Anyone had problems with old Burton boots fitting into TrenchDiggers?
I just unpacked a new set of TD2s, slapped them onto the board, and discovered to my horror that the toe bails are too narrow to fit over my boots (Burton MGXs from '93 or '94) . More specifically, the lugs hit the bottom of the boot toe when trying to fasten the toe bail. I'm not talking barely scraping, I'm saying they lift the boot right off the plate.
Fin & Michelle from Bomber have been responsive but basically say my boots are not DIN standard and I might consider filing them down. I'm thinking there's got to be a better way. Did the old TDs have this problem? Anyone solved this issue without cutting holes into their boots? If I switch to a different binding (F-2, Catek, etc.), will I have the same issue?
I'm switching from an all Burton set-up -- board, bindings, boots -- and only plan to keep the boots because they fit so well. I'd really like to keep the TD2s, but I need ideas.
Any/all advice is much appreciated. -- Bruce
