    Now it's time to upgrade my old Il Moro Fauxton aka the Not-Krypton (Il Moro with the stiffer Krypton liner...that I got from ol jdadour!) with that new Krypton TI. R11, Pivot/CAST, Krypton...damn. that'll be a killer resort/slack set-up.
    TEAM DALBELLO, MOUNT UP! That new Krypton Ti is a very very good CAST boot. Will work perfectly!

    This is my exact setup but I prefer to rock my Pro HD for dedicated tour days. Use the TI inbounds and if I do a sidecountry lap.

    My setup is Pro HDs, then I can swap on the full Krypton cuffs for a beefier setup. Provides a lot of versatility depending on which cuff you choose to use. My buddy and I rock the same setup now.

    Meter, getting the Pro HD gives you more versatility, then you throw on the cuff of the Il Moro on there, and you basically have a new Krypton TI.

    Has anyone ever had any issues with the posts loosening over time?

    They don't have to be very tight in order to do their job.

    For sure, just wondering if this is an issue as brought up by the cascade guy who is making the new plate.

    Just wondering if anyone who ordered during November (aka the second pre-order window) has received a shipping notification yet?

    Super stoked on these, installed them yesterday and got out for a quick little walk after getting 5 inches of snow in town.

    Are those 192s and if so how hard do you anticipate kick turns being on these?

    They are, mounted on the line.

    I did 2 or 3 today and they weren’t terrible but coming from 190 praxis BC mounted 1 CM forward so guess I’ve been well seasoned for maximum extension during kick turns.

    Might be a silly question but I'm not to keen on searching through 20+ pages for an answer but if I want to mount a CAST system on a prior Look Pivot mount, can I just use the same holes or should I install some helicoils for better retention?

    Using heli coils would be a good idea, but as long as you are careful not to strip the holes, you’ll be fine

    I just got finished remounting mine , after procrastinating for a year because they worked on the hill with the alpine toes in.
    The previous mount on the skis was unknown to me and i reused holes that left the two rear cast shoulder bolts on the toes a little tilted. I could get the look alpine toes clicked in but the slight tilt of those rear screws wouldnt allow the cast tech toes to mount.
    I pealed off all the cast toe mounts and filled the holes with g flex epoxy with chopped fibreglass. Then i redrilled the screw holes, then drilled them bigger for inserts. Then drilled bigger again for helicoils that the inserts screw into. That left a big enough hole to compensate and encompass the original offset of the holes. The helicoils with inserts in the middle are both epoxied in to the ski with 72 hr epoxy and the surface area of those helicoils should make things super solid. There's a fair bit of expansion pressure spreading out grabbing on to the ski as well. I think i read in hear that Lars and Silas use helicoils in their personal mounts for added purchase for the super human things they do on skis.
    Long story short. Yes you can

    Also big thanks to Thom for coaching me through my set up and for the suggestion to let the epoxy set up with the machine screws through the shoulder bolts with the tech toes in place for perfect alignment. After it set i went back and took the screws out and added the threadlocker between the machine screws and inserts. You may want to do something similar. Youre just using heli coils znd binding screws without adding inserts in the mix but you may want to throw the tech toes in place when you let the epoxy set so you'll have a perfect alignment. Just make sure you screw everything in and clean any excess epoxy begore you put the tech toe in place for alignment and the epoxy to set

    If yer gonna use the existing holes with helicoils, make sure those holes are precise. The tolerances for the toe pieces is incredibly low.

    Never thought about helicoils with inserts. Love that idea.

    Ya know ... I have only one pair of skis that isn't capable of ducking outside the ropes, and I'm wavering toward retrofitting a CAST setup on them. I can't think of a compelling reason to not not do so ... or at least pick up the kit (less binders) and stash it for future installation, so I don't spend that money on my other money sinks like guitars and other toys ;-)

    Another of those N + 1 situations. Nice to have if you have a use. Seems most hill have a sidestash that a CAST system will come in handy. After putting a few hundred days on my V1 cast system, on my gpo's , it was a no brainer. I probably only put the tech toes in 50ish days. The other days i never gave them a 2nd thought. The perfect on hill system. Itching to try these v2's now. I guess i tried them on my RX's but not on the BG's , still itchin
