    It's heavier on the way up, and not as bombproof on the way down?

    Talked to Lars tonight. Issues has been supply chain issues from a specific company producing parts. The issue has been identified and rectified. Hopefully will start shipping second half of this week, which means I'll be free slave labor working to get bindings out.

    You are a fucking idiot. Weight on your feet your feet going up hill. You know, the weight that actually matters?

    How is there more weight on the feet with the Shifts? You don't lift the heel piece that is on the ski...

    Also: is CAST toe + FKS heel (weight on ski) lighter than the Shift?

    CAST toe + FKS heel is less weight then SHIFT.

    It's the whole weight on your feet is 4x harder to move then weight on your back.

    False, read the website again. It reduces touring weight by up to 1000 grams, it's not 1000 grams. I'll get a weight later this week for a reference.

    And, P18s weight 1250 grams, so take the toe off thr ski and the weight of the ski you are lifting every step is less then SHIFT.

    I helped out a little bit this weekend with assembly, it looked like all orders will be filled in time to ship Tuesday. I got my pair mounted up last night by the pros. Learned a few things from mounting to share. Have a jig drill the holes, as the accuracy of the toes need to be more gnats ass than mounting bindings alone. They prefer to heli-coil their bindings to their skis. It maybe a good option to fix any old holes that are a little off. I have gone without heli coils on most of the screws for now.
    Over all a really well thought out product, by some really good guys. They are already thinking steps ahead where to improve. I imagine everyone will enjoy them. If anything doesnít work out smoothly ask the group here, or Cast directly.

    Bruce, is the brake-holding mechanism in place? Also, have you seen what screws are used? Is it possible to mount CAST with quiver killer? I guess heel screws are exactly the same except for the additional one for bails. Are toe screws the same?

    As far as location goes quiver killers should work as it uses the same mounting pattern. I can not remember what kind of thread quiver killers use, but the heads are the same so you should be able to make it work.

    M5 screws go into quiver killers. Just make sure the heads work

    Youíre going to need custom qk screws to use quiver killers, the heads of the shoulder bolts for the toes are significantly different from standard binding screws. I donít know the exact specs but you could probably email them and figure out exactly what screws were used and find a qk replacement.
