In short, you have these options:
- any type of carving binding (with bails) mounted on a voile slider plate or a spark baseplate, that slide onto your pucks.
- voile mountain plates on voile slider plates.
- Phantom splitboard binding, if you can get them. Recently the second production run was shipped out, so a good bet is to look out for a second hand set from last years first run.
- Firstlight hardboot bindings

I would also add that it looks like Spark will have a hardboot binding option next year, see 2015 Gear thread

Cheers

Chris, maybe I am dense, but I cannot find any info on this Spark hard boot? What page in the 2015 gear thread?

Sorry, edited my post to reflect "binding" on Page 11 of that thread.

Understood, this is the binding I asked Will to make three years ago, of well, too little too late for Spark RnD.

I too asked Will and they were not interested, I also asked Voile!
In the end I made my own, sometimes its the only way.
Looking at the design its got some nice concepts but I'm unsure how the front of the Tesla system lifts up if the bail is there?
I have made a few HB protos and from now on will leave my designs off line as to not let the ideas out!

Yup, that is how we got Phantoms, necessity is the mother of invention. I am very happy now, as the Phantom interface is miles better than pucks. I really have no interest at all in Will's plate binding now, I am not sure if it really includes the touring portion of the Tesla interface? I expect that anyone serious about hard boot splitboarding is going to be using Tech toe pieces anyway.

Exactly right
The base plate appears to be different to the Tesla
No touring parts as you can't tour with a base plate anyway due to boot length and the front bail attachment plates are screwed in!+
not a straight swap as one would have thought

See differences here

Looks to have the lever concept of the Tesla without the pins.

Being able to use a common, affordable, non-proprietary interface for hard and soft boots is quite practical. Bear in mind not all of us are full time hardbooters, have our own shop equipment, have a fuck ton of liquid cash and time to tinker, and not everyone is obsessed with specs and tolerances. TETO :twocents:

BTW Sparks accompanying marketing blurb about the Dyno binders indicates they intend it to match with Dynafit toes and that they will continue selling them.

Guys, I've seen pictures in this forum of users giving advice on how to cut the cuff down to improve medial flex.
Couldn't find them in this thread,
can you help me out?

Thanks a lot!

EDIT: found it in the TLT6 thread.

I had been using hardboots (Raichle SB413 w/ BTS) for carving groomers and softboots for powder/all mountain. I don’t splitboard, yet. Thanks to Buell, I followed his link from Bomberonline.com to the Splitboarder.com Furberg thread. I ended up buying a Furberg 162 which I’ve ridden in powder with both softboots and my Raichle hardboots. I think the Furberg is a great resort board and it carves great for a powder board.

Now thanks to this thread, I bought a pair TLT5 Mountain boots.

Instead of modding the Forward Lean Slot, I used a shoestring and some 3/8” OD tubing to block the forward lean tab (similar to the post on pg.15). This allowed maximum toeside range of movement while keeping the top buckle tight. I used both the Dynafit optional tongue and the Eliminator tongue to give me the stiffness on the toeside flex that I wanted. The tight upper cuff and tongues acted as the stop for heelside flex. When I ride with steeper binding angles on my Coiler 171 for carving hardpack (54 deg front/51deg back) and Furberg 162 (33 deg front / 30 deg back), I don’t like any forward lean, so loss of the forward lean in this mode didn’t’ bother me.

I decided to also try the Dynafit boots on my Burton Custom 152 (with Burton plates) for the park/pipe. For this mode, I left the top buckle undone (for tweakability) and engaged the forward lean tab by using a Booster Strap. If the forward lean tab is NOT engaged while the top buckle is undone, you lose highback support for heelside turns. I like forward lean on shallow binding angles (18F / 9B) so having forward lean in this mode felt good. I also wore the Eliminator tongues, but moved those inward to prevent shin bang on the medial flex. I did NOT use the Dynafit removable tongue in this mode.

This mode worked great. I was able to tweak my methods and tail grabs just as well as my soft setup. Even with only the bottom buckle engaged (plus Booster strap underneath the top buckle that was left open), the Dynafit gave me better heel hold down than my soft setup (T1 boots / Burton C60 bindings).

With the TLT5 working so well, I’ll be able to retire my old Raichle hardboots AND the K2 T1 softboots.

The only problems I had with the TLT5 were due to the Eliminator tongues moving around. I’ll have to try the Intuition wrapstyle liners from the Raichles to see if I can eliminate the Eliminator tongues. I don’t want to cut the shells to eliminate shin bang except as a last resort.

The Elimator Tongues should not move around in the liner (underneath the liner tongue, if the supplied Velcro patches are used.
