    Ahhh. Of course. Thanks JnB.

    #300 is steep. Thats why I was hoping they would sell just the binding. I may get the webbing and try to rig something.

    But I have had my Evos for years and years...

    Is the binding swap just a matter of drilling out the rivets on the older shoes and bolting the Paragon onto the remaining plates as needed?

    Any pics?

    My very well placed sources say Peter had, for some reason, sold the building and is now renting. And he wants an arm, leg, and a soul for the (dieing?, obsolete?) business.

    I hate toe rocker.

    You know, the way your shoes curl upwards in the front. My feet aren't built like that are yours.

    Here's a test, stand in your bare feet, easy to balance right? Now curl your toes up so they are...

    Side hilling on tube frame snowshoes just plain sucks. They slip and slide really bad. And if the snow is soft the crampons do you no good at all. Downhill the tubes make for an entertaining ride.

    If going up in unstable snowy or icy conditions my Degres are worth the weight. They do not create shinbang like the more climbing oriented Koflachs. But they will never hike like.....hiking boots.

    I found the older Koflach liners to be narrow thru the toebox. However, many other liners fit into the shell. And the new...

    I have had great luck with the msrs. I like the way they hike, climb, pack, and carry. However, I am looking for ideas or plans to create an alternative binding system for my Evos.

    I have tried padding between shoes and straps. Neoprene works pretty well but Natreb nailed the problems.

    My dream is that MSR licenses the Boa tech. I'd pay full retail for that.

    Anyone use...

    Alternative MSR snowshoe bindings?

    Winter is coming!

    The PU straps on my MSR evos finally gave up the ghost. And I know I can get replacements but I wasn't thrilled with the straps since I have stopped wearing Koflach double boots....

    Thanks all.

    I have tried orthodics but they mess with my knees and hips pretty bad.
