This fall I (healthy 21 yr. old) managed to splinter my tibia and fibula in my left leg and break my right ankle (LFF). Scary thing was that it wasn't a fall that caused the break. I was rounding 4 ball at 36-22 and my front left leg just gave out. Was it because i was pressing to far forward on the hard fiberglass tongue on my Fogmann Stealth release boots? I managed to get the fall on video so you can watch my left leg break under pressure in my offside turn causing me to fall where then i twisted and broke the right ankle clean. I would like to get back to skiing but i'm afraid to use the Fogmann boots again. The hard tongue on the front boot allows for excellent tip pressure but if the tip catches you can end up with a broken leg. Has anyone had experience mounting other hard shells or soft boots to the Fogmann plate set up? Should I ditch the set up completely? Will the white cuff reflex boots offer some forgiveness pushing forward to save your leg yet are still stiff enough to cause the Fogmann plate to release? I've always had good success in twisting falls with Fogmanns always releasing. Is it just a boot design flaw or is it the release mechanism. Anyone have any experience with OB4?
Anyone else break their Tib/Fib in their front leg skiing?
