Eric, just PM'd you with the details Jon Dahl sent me... Just hadn't gotten around to actually making the changes yet...
Might take you up on that. I have a heavy old set of Cateks I was going to try to get to work with my Voile slider plates, but I do love the Bomber stuff. If it works out, I think my money would be gong that way. Fin makes some good stuff...
I basically need everything save the lower foot section. I'm experimenting with two pair ofAT boots I have (Denalis and SBH's fro back in the day). I'm actually going the other way then most of you folks, looking to add a rear spoiler, about an inch or two in the tounge and another buckle ber boot. If folks have parts they are looking to donate to a good home (albeit a mad science home), I'm all ears. Parts I'm looking for are cuffs, softish tounges, long straps and retainers, buckles and all associated hardwear. Effectivly I'm going to try and either mate an AT lower to a X25 upper, or get as close as I can !!
Shoot me PMs so we can work out the details! Oh, and Jon, I'm ORCarve Eric relocated. Hows it going in the PNW?
I love this topic! For the last 2.5 seasons I have been using the dynafit MLT's. Lately though I have been thinking of going back to a soft boot for everything but mtneering style riding. I alway look at the sierra tr's with envy. Such sick lines in a soft boot set up just don't seem as feasible out here in the desert. By the time lines like that are safe, crampons and ice ax are almost a must and putting up a boot just don't seem as fun in soft boots. What your thoughts on how snowpack conditions play a role in boot selection. Don't get me wrong there are many mellow safe pow runs to be had, I'm talking sick, technical lines deep in the back.
