would=teh fail in moguls if I tried
Jumping- yes, not much if any bigger stuff, mainly kickers and smaller jumps.

Either way, straps are always an option.

Get the proper fit. Speaking from firsthand experience, starting out with the wrong size is a mistake you that you will regret forever.

I've got the 130's and am quite happy with them and I don't think of myself as stiff boot type of guy.
