    Man, the season turned quick.

    I just sent them an email about a 163 last night. Gregor said he would get back to me next week when he is in the office. I can post what I find out. You might get a quicker response emailing the address on their website though.

  • Yes., I do.

    I am waiting for Keffler to come up with something ideally. I do split ski in them at times, so there is some level of over built that makes me feel safer.

  • buell replied to the topic Phantom Single Angle Cleats in the forum Bindings 6 months ago

    Yes, the hooks are Phantom as well. I started a thread on those in the main forum.

    They hook together like Voiles, but they do not need to be, and in fact cannot be, rotated.

    permnation,

    Yes, you order a specific angle for your front foot and a specific angle for your back foot.

    Each set of two screws bolts down the top plate (I am sure John has a better name for it) that has the groove in it for the binding and the base plate that attaches to the board. The base plate is the same for all angles. If you wanted…[Read more]

    Phantom is getting rid of more metal! If you know the angles you want, anyway. 163 grams for my set of Solo, singe angle cleats compared to 276 grams for my set of adjustable cleats.

  • John said these Phantom hooks are close enough to production that I could post a few pics.

    The ‘almost production’ hooks are a very light 56 grams (this year’s K-clips are 97 grams). They are easily adjustable and provide a solid board connection without any clipping or any rotating!

    Thank you John.

  • Thanks Taylor. I love that such a simple mod works so well for you on that boot.

  • That is great.

    Taylor, does this mod allow more forward lean? Or is the gain in fore/aft range of motion coming from freeing the boot up going backwards (which sounds like what you are after anyway)?

    At my size, 140 pounds, I found the Aliens to have quite a bit too stiff forward flex for good riding without a modification allowing more/easier…[Read more]

    That makes more sense. New to splitting, but not new to the backcountry.

    I also ride on TLT6s, Phantoms, a Milligram, and a busted up knee.

    Good luck with the transition and the knee.

  • buell replied to the topic First time splitboarding in the forum Videos 6 months, 1 week ago

    Gorgeous first day. How did you end up on TLT6s, Phantoms and an Amplid Milligram straight off?

  • Scooby, I am curious, a GS snowboard, designed for faster course, has a lot more effective edge than an SL snowboard, designed for a slower course. Does that fit with what you are thinking?

    It is true that the stiffness would need to be different on the long and short effective edge boards, which it usually is. As you touch on, there are a lot…[Read more]

  • Jim, it is pretty far back in time now. This is the main reference I am finding at the moment. It is from Alpinecarving.com.

    “Burton Fish: For ’05, the 160 cm length had 40mm of taper, which was reduced to 30mm for ’06..”

    That would be a scary chute on the Fish! Glad you’ve moved on to a Spliff! ; )
