My Skiing

Have been skiing full seasons & touring since 2019, avg of 20-40 touring days a winter. Avy2 Rec, Wilderness First Responder through NOLS since 2014, leading trad 5.7 in Little Cottonwood / North Cascades / Eldorado Canyon & WI3-4

Comfortable in Dawson's D7-8 range, D9 if conditions are favorable. Notable lines include Silver Couloir on Buffalo Peak (CO), Emperor Face of Torreys Peak, Haiyaha Couloir in the Emerald Lake Drainage of RMNP. I prefer higher speeds in open terrain over tight trees, and snow with a base over bottomless pow. Corn > bottomless, 4in on a base > bottomless.

Skiing Goals include: Fuhrer Finger on Rainier, the Coleman-Deming on Baker, summit ski of Longs Peak via Keplinger's, the Skillet on Mount Moran, a variety of self-supported 2-4 day traverses in Colorado, putting together a Yellowstone backcountry basecamp week, and learning to enjoy that blind-ish, tight tree skiing on zero base that is our reality in CO for 70% of the winter

Quick Q - are you having issues with the F1 original or the F1LT/GT/XT format? I have the LT & may be moving to the XT, have had a good experience on this binding with my Maestrales so it's in the running for future light(ish) builds!!
How does the fit compare more directly to the RS 3.0? I've seen a number of reviews on fit comparing to the Quattro, and of course have noticed that the last is +1mm wider, but any adjustments to the shape? I've found one comment about improved heel hold, which is encouraging as that is my primary issue with the fit of the 3.0 and 2.0
Do you all carry replacement fast buckle (main, orange + numbered) straps for the F1LT? Looking for a fallback in case this warranty claim with Scarpa looks like it will take all spring, would be happy to pay if you carry them!
Any measurements on the Hagan Core Evo & BD Helio 350?
What is the ramp angle of this binding? I've checked your lists and no luck unfortunately Trying to decide between it and the original Core Pro, as well as which toe shim to grab - the ATK branded one or one of the 6mm B&D ones
