    I can't speak for others, but it's because every boot is different that I'm interested in pin heights. I can translate it directly to both delta and stack height - having no interest in someone's...

    I've thought about this a bit. Gone are the days when you can carry a single Dynafit spare and know that you can field repair all of the bindings used in your group.

    Thanks. Those are the numbers everyone's interested in. The differential from Vipec & Tecton.

    I did the same thing with my Maestrales (L-pads, etc.).

    Last Spring, I pressed my Scarpa / Intuitions which were molded for the Maestrales (but only skied 8 -10 days) into service for the Z-Gs.
