    I have an MTN jig, Jon, and looking at a Shift template on it adjusted for the same BSL (300mm) it looks like the boot center is about 10mm off.

    This happens with just about every Salomon binding I've ever owned; not a big deal if you know to use two hands to open the brakes to separate the skis. Time for a stone grind, BTW.

    Lange also uses the original Dynafit inserts, so yes. The ones I can think of that protrude beyond the perimeter of the sole are QuickStep, MasterStep, and some La Sportiva inserts that are flared at...

    QuickStep inserts are only used by Dynafit and Scarpa. Presumably Amer chose to test with boots they could access easily, i.e. Salomon and Atomic which have the original Dynafit inserts.

    The lateral elasticity spec of 47mm is the same for both toes, but that's the first time I've heard of upward release at the toepiece for either the Shift or STH/STH2.

    No mount is really that tricky, but these are a bit more involved than a standard alpine mount. The toe requires mounting a metal peg held in place with one screw and a plastic hanger held in place...

    It is a real issue if you own or work in a shop, as Salomon/Atomic/Armada MNC bindings will not be indemnified. If you ask a shop to mount a pair of Shifts and hand them a boot with QuickStep...

    There are three versions of "genuine" Dynafit inserts - the original (now used in most brands other than Dynafit, Scarpa, and La Sportiva), QuickStep, and MasterStep. The latter two have "ridges" to...

    Amer Sports contends that QuickStep inserts do not conform to the ISO 9523 standard. They don't necessarily affect the shape of the plastic toe welt, but protrude beyond the perimeter of the sole.

    Chances of them working "fine" are probably better than with a Tecton (binding heel engages the rear tech fitting) or Kingpin (rollers designed to work with an 8mm deep heel lug), but I don't think...

    You are saying the STH2 with sliding AFD skied better, right? Interesting that binding manufacturers insist on keeping static AFD's on their high DIN "performance" models . . .
