I only need to run one plate to cover the range of ski boot bsl's I own, and naturally I don't run it in the front because that would be …. weird. Obviously, I run just the rear plate. So, I automatically get a little shim action, which might increase my ski boots' forward lean by a degree, which I prefer anyway.
As with the La Sportiva plates, my only concern was that the 'arms' might bend out during the torquing applied to tighten the bindings down. No such issue.
The artistry of these plates is lost during a top-side viewing of the product. The bottom side has been hollowed out artfully. Saves weight, creates a thing of beauty for the gram freak. I consider this essential gear for mounting race bindings.
