    Maybe discussed prior but I got some 125C AX recently. The liners kind of suck and feel pretty mushy. My old intuition wrap liners feel pretty off in them. They feel too far forward leaning and my toes are crushed (vs. them being perfect in my kryptons).

    Any thoughts on liners? More towards in bounds and down than touring and up. So for instance, not interested in the tour pros, etc.

    I actually too am trying to decide for my 130Cs, I'm between LV Dreamliner and Pro Wrap (why is there only one Wrap volume able to accommodate footbeds?). Can someone describe why you would choose Wrap over Tongue, or vice versa (I know Wrap will be a little stiffer than Tongue)?

    Either way, I'm going to order both with the intention of returning one, hoping the Pro Wrap works but worried it may take up too much volume in the leg.

    I like wrap on my AX120 and No issue touring or walking and power on the way down

    I need to go to Utah.
    Utah?
    Yeah, Utah. It's wedged in between Wyoming and Nevada. You've seen pictures of it, right?

    So after 15 years we finally made it to Utah.....


    Thanks BCSAR and POWMOW Ski Patrol for rescues

    Anyone size up with intuitions? The AX is 26.5 but with extra width I think I can get away with a size 9 low volume wrap. Wrong thread, JONG?

    ready for spring
    I tossed in a spoiler from an older model krypton today and the boots skied much better. Any tips for drilling through the carbon cuff on a 130c? Want to fix the spoiler in the right position but worried I will crack the cuff.

    Also, have you noticed any difference while touring? Does it snag?

    I bet you can. I got away with that in a Cochise 130 for years. Narrower last than the ax.

    Back to the thread -

    I have a pair of 2016 lupo TI. Love the color. Love the boot. OG tour wrap liner. I think I can get 1 or 2 more seasons out of it. Lupo pro HD look nice, but sticking to my guns for now. I have Franken-modded it a bit. I have a double layer kr2 pro shim at the rear cuff. Swapped the orange B tongue for black and did the margotron voile strap mod last year.

    I think I would prefer boosters. So I tried to put boosters on. With the voiles I had 3 screw in attachment points on the boot that a shop initially did for me when I upgraded from the stock strap to the Velcro pulley strap from Cochise 130s. Used the same 3 contact points with the voile straps last year.

    Today, i installed a booster strap on them. I over tightened one of the screws and sheared the head of it off. Now the body of the screw is in the threads and I have attempted to dremel in some purchase for a flat head and Iíve already scored the boot plastic without being able to retrieve the body of the screw.

    Here is the good boot with 3 screws:

    Note the slight scoring of the plastic.

    Basically I want to know if Iím good to ski with just 2 screw contact points on the booster or if I need to have the shop rig another attachment point for me.

    Or if the engineers want to suggest a procedure for salvaging it as is, Iíd also be interested in that.

    Who knows how to fix it? Or should I just ski them as is?

    I am assuming its just a t nut, with the liner removed you should be able to just punch it out. Two screws should be fine.
    a positive attitude will not solve all of your problems, but it may annoy enough people to make it worth the effort

    Yeah, take a picture of the back so we can. Otherwise I have a Dremel and a screw extractor bit you could use if needed.

    Alternately, I've run boosters without any fasteners without any real issues

    I run booster straps all the time with only two mounting points.
