Swandog7Alright so, last season I bought of FT classic 26.5 which I was fit for by a fitter, however, I bought them a little big hoping to grow into then which was a mistake, and I just took then to water ramping which fucked the liner in them which will possibly need to be replaced for next season. What I'm thinking is, is it possible to buy a 25.5 liner and fill the shell so the liner fits into the shell properly? I'd hate to have to buy new boots again and remount my skis. Anything helps
onenerdykidSorry for the delay, it's summer :)
As mentioned, a larger liner will do a better job of filling the space in the shell. A smaller liner will just slide around and it won't match the height of the cuff (a liner that is too low is more of a problem than a liner that is too big).
Now, there are tons of different styles of Intuition liners. Some are thinner, some are thicker, some are stiffer, some are softer. I would sit down with your fitter and find the right thickness for your foot, rather than simply buy a larger size of what you have. While that can work, it can also wrinkle, depending on how thick/thin the foam is.
Long story short: have your fitter examine just how much volume you need to take up. Chances are a thicker Intuition liner might work better than an upsized one.
