  1. SOLD: APEX X Plate 4x4 - SOLD Bought new from i-carve, used for 1.5 seasons lightly. The fit and finish of this unit is superb. It's like a piece of art that rides beautifully and takes out the noise and nails edge hold, I don't feel any loss of snow feel. Gloss top, carbon weave below. The flat end with the "X" points forward! I picked up another and only need one. Light binding marks and light scratches here and there, but no chips or issues. Comes with plate to board mounting hardware. $725 shipped to USA, paypal friends or venmo. RJNakata (art) aol (dart) com
  2. FULLFILLED - WTB: DGSS system for UPZ + red tongues Going on a flex producing program I'm looking for: DGSS for my UPZ's (1 or 2 sets) RED (size small) tongues for UPZ (1 or 2 sets). Thanks! PM me or RJNakata (art) aol (dart) com.
  3. Folks will have suggestions for improvements to fit their own personal needs, and raise CYA issues, but to me this is just incredible. A man had a personal need and just up and built the solution... out of aluminum... with a CNC... from scratch. My hats off to you sir.
  4. I'll write this here from another post: "I have taken to the "buddy system." I use small cheap walkie talkies (Motorola T100) with a button-press beep function (they all have this). I head down a run and my buddy beeps me if a straightliner is coming so I can pull over. I do the same looking up the run for him. I still look up the hill, but the beep has already alerted me to some hill bombers already. It seems to help." I was beeped a couple of times last time I was out. I hadn't see them without it. Oh and for the tik tok, max speed carving in a crowd can have consequ
  5. Here's a ASB post that jibes with your findings for MP 26. Also here is a mod for smaller boots that achieves more forward bias in TD3 SI's if needed. Instead of Fuego boxes I use a square tool like this: the black part goes under the board (raised on vises) and the relationship between the edge and boot becomes apparent.

  7. Here is an example of F2 Intec RS with MP24 UPZ boots. The overhang of boot toe & heel is equal over the edges using the "Fuego" method. The bindings had to be slightly modded to accomplish this...it does look silly but it is what is required. From the book above: "The 80-20 equation explains why "perfect balance" is our goal. When we say this we are not being "alignment fanatics" or techno geeks"
  8. Correction: the pin spacing of FINTECs and INTECs are identical.
  9. FULLFILLED - WTB: soft red UPZ TONGUES size SMALL MP23-26 I'm trying to soften my kid's UPZ's to get more flex! Do you have any old (non -swinging) tongues available? Thank you! RJNakata (art) aol (dart) com
  10. My daughter, with similar stats as @Jack M's athlete above uses nearly the same setup with a Donek Pilot (now "Talon") 152 & 157 . Both are also great boards for that weight range. She loves hard and soft setups depending on conditions (and who she's riding with) and carves like crazy in both. For me hardboots opened a whole great world of snowboarding...@Aquarifaerigo for it!
  11. Here is another version of the stop that I had at one time. the hex screw makes it micro adjustable. Not mine:
  12. OR widen the Bomber/F2 Steel receiver slots to accommodate Catek spacing. Fintec heels quickly gouge aluminum receivers. Intec heels do not.
