fit problem with liberinte & targa

hey guys,

today i purchased 2010 ltd liberine boots



size 9

and i have the new rome targa 2011 with 2.5 canted




size l/xl


and i believe they are not a perfect fit, or i need somehow to customize the binding.

there is sort of a "gap" between back of the boot, to the the highback of the binding


is this ok? or any advice how to fix it?

so the back of the boot touches at the top of the high back, then going down from there a gap forms?

no, the back of the boot touches the low part of the high back, and in the end of the highback there is a gap.

hmm, have you tried strapping in on your board and leaning back. does your boot move independently or does everything move together?

Just making sure, but did you adjust the heel hoop to the size 9 setting?

Ya with that boot size you should have the heel cup in the forward most position, which may or may not fix your problem.

Also, I don't think the highback on my Targas are in contact with my boot for the entire length of the highback. It isn't really clear where your gap is, but it sounds like it is at the top of the highback. What forward lean are your highbacks at? It might just be that the angle built into the boots is greater than the default or whatever angle your highbacks are set.

Is the gap equal on both sides of the boot? If not rotating the highbacks could help too.
