In Oct '09 had my boots fitted. They said the boot was perfect for me, did custom insoles set the cuff angle and forward lean, and heel lifts for limited dorsiflexion and said I was good to go - i.e. nuetral.
March of '10 did the L1 Clinic and the Examiner said he thought I was over canted. Added duct tape to the outside edge of both bindings (1 deg worth) and it felt much better (could have been a placebo effect). I did get an "exceed" on skills so I'm thinking it was correct.
In Oct '10 got the base of my boots planed true and I told the boot fitters what the examiner noticed and along with planing & plates, they also put some shims here and there under my foot beds. Left foot got (what looks like) a 1 mil sheet under the entire foot bed and the right foot got a slightly thicker posting under the inboard bof.
Skied Saturday for the first time and along with being rusty, things seem odd; pivot slips were harder rotating right than left (skis would diverge) and going right was always easier for me.
Also noticed that when doing the drill where you lift the inside ski in a turn, I had a harder time lifting my right leg than my left. My right leg is stronger but this wasn't an issue last season and since then, they've always done the same workout. It didn't feel like a strenght issue but off balance.
I realize I'm giving a sample of one and I'm more than willing to keep at it to see if it was summer rust or is an issue; but is it possible, that I had been compensating for being over canted and now my boots are correct and I have to make adjustments in my skiing to account for this?
I'm also thinking it my be the plates on the boots. They are snug but if I press here or there on the plates, it will go it. Not a lot but it isn't solid.
Is there one think or another I should look at first in troubleshooting this down?
