Five Stars for BD Gold Label Adhesive: a spare tube of this is an absolute must for any skimo racer with our tail-less skinny mohair skins, often with relatively weak European skin glue. Even with strong glue, the tail end of the skin will take a beating since the lack of any tail attachment hardware means that the glue will be handled there much more. You can get in many touch-up renewal jobs with a single tube. Major caution though: these fumes are serious, so use outdoors only (e.g., screened-in por...

I had a similar situation buying the PDG's EVO sibling sight unseen, after having used the TLT6's TLT5 predecessor. In the TLT5, I had the 26.0/26.5 (same shell and liner, just thicker throwaway footbed in the "smaller" half size). In the EVO, I bought the 25.5/26.0 (ditto on the fictional half size). Two of my buddies who did the same thing couldn't sense any difference in interior length despite the 8mm shorter bsl. But given that I was close to maxing out the interior length on the TLT5, I could definite...

Five Stars to Skimo Co for enabling a price-point skimo race binding setup by offering the a la carte Dynafit Speed Radical toe, combined with either the Plum or Kreuzspitze race heels. Going into the 2014-15 ski season, "normally" priced skimo race boots are now available from three different brands -- all carried by Skimo Co of course -- and I count at least half a dozen normally priced skimo race ski models carried by Skimo Co. But no binding company offers an entry-level model along the lines of the boo...

And here I was thinking that you guys endure excruciating pain only on the up! Seriously though, sounds like we have (or had, in my case) a very similar problem. When I told my boot guy the problem, he took a quick look at the shell and could immediately see how it curves in, almost forming a little shelf. Modifying it while still preserving the exact alignment of the latch bar is definitely the hardest part. Some pictures (of my left boot) here. If you local guy can't do it, then try Greg Hoffmann -- ...
