Got the adapters and was putting it all together on my board and realized the four M5 x 12 screws that attach the toes to the adapter are waaaay to long. I cant even get them close to tight. The Dynafit toe flops around. If i tighten it any more ill put new holes in my board....

I have Older TLT/classic/speed toes (Black w/ Orange lockout). Im thinking the new toes have a thicker riser.

Headed to the HWstore 2morrow and will post up my solution for anyone w/ older toes.

STELLAR work on the adapters though! CANT WAIT to get em' working.

Awesome work. The heel piece of the dynafit binding would add a bit of weight, but hey, why not put that on there too? Then all we need is some sidecut in the middle and bam! a solid AT/board in one. This would fly, oh yes it would...

Something like this maybe.....

Lots of ideas going through the splitworld right now and it's cool to have someone like Spark willing to play around with many of them.

How many people would be interested in running a simple heel peice like this with their Dynafit set-up? This would replace/act as heel lifters too.

I gave Will's new "swivels" a ride on two sick couloirs yesterday and I am convinced that it will change splitboarding almost as much as the splitboard itself. I cannot believe how SICK these bindings ride. I am so convinced that it may be safe to say that softbooters are going to wish they hardboots. At first when I saw the bindings I was like yah, yah, they look cool. Then I noticed how they "swiveled" back and forth.

I wanted to see what they were all about. Yesterday, climbing up the couloir I was pretty nervous wondering how they would perform. I was a bit scared being on a line you don't want to fall with a new binding that works different. I strapped in, made a few conservative turns, and then it was SLASHER SURFY with soooo much control all the way down. It was almost even TOO easy making turns. These bindings are the BEST!!!!! I am first in line to buy a pair...that is of course behind UB and Schralptowner...damn...I HAVE to have a pair.

......I am stoked

Can we at least get a preview on how it works and why it is better than the other HB options out there?

All I am gonna say is "controlled and adjustable lateral flex". The rest you can figure out from the various posts on it. I don't expect Will to chime in until he's got something that is evolved past what Wyo, Schralp and I have tested. We've only tested the "proof of concept" proto and there is still a bit more work to be done.

But it will require the dynafit adapters and toe pieces for the ascent as it sits now. Will might have a trick up his sleeve to avoid that but as of now plan on needing both.

Rumor has it Will got a new fancy HAAS CNC so he can start really doing some kick-ass stuff in house. Which is why he's not been posting much around here I'm guessing. It begins......again..... :bananas:
