Hi All!
Deciding which rear boot to choose. I have significant heel lift (up to inch I think) when skiing.
Understand that it is not good, but this is what I have )). Rear boot that do not allow heel lift puts me on back leg.
For certain period skied in RTP but couple of crashes because of rear foot went out makes me go back to rear boot. Tryed heel cup+Rtp - did not like it. Also dit not like HRT. Currently ski in rear Vector
What do you think, Ballers?
Which one to chose - Wyley's or Venom? In Wiley's I see some extra rubber to make more room for foot. Venom does not have this option.
Thanks in advance!

    @OldboyII I’ve seen people using a rear Wiley’s with cut down overlays in order to have a looser fit and feeling and a better release in conjunction with a front Reflex.
    I have a new and a used rear Wiley and I had a new rear Venom with laces that I sold couple of weeks ago.
    Let me know if you are interested.

    Also, heel lift at some points is not a bad thing. It’s bad if your heel is lifted at all times during your pass. Watch the Maple video of his rear foot heel while running the course.
