    I increased the forward pressure a bit, so that the rear part of the metal hash lines up with the triangles. After a few hard days on them up here in the Canadian Rockies, I haven't had any...

    I have Salomon rockered soles with a low AFD height and so far *knock on wood* no issues with the AFD. For a little more weight I bet they could have made the adjustable AFD slide forward-backward...

    I definitely have wear on the boot heel ledge. I'm rocking QST 120's and I'm kinda bummed about the wear since I've only used it with Wardens...which I'd expect to work quite nicely together.

    Tecton can be had for $400 right now, I can't notice a difference between it and an alpine binding when I ski - save for the step-in process.

    Walking puts strain on your lower body but I'd rather not sit in a wheelchair. Each to their own though, feet are a very personal thing.

    People like different fitting everyday shoes. I wear 12s from Lems and I wear 26.5 Salomons. But my foot only measures 274mm. I like the "barefoot" style shoes. I swim in them but I like it like that.

    I think it may be the 2018-2019 S/Lab MTNs with a new color way. They also had black QST 118s.

    But I also thought they looked like the X-Alp until I saw the sole, much thicker.
