dont think so, but why do you need it that wide? most bindings are only as wide as a 60mm waist ski.

I cannot believe that there is any flex under foot in an 80mm ski. The snow will give long before any flex will happen there.

Are you certain you are not feeling flex/movement in the binding or in the tip/tail? A wide plate won't eliminate this.

mount 2 derby flex plates side by side and drill the bindings 1/2 in each.

you also have a lot of give in the boot and bindings I think too.

If you're worried about torsional "slop" then make sure you don't go with a retail Marker - that toe piece allows way too much play in my opinion.

In my own personal testing the Look/Rossi toe piece provided the tightest torsional coupling of boot to ski.
