Converting this year!!! Just found TLT5's on Sierra Trading Post. They only have a few small sizes. With and extra coupon I got a new pair of 28.5's for $350.

MountainDog, awesome! I did notice that inventory is dropping very fast for the TLT5's on the internet. One thing I want to say though is I am a 9-9.5 shoe normally so I figured I was a 27.5 size, but I found a 27.0 in the shop, and tried it on, and it was a perfect fit after molding. I heard you should size up because they run small and can get cold, but these felt great right at 27.5, which is a 9.0 or so. We'll see this winter how they do for coldness.

Yeah Jefe, starting to think about splitfest again! We'll have a final date for the event here shortly that we will make public. It will be in April though.

Yeah, I'm a 9.5-10 street shoe. My Malamutes are 10s. I tried HFT's 28's on and it seemed like they were a good fit. You will not find 28's anywhere on the internet. But, the shells for 28 and 28.5 are the same size, so I'm hoping with a foot bed or intuition liner I can make them work fine. They're showing up on the brown truck tonight so I'll figure it out soon.

Conversion chart

I did some searching and it seems like the only difference between half sizes is the 28.5 has a thinner footbed than the 28.

Z: You are probably in good shape. I generally wear a 10.5 to 11 sneaker/skate shoe. I am usually in size 10 for a Salomon Malamute or Driver X, maybe a 10.5 sometimes (they vary a little with season). The smallest TLT shell I can use is the 28, as you note, the 28.5 is the same size. If the shell ends up being ever so slightly big for you, the solution will be to add an Intuition liner, as the Intuition liner will be thicker, and warmer, and will mold better, than the OE Dynafit liner. Yeah, more expense, I know it sucks… but the Intuition liners are much better than Dynafits.

Concerning the to big TLT 5....

One could try the Eliminator Tongue if the TLT5 boot is slightly to big. As was the case with my Scarpa F1s. The added benefit is you get a progressive lean without modifying the boot. Try to carpet test the Eliminator at a local boot fitter (one who can heat mold your boots.

see http://www.masterfitenterprises.com/eliminator.html

...
BTW: The Phantom Alpha's look great. :clap:

Finally...and sorry for the wait...Here's an Order Info Sheet to help explain the various options, color choices and prices.

For those of you on the order list already, I'll be sending out an order sheet for you to fill out your selections.

Thank you for your patients. The build is coming along very well.

All order forms should be send out. If you didn't get an email from me and wanted to be on the order list, please send me an email.

This is the last week to sign up for this season's build so if you've been on the fence, it's time to make a decision.

Thank you everyone for the kind words. Can't wait to show off the final version. Bindings should be shipping out first part of October.

Hi Mimi,

Angles are adjustable +30 to -30 for each foot. Each of the bail blocks can be independently adjustable for cants up to 5 degrees and various lifts. The bindings come stock with 2.5 degree cants. System is designed to be rigid in the toe/heel direction but flex/give in the tip/tail (boot roll) direction.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

I will also add, that the binding angle is infinitely adjustable between +/- 30 degrees, so if you want 24.3333 degrees, you can get it... Also note that stance width adjusts in very small increments, and is totally independent of stance angle. Phantom bindings allow one to have more precise control over the exact angle and stance width they want.

Thanks John and Barrows for your answers but unfortunately my position on the board will not allow me to use them.

I use long boards (from 193 to 230) and narrow (about 24) with angles 45/42 and 32/35 and pretty stiff boots , 30 degrees for me is too little.

I also like to have less tip / tail flex, flex up does not allow me to use long boards in the narrow.

I'm sorry because it look very beautiful.

Cheers

Well, due to relocation to a different country I couldn't get onboard for the preorder. Are there any options left for me, apart from waiting for somebody to offer his first gen binding?
