    This may be true with the same boot in both bindings, but important to note that some/many touring boots have higher heels (ie more boot board ramp angle) internally than alpine boots, so I...

    Another option could be to try the STH with a 5mm toe shim just to see how that changes things before drilling with Cast.

    Awesome points, thanks D!

  5. NERDING OUT- Mount Position, Cuff Angle, Binding Delta, and the like

    10-4!

    I look forward to being big enough to have the order volume to justify offering them in the future! Been thinking alot about this actually.

    Hey man! I don't think that anyone has tele on the R110 beta release skis. There are only 5 beta pairs, and of those with them, I am 99% sure they are all alpine.

    With that said, if you are...

    Yes, from the very end, not the cutout.
    I'd also say to just mount -0.5 or so from your R110's if you are digging those where they are.

    If they have the solid AFD (not the rubber roller nonsense) in particular, those should still be awesome bindings.

    Agreeing with the others. Imo Bamboo sidewall era was the best skiing (bc) of the bunch. The later pure3 blue ones were more like freeride 50/50 skis, IMO.

    Well, dammit, the bindings I put on there had play in the toe and felt pretty disconnected skiing as a result. It was hard to really get a good sense. Need to sub them out.

    Zero orders for 180 FR and 193 Rs, so I turned em off. If you really want a pair, I will swing it for you.

    yessir, I really wish there was more interest in the 17x-180 skis. I break even on a mold (ie don’t lose money) at 10 pair and a minimum order is 5 pair.
