    DIY is cheaper and then you can do it for any binding.

    I'm not a plastics expert but if memory serves, HDPE sheet is what I used?

    I can buy small samples from a local plastics shop.

    Anyone tried replacing the T Drive piece with the non carbon version to soften the boot up? My shop recommended that and discouraged removing the top bolt, although the didn't really have a good reason why..

    Picked up a pair of used 2023 120 LV shells from fleabay and found an undisclosed punch, anyone know what temperature should be used to relax the punch back to the original position? I have a digital heat gun, and can dial it to any temperature. Thinking low and gradual.

    Confirm with a real boot fitter mag, but I'd do hot water.

    Scored a very good deal on an almost new pair of 2021 Mach1 130 LV and put three days on them last month. Excruciating the first day, not as bad second, and basically just numb feet on day three. Getting there, three more days and should be good.

    Even during the painful break in, they ski great on hot 65 degree Spring days, when a stiffer boot helps offset warm shell plastic.

    Iíve got a pair of 25.5 19/20 Mach1 LVs available for cheap if anyone wants them. Similar story to what 1000-oaks said, except my pain tolerance for my feet is too low to put up with how tight they are on me, specifically right on the ankle bones.

    They do ski noticeably stiffer than the Cochise on warm days, but Iíve moved all of my inbounds days to the new Cochise + ZipFit Gara HV and that seems to strike the middle ground between pain and skiing performance, at least in spring.

    Forgot to mention they're a lot harder to put on than 2017 Cochise 120. I have high insteps, and will need to shape a chunk of wood or something to hold the cuff wide open so I can use hands to try to spread the clog during foot insertion. Was actually concerned about breaking foot bones getting in.

    Mine compress my insteps and are a bit tight on sides of forefoot (even though feet are 94mm wide), in fact on two off-piste runs I forgot to buckle the boots and didn't even notice, lol. Probably would have noticed carving groomers, but didn't skiing hero corn.
