Hi,
Do you have problems with heel and toe overhang using AT boots ?

I am about to buy (or split myself) a splitboard. I want to use it with my TLT5. the sole is 307 mm long. Most boards are only 250-260 mm wide. Do i need a wider board for use with Phnatom Bindings or similar? I am considering to split an Elan El Grande.

You'll be fine with any board with >265mm waist. There's plenty to choose from.

No, properly sized Dynafit TLT5/6 boots are no longer in sole length than properly sized soft boots. In fact, because the plate binding is often more compact (no bulky heel loop) than a strap binding, you will often have less issues with toe/heel loop drag with a hard boot set up.
