Also on the tyrolia toe-piece the AFD is riveted to the toe piece and is shaped differently on different models so doesn't always match up to the FF plates. I found this out when I tried to mix some mad flex and free flex components!!
ScotsSkier is mistaken on these counts. The Free Flex plate is riveted to the heel track, but the heel piece itself glides in this track. The heel pieces are completely interchangeable, thus you can put the Cyber D9 (all metal bomber binding with a 14 DIN) on any of them. Also the toe piece AFDs are NOT riveted to the toe - a tiny pull with some downward pressure and they pop right off. This is one area where Tyrolia has changed the shape a bit so you have to mix and match the AFDs so that they're compatible with whatever you're setting up.
Here are some examples of my "Frankenstein" Tyrolia setups:
- Mojo 15 with Cyber SX lifter (from the Cyber Carbon D9s) required swapping the toe AFD
- Cyber Carbon D9 with the FF+ plate from a cheap FF7 binding
- Cyber Carbon D9 mounted "free" by using the toe shims from the Mojo 15 to replace the Cyber SX lifters
You could pretty much do anything you want as you're not affecting the operation of the binding in any of these setups - it's all good.
