Feedback on Fischer WC boots?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Has anyone tried the Fischer WC boots? I was considering ordering a pair for demo purposes, and was wondering how they skied in comparison to regular, non-adducted boots. I tried on the RC boot, and it felt roomier than my Raptor 120 RS. How is the fit of the narrower plug boot. Heluva, what do you think of yours?

At first I was worried about these boots being too roomy. They are slightly higher volume than the Raptor and the Dobermann despite being supposedly the same last width. The forefoot is a little wider but seems to be shorter (not as tall) as my Dobies. I kept the same shell size as my Dobies, but I think I could have gone down a size possibly. More than likely it would have required A LOT of work to downsize further, but I think the resulting fit would have been pretty snug. They do make a great tech boot - meaning they turn (carve) like crazy. I also have mine canted out 1 degree on each side to make them even more "edgy" so my opinion on their quickness is probably related to the canting. The boots also have a lot of forward lean in comparison to some others. Depending on how much ankle flexion you have this could be a good thing or a bad thing. I had the toe on mine raised so I was standing a bit more upright. I really like the strap setup on these. When you install a booster it will actually never touch the shell (sits above the shell on the tounge). These boots seem to suck off groomers but I don't know if it is the canting, or the stance. I plan to replace my Dobies next season with an Aggressor or a Raptor, but will be keeping these for slalom and other tech-type skiing. The way I have them set up has really improved my skiing.

This year I picked up a pair of WC 150. I bought them from a Fischer rep, they are the are a stiffer version of the WC 130 non-plug boot. I am guessing that HS is skiing the plug and you are looking at the non-plug version.

I have a pair of Head WC M103 that were replaced by the Fischers. At 230 to 240 lbs, I was looking for a stiffer boot. I had the boots punched to accommodate my wide foot, added Intuition Liners and a WC Booster. I have the boot set to the forward setting and have the spoilers installed. I have short thick strong legs.

I really like the boot. It is not as stiff as I thought/hoped, but maybe no retail boot is stiff enough for my weight. It is very quick and responsive.
