I have Krypton Pros with the Gold ID liner and booster strap. I have them set for approximately a flex of 125; gray tongue, # 8 wedge in the high position and #8 forward lean.
Is the only way to find out if it is too stiff to ski in them? Is there a rule of thumb on the distance of the flex or is this where a Campbell Balancer really comes into play?
In my basement I can flex them but not as easily as I could without the wedge in. I think the 125 boot flexed as much as the 100 boot. Changed one boot at a time to see the difference and left the Booster Strap loose so there weren't any other influences. The only difference was adding the wedge. I know it will be different on the mountain in the cold but there should be a way to at least get in the ball park.
I skied all last year with the flex at approximately 100. Half way through the year I got into racing and since the flex can be adjusted to 140 on these, I want to set them up more for racing (NASTAR and beer league) this year more than anything else.
I'm 5' 7" and currently 176# but usually closer to 170 or less during ski season. 49 y/o if it matters. I have strong legs and plenty of leverage from my belly.
Thanks for taking the time to help me with this.
