Nice franken-binding Seb! I Might have to use the swiss cheese heelcup idea. You could ditch even more weight by taking a chunk out of the slider plates. I used mine for a season and a half with no issues, they are now property of the old lady (replaced with Fuse). I'm a skinny bastard so it's hard to say if the tracks would stand up to a bigger fella beating on them with the same amount removed. Not sure how much weight this saves, but it is noticeable. As for parts used: old bent metal plates and fresh low profile foam with drake highback, heelcup, and straps.
Losing grams, recycling, and saving money is cool!

Hi Nearls thanks and happy for see the yours, they are also nice . franken binding recycled..lol exactly that, and if they work good ,that will be awesome. my objectif was to be under 1000gr at the start but I will try to go as far as I can I 'm not very heavy too so I'll follow your board and I will cut the slider soon like the yours. I think it's possible to win around 30/40grs easly in this operation. . today I worked to redesign the highback, not for win weight in priority but I'm not a big fan on full carbon highback so worked for make them, a little softer, I made some slots and 2 for an high booster strap. Their flex seems better for me and I won 17grs again. I will repost pics in the week.
