    quick question in the fks/pivot universe. mixing and matching toes and heels, from say 12 to 18, assuming your using a similar setting, say 12 on a pair of toes, and 12 on a pair of (12, 14 0r 18 heels) or heels / toes switched - all things should be equal: of course ignoring, lawyers, risk managers and wives. any thoughts to the contrary?

    ^ I wouldn't think twice, but then I'd probably be fine running metal Pivot toes with Soli STH heels, etc. For the record I'm not a disciple of the Pivot heel religion, but like the design of the toes.

    I vote YES, mix & match as much as you want. The FKS 12 heel seems to be exact same as FKS 18 heel, except DIN spring strength. The plastic toes for 12 & 14 are very different from the metal toes for 15 & 18, but all those toes are sold with heels that are identical (except DIN spring strength), so feel free to mix & match all those toes & heels.

    I've done that repair only once, and I had success dremeling a slot into it, which provided grip for a flathead screwdriver to unscrew it out. Other people recommend spinning it out using an Easy-Out/Screw extractor or reverse drill bit? See details at: https://www.tetongravity.com/forums/...ck-in-heel-arm

    Do you want my parts now? Or later after you successfully remove that broken-off arm?

    cleaning out the garage and just found 3 FKS 18 toe pieces and one heel piece that is missing a half moon. Hit me up if you need something and we will see what we can do.

    Also have a full set of Pivot 18 in great shape as well as a brand new never been used pair of Pivot 14.

    Lets make a deal
