Wondering if anyone has come across these base inserts from Tognar and if so how well they work?
Cheers from Alberta, Canada!

Forum Member Burton sells them as well on his homepage Wildschnee.de

They're cheaper there.

The thing is you need the expensive drill bit. If you make more than the occasional DIY I'd say id doesn't pay to get a kit. On the other hand no more drilling too deep etc. If you haven't already invested in the drill bits needed for the regular Voile inserts and you are planning on splitting more than one board I find that to be a really cool and clean solution.

They work good, but you will need the special drill bit for them and that ain't cheap.

I used these on a burton super noodle and two of the p-tex tabs seperated from the inserts as i was ripping my skins. The shop i sneak into had these with the a super worn out bit which made it interesting. Not sure if they're worth it? The knurled sides of the inserts offer questionable grip as well...

They have been used for skis for many years. It takes a little practice to get them done right. You can start the p-tex cap separating when you are inserting into the drilled hole.

I have used these a ton. Built my first split with them and have installed over 100 of them in the past 2 years. The bit is pretty spendy and also they are prone to spinning so they are not necessarily the best option.

I found that you NEED to use a drill press for these, without it they will sit crooked in the holes and the ptex will most likely pull off. I have a bunch in the shop, and would be willing to offer just drilling the holes if you want to save on spending the money on the bit.

With that said, when installed correctly and with good epoxy, these hold up really well. Also note that most of the hardware on a Voile kit will need to be replaced with shorter screws, my origional board spun an insert because I had too long a screw and it got over tightened, was trying to remove a puck and spun the insert. I wouldn't recommend them on a setup you plan on removing the hardware often on since they are pretty easy to crank too hard and spin.
