The standard nordic hole pattern is crap anyway. Unless you're t-nutting
to the ski it's too weak for plastic boots. But I cant say I'm all that
excited about the Peak Rigs design to begin with. It seems like unless
your boot fits it exactly (which it wont as it wears down) it's gonna get
sloppy. It doesnt get rid of any of the tele-nnoyances that have bugged me
over the years either (boot rocker, excessive width, and releasability to
name the big ones). To be honest, touring flex (the real reason for the
design) has never been an issue for me either, and even if it was the Peak
Rigs doesnt seem like it will perform noticably different from a standard
three-pin. This, of course, isnt to say I would turn down a free demo...
