    I vote touring binders! They're fun and capable inbounds, but they are just unreal outside the ropes... You could go Shift and split the diff of course.

    If the Verticals weren't shimmed, I'd wager that was the problem. The ramp angle on Verticals causes (at least for me) the feelings you're describing.
