Question for bootfitters/boot experts. Please help me!

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hi,

I need your help. This is a tricky situation but i am confident you can help.
I know the toe DIN standard is 19mm thick and the heel lug is 30mm.
A frind of mine added a lifter under the toe of the boot and had to grind the top of the lug. He did just that, but he also ground some plastic from the toe lug on the sides. This was a mistake. He rebuilt the toe lugs. So far so good. He has Marker Comp bindings and they have two wings. After he rebuilt the lugs, they now make contact with the wings. They are almost identical to the toe lugs a boot comes with. But there is one SMALL problem. They are not 19mm thick. They are 14 or 15mm thick. Otherwise, they are ALMOST identical to the toe lugs a boot comes with.

Can this be a problem? The toe lugs fit into the binding and i have not been able to see a difference between the old toe lug and the new one.

Could you guys tell me how to test if the new setup is good (if the binding holds the boot properly)? I know the best test would be on snow, but is there anything he can do before he hits the slopes to see if there is slop or not?

Thanks a lot!

vermont cailbation machine. some shops will have one to test bindings.

might get some slop in the toe / bindings up and down with the 3-4mm you are missing,

also use a salomon binding and wind the toe hieght down to the new shorter boot height.
