Question from Tim
 
Hi, I want to shim a Speed Turn toe by up to 10 mm ... is there a large shim or should I add a 6.4 and 3.2 to achieve 9.6 mm ? I'm using inserts so will find some longer machine screws.

Thanks

Answer from jbo
 
Hi Tim, 6.4mm is the thickest but some folks will stack them higher. If you do that, it's not a bad idea to put some adhesive (e.g. epoxy) between them so they act more like one.

Question from Schalene
 
Hello Mike:

I have a pair of Dynafit FT12's and am finding that I am skiing on my toes, what shim could I get for these to balance the angles. Could you also tell me what screws would work for this setup.

Thanks
Schalene

Answer from jbo
 
Hi Schalene, you would want the Radical shims for that binding. Easiest is to get the 4.7mm shim and 23.5mm screws. If you go 6.4, you would need to grind down the 28mm screws.

Question from Jim Odoriiso
 
I plan to mount a pair of 2015 TLT Speed Radicals to Solomon MTN Explorer 95 skis. My boots are Scarpa TX Pro. I believe the B & D Classic 6.4 mm shims are the ones I should use with longer 19 mm screws, but want to confirm before ordering. I also want to purchase a pair of crampons. Are the Dynafit 100 mm the best to use?

Thanks, Jim

Answer from jbo
 
Hi Jim, yes you need the Classic version for those, and 6.4mm is a good height in my opinion. 19mm screws work perfectly with those. Aside from color, the 100mm crampons would be ideal for the MTN Explore.

Question from ChuckM
 
Does the B&D toe shim work on the Radical FT? if so what do you do with the carbon stringer that runs between toe and heel pieces?

Answer from jbo
 
Hi ChuckM, the Radical shims will fit under the FT toe & baseplate, but not with the connector plate in place. You toss that in the bin.

Question from Jasper
 
HI,
i wonder if the 28mm screws are long enough for combining the 6,4 mm and the 4,7 mm Radical Shims to reduce the ramp angle on my Radical FTs as close to 0 as possible.

Answer from jbo
 
Hi Jasper, you'd probably be OK with a 6.4 and a 3.2, but not enough bite with over 11mm of stack. Also, crampons might not work for you at those heights!

Question from Chris L
 
I know you have probably answered this in a previous post but I just wanted to clarify. I want to raise the toe pieces on my speed radicals and was a little confused from a previous answer, so my question was can you tell me which item I need and also do you have the proper screws available to compensate for the added thickness. Thank You.

Answer from jbo
 
Hi Chris, you want the Classic shims (thickness is a preference, 6.4 is most popular) and screws to match your chosen thickness (19mm works without modification for the 6.4s).

Question from travis
 
I'm trying to shim up a pair of dynafit tlt speed classics. I'd like to get as close to flat ramp angle as possible. Which shim and screw combo do you recommend?
1/25/2015
Answer from jbo
 
Hi Travis, flat would be 6.4mm + 3.2mm Classic shims, mounted with 28mm screws. I haven't tried that particular combo, but it would avoid the need to shorten the screws for the 6.4 shim by itself (25mm ski screws are hard to come by).

After reading articles about ramp angle/toe-heel delta, I got some 6.4mm shims to raise the toepiece on a Dynafit Vertical ST binding. Took the binding from a +16mm to about +9.6mm for ramp delta. I'm pretty convinced this has made my downhill skiing much less tiring. Less tired = more vertical! Who would have thought this small change could affect my fun factor. Definitely worth the time, money, and slight weight penalty.

Question from Mike
 
I ordered the B&D 4.7 classic shims for a pair of verticals but forgot the extensions. If I order the extensions and choose Qty:1, will that be a pair or 4 pieces total? Just want to make sure...
Thanks

Answer from jbo
 
Hey Mike, all the B&D shims are sold in pairs, so Qty:1 = 1 pair = 2 pieces.

Question from george
 
So I was going to buy the 6.4 mm for my speed radical dynafit toepieces. This will work correct?
Second question: What length screws should I get? Do the toepieces screw into the shims and then different screws into the ski?
12/2/2014
Answer from jbo
 
Hi George, 6.4 is a good thickness but note you want the "Classic" version for the Speed Radicals, versus the "Radical" version which is for the Radical ST/FT. The 19mm screws are perfect for going through the binding, shim holes, and into your ski. You need one screw per binding hole (4 per Speed Rad toe).
