How to get proflex bottoms back to normal flex?

I just picked up a cheap proflex and the bottoms are a little bent. I saw a post a while ago on boiling them, but i wasnt sure. Any help would be great. Thanks!

I tried the boil method with my Flexize, it didn't work. But the Proflex has a thicker rubber, so it might work.

That is what I did. Filled the pot around 3/4's, got it to boil, and then added my bottoms. Let them sit in there for around two minutes, pulled them out. Gave them 10-15 seconds to cool a bit, then tried to mold them. Even had some cardboard that was cut to give them the shape, added clamps to hold them.

Hang them off a doorknob overnight.
Always worked for me.
