Question from mmullen
 
I wanted to compare the relative weights of your shims with you B&D shift plates. I found the weights listed for your shift plates but, alas, no mention is made of the weights of your various shims. I assume the shims are lighter but there is no mention of how much lighter. Also, what material are your shims manufactured from. I looked all over but couldn't find mention of this.

Answer from Trace Leches
 
Hey Mmullen! Not sure if it changes things or not, but these shims are made by B&D. Not sure exactly what kind of plastic these are made of, but they're sturdy. Weights vary a lot, but I weighed the most common shim we sell, the 6.4mm Classic, and they are about 30g per side.

Question from Grayson
 
Hi, for the Dynafit 2011 TLT Vertical FT12, what model of shim should I purchase, and what corresponding screw size for the 6.4mm? Thanks!
2/25/2018
Answer from Trace Leches
 
Hey Grayson! For the Vertical FT you'll need the Classic 6.4mm as well as the 6.4mm Classic Extensions to support the baseplate so it's not hanging out in space collecting snow. The screws you're shooting for are the 28mm screws, but they need a bit of modification (to account for extra length). Unfortunately the Vertical FT has an interesting screw length and when you shim it 6.4mm you'll need something in the realm of 25mm.

Another easier, but less awesome solution is to get the 4.7mm version shim and the 23.5mm screws that require no grinding!

Question from Karl
 
I have Dynafit Vertical ST bindings, and want to add the low (4.7mm) toe shims. Just wanted to doublecheck on the screw length: (1) 23.5mm screws, right? (2) your website says "medium" pozi screw heads for the 23.5mm screws that you stock -- is that the same size head as what comes on the Vertical ST, or will I have to grind down the screw heads? Thanks!

Answer from Nate
 
Hi Karl, As long as you are using the original toe plates along with the shims you are adding, the 23.5mm screw size should be correct. The heads of these screws should work fine with your bindings without need for grinding. As always, double and triple check the screw length to ensure that it's depth will be correct for your ski.

Answer from jbo
 
Hi Trickytiger, you're going to want the Radical ST 2.0 toe shims for those.

Question from sbf
 
Hi

Kingpin shims sold out?
What type/length of screws for the different shims?

Thanks,
sbf

Answer from Trace Leches
 
Hey sbf! Kingpin shims are indeed sold out, however we place refill orders pretty regularly so if you're interested in getting a pair let me know and I'll see what we can do! Screw length is a pretty straightforward topic but depends on exactly which shim you end up with! One easy way to solve the dilemma is to measure the length of the standard mounting screws you have and then add the thickness of the shim to that length!

Question from Gnorway
 
Hi,
I have a pair of Radical FT 1.0 and Dynafit Beast boots (320mm sole lenght), and I am wondering about purchasing either 4,7mm or 6,4mm shims. What do you recommend? And what kind of screws goes with the two alternatives?

Thanks!
12/31/2017
Answer from Trace Leches
 
Hey Gnorway! I think if you're gonna go with a shim to flatten out the ramp angle, you should go all the way and get a really thick shim to minimize the ramp angle! Just my thought on that, but the 4.7mm will work just fine as well! As for screws, the 6.4mm shim will need the 28mm screws (though you may need to grind them down a touch), whereas the 4.7mm shim will need the 23.5mm screws.

Question from Linda P
 
I just got a pair of Fischer My Travers size 24.5 ski boots. I took them out today using my old skis with old Dynafit TLT Vertical ST bindings. The forward lean was extremely uncomfortable. My question is: I will ultimately be using these boots with my new Atomic Backland bindings and I was wondering if I will need a shim under the toe to reduce this forward lean or do you think this binding will have enough of ramp angle backwards (compared to the Vertical ST) to reduce the lean? Do you even have a shim that will fit on the Backland? I will also try compacting the thick Intuition liners in the calf area to help.
Thanks,
Linda

Answer from jbo
 
Hi Linda, there is much less ramp in the Backland (details here). You should be fine without a shim. B&D has not yet made one specific to the Backland either.

Question from Gem
 
I am buying the BD Classic 6.4MM for my Plumes. They are currently mounted on my BD Judge. Is the screw size that comes in package enough? Just want to make sure... Thanks.
12/15/2017
Answer from jbo
 
Hi Gem, the shims do not come with screws since every situation is different. In this case you'll need screws around 21mm. Note you can also shim the the Plum Guides with rental toe plates that are thicker and add some function.
