I ski on Rossi Elite Pro 1 Carbon boots. There is a D shaped piece of plastic between the uppper and lower part of the boot. This piece is held in by a rivet. I am considering drilling out the rivet and removing the D shaped flex inhibitor to increase the range of motion on the boot so I can flex my ankles more for say very agressive short radius turns on steep pitches. The boots seem to block me into the back seat sometimes. It is not so much about softening the flex but getting more travel. Would removing the inhibitor compromise the boot's structural integrity in terms of making them too soft in the forward flex? How much softer would it make the forward flex. I'm 5'8" - 170 pounds and ski on Atomic Metron B-5, 162 cm. Also, what should I put in the rivet hole - silicone?
