Both left and right have done that on mine. Stop drilled the first one when it was only a 1/2" long and it hasn't progressed. The other one got longer before a noticed it so I stop drilled the crack and drilled 3-4 holes along each side of the crack and "stitched" across it with .032 wire. It hasn't changed since either :-D

Any downside on the TLT 6 Mountains with CL liners? I have a pair with the CR liners NIB in my house and a line on a pair with the CL's at a comparable price, and I'm wondering if I should return the CR pair. I'm a weight weenie above all else these days. Thanks for all the Phantom / TLT mod write-ups, super helpful.

breadbox: I have been using the CLs for most of this season. They save about 3 ounces per boot, and they are also noticeably more flexible than the CR. I have not ridden the CR, just tried them on at home (carpet testing). I would say that the CLs are great, but I also suspect they will not last as long as the beefier CRs. Also, IMO, the CLs could use a little more support in the highback area, and I will probably add a little high density boot fitting foam back there to create a little more support: in harder spring snow I have been noticing the edge of the boot shell pressing a little uncomfortably on my calves on heel side traverses. I would say if you want to save weight, and you are willing to deal with a liner which may not last as long, then got with the CRs. For best "value" the CRs might be the better choice. The extra flex of the CL is pretty nice though... I suspect the Dynafit branded CL liner is the same as the stock Palau lightweight liner available direct from Palau. I am not sure, but they sure look the same. If so, the Palau self branded version is much cheaper, and available for direct order from Palau in France. One other thing, I like to use laces with my liners, and find the Salomon quick lace to work really well for this.
