it makes a difference if your trying to mount the tlt comforts on the converter plate with 12mm screws!!! trust me, get tlt speeds.... or verts if your stance is wide/centered/low angle....

Hey Karkis, any idea where to buy the toe piece in BC? I've tried MEC but they do not have any in stock and not planning to bring in more anytime soon.

Questions for the Dynafit crowd: How's the durability of the toe pieces for those times when it's too flat to ride, but downhill enough that you don't need to skin? Do they ski well? Do you risk breaking the toepieces skiing without a fixed heel?

UB: Since you use both setups, how do they compare skiing wise with the Ignition IIs?

Thanks guys.

Not sure how durable is the toe piece for extended skiing/skating without the heel piece but having the hard boot is enough to give you advantage over the soft boot with Ignition bindings.

the shiz iz pretty bomber. skis like a hot cake!!! gotta keep in the backseat a bit tho... obviously, same as a soft setup. i put a hundred daze on my speeds last season, another couple dozen this year... hardpack, windcrust, melt freeze froze.... tears it up!!! there is no comparison to split skiing with a soft set up. no sign of wear on the binding. dont ferget to lock the toes :wink: and put the boots in ski mode.

some skiers i kno bring an extra toepiece for the group repair kit when going on multi day tours. i dont recall anyone saying theyve ever needed it.

v10 chek yer pm

^^^ Agree.

I only have a handfull of days on my Dynafit stuff, but hardboots in general are better in ski mode no doubt. And the Dynafit set-up feel plenty bomber in ski mode as long as it is locked down. The Ignitions are a a step up over traditional binders on Voile plates in ski mode and then any hardboot set-up is a step above that for ski mode. I'd even say the Dynafit mod is a step up over the Voile Mountain plate set-up because there is less flex in the boot sole than there is in the mountain plates.

Time will tell on the durability though, but as the others above have stated they seem pretty bomber.
