Hi Jessie Shimming the toepiece is actually going to put you further in the back seat (because you'll have to compensate more to keep your weight forward). Instead, I would recommend increasing the forward lean on your boot to help pitch your weight forward and out of the back seat. In any case, if you get the 6.4 shims I'd recommend ordering the 19mm Torx screws on our Dynafit Screws page for the best fit.
Hi William, I just checked and the 100mm will easily fit your Blizzard 105s. A pair of brake spring covers actually comes in the box with the brakes, but all they do is help prevent ice and snow buildup in front of the heel and under the brake.
Hi Simon, the MTN Pure also has a plastic shim underneath the baseplate that is the same thickness as the brake plate, so you'll want to use the same screws as the Pure. Both versions come with the same screws in the box.
Hi Benjamin, the brakes can indeed be removed with a Torx 10 screwdriver, even after the binding has been mounted to a ski. ATK makes a Brake Seat Cover that goes where the brake would to prevent icing and look a little nicer, though we are out of stock at the moment (you can still use the binding without the brake seat cover).
Hi Mauri, sorry to hear about your toepiece, that's definitely not something we see often! The Trofeo does have less material machined off of it to save weight, but there doesn't seem to be a difference in the amount of material at the specific spot where yours broke, so it's probably sixes as far as durability at the wing pivot. Generally speaking, ATK toes have great durability and I wouldn't expect this to happen to the replacement, but because you have inserts installed you could bring an entire backup ...
