    Have technica firebirds that were cast-ified. About to get my salomon x-max 130's done.

    Lange XT3 pro

    And I also have a K2 Pinnacle 130 lower with a K2 spyne 130 cuff. This combo actually skis really good and is probably the stiffest flexing non-plug/cheater race boot out there. You could still source all the boots needed for this cheaply on ebay.

    Lupo c ti's. They ski great. I love cast but with the fiddle factor id prefer a boot that wasnt a toungue in/out design. A stiff comfy 2 buckle(including ski/walk/powerstrap) boot would be preferable. I should have got a hoji when i had the chance

    Hoji has a 9523/touring sole, right?

    So, no "authorized" AFDs for these.

    I'm sorely tempted to try fabricating AFD contact surfaces for my Zero Gs ... something I'll probably not ever do however ;-)

    Salomon X-Pro 120 with WTR sole blocks. No walk mode. Sadly doesn't seem to be an option any more. Will probably get a pair of Solly's reno'ed by the CAST crew next time around if I can't find a non walk mode boot with touring soles of some sort - that fits my feet.

    Lange XT 130 LVs with DIN soles. I've got 1st gen CAST setup, and the tech toe that came with them is definitely not the easiest to step into in one swift motion. Friend's G3s and Shifts are easier to just put the boot in and go, whereas I've got to put one pin in and slowly pull the lever up without putting too much weight on my toes. I assume this would be remedied by a thicker WTR or true AT sole, but it's not a big enough nuisance for me to bother with.

    I did use the liners out of my Recon Pros while I had them. Skied like a dream. Had to go back to the stock liner after blowing up 2 pairs of Recons this season.

    to answer your question, no, GW is not ISO 9523. 9523 soles are only compatible with MNC and tech binders.

    You should have kept the liners when you warrantied the shells
