If you're still on Cateks...

Recommended Posts

I love mine - OS2 step ins and my third or fourth set, each better than the last - but they are 100% better now that I've finally replaced the aluminum receivers with Bomber steel, and replaced the stock Intecs on my boots with Fintecs. Connection is immediate and incredibly solid, and there's no sense that the boot needs to be compressed longitudinally in order for the mount to be secure, it's just a solid, no wiggle latch which clicks in audibly. I modified the Bomber receivers using a drillpress to start the new hole in the steel and a Dremel for chamfering the aluminum top piece, and it took some time, but was really worthwhile.

If you like solid, you've got three more steps to go.

Replace the OS2 base with the OS1 base and eliminate the bridge piece.

Replace the front bail and toe pad with one from a step in TD1 (probably won't happen on account of drill pattern). The hinged bails flex less than the formed bails, and the TD1 pad has more surface area.

Then make yourself a new intermediate plate out of 3/8 stock, and use six jack screws instead of 4.
