    What are peoples thoughts on using the new voile channel pucks on a DIY? Could these be used as an alternative to the square DIY pucks or the universal pucks? I like building DIY boards with the universal hole pattern so that stance angles can be adjusted but I prefer the idea of a solid puck. Would these be the best of both worlds?

    You don’t need the channel one just the normal cant voile pucks.

    The point of trying to use the channel puck would be to have a solid puck rather than the pucks you mention which have a rotating disc for stance angles.

    I dont think it will work with the standard hole layout.
    You wont be able to change the angle as the geometry won’t line up.
    If you want a fixed stance it will be OK

    It wont work with a universal hole pattern but you can use them for a fixed DIY setup. I ordered a set by mistake and I intend to use them on a fixed stance DIY in the future. The universals are supposed to be available now but I haven’t checked this morning.

    As a former hardboot carver I would state canting angles are overrated. And heel and toe lift ar often overlooked.
    For my solid board i use a flat lifterplate in the front. And a Burton unicant set at about 7degrees heel lift and 1degree canting in the rear. ( would run a unicant disc in the front to if I could find one)
    Angles that might sound weird, but that gives me very balanced highback pressure in heelside-turns. And it also gives my rear foot the full range of movement to follow the terrain and suck up bumps.
    On flat bindings i have to increase the forward angle of the highback to get balanced highback contact / pressure front – back.
    That restricts the rear foots range of motion. So when i get on my other boards with flat bindings i feel much more restricted.

    To get heel lift on a splitboard binding, a loose wedge can be placed in the binding under the heel of the rear foot when going down. Just remember to adjust the highback angle to..
