Hi, I'm looking to decrease the ramp angle on my Plum Guides. Am wondering if I purchase the yak toe plates, will the guide toe pieces fit? Also, I run binding freedom inserts on my skis, and am wondering if I purchase longer screws if I can use the same mounting pattern of the guides without having to re-drill for the wider template.
Developed some play in my Plum Yak heel pins. Both vertically and lateral play, and can rotate the pins as well. Compared to a new binding this is not the case. Binding has some use on the them. Is this due to wear and tear? If so, will replacing the pins fix this problem? Or would other maintenance to the binding help? While skiing I don't really feel the play in the pins at all. Thanks for the advice.
Are both crampon attachments work with all Plum toes? Or is the "new" style required for newer bindings? If they are cross compatible, what are the reasons for choosing one over the other? The new one looks unnecessarily bulky to me compared with the minimal stainless steel one.
Hi Joey, the new style is required for the 150/170. Old style for the 135/145/165/185 only. New one allows you to pop the crampon in from the top instead of sliding in from the side.
Hi Richard, the lock/unlock kit will make the binding much more likely to release in a twisting fall. Without it, you are essentially always in locked touring mode, making it unlikely your skill will release when needed. With it, you have the option to be in ski mode. There are no instructions, but the kit just replace existing parts so you can use one of your bindings as a model for the installation.
Could you please confirm that the heel risers are compatible with the new Race 170 model? (I don't see why it wouldn't be, but the description only says it's compatible with 145/165/185.)
