New g10 sequence plate

alex38alex38 Posts: 442 Baller
Has anyone tried this yet? And has anyone gone from the aluminum plate to the g10?
I have had an aluminum sequence for about 7 years (the same one) and my g10 comes tomorrow, just wondering if anyone can throw up any expectations or big differences.

    @skijay do you feel there will be any differences in flex in regards to what you have diagnosed with different mounting styles (floater washers vs not)? I have used floaters front and back for years.
    Thank you for weighing in.

    On a nerdy note, I notice on Radar's site it's called the Carbon/G10 Sequence universal boot plate. The description mentions Carbon, not G10. My understanding is that G10 is a glass-based composite alternative to carbon fiber.
    Which is it? Or is it genuinely some kind of hybrid?

    its a laminate with carbon on both sides and G10 in the middle. By itself a G10 plate doesn't look purdy.

    for durability purposes i would much rather have g10 than full carbon graphite. the carbon is pretty and looks hi tech but its benefit is light weight not durability. i've seen older reflex all carbon plates fail often but if you are some how able to significantly chip or even crack a g10 plate you are definitely doing some thing wrong.
    on a side note, you can buy thin g10 plate with jet black top and bottom skins for pretty reasonable on ebay. this piece is not big enough for a binding plat but the seller will cut you one that is.

    Anyone try the new plate yet? Do we still use the spacer washers under the plate?

    @alex38 no spacer with the new plate. My ski partner is on one. New plate is pretty sweet with its adjustability and removal of the requirement for the spacers.

    @UWSkier did your ski partner have an aluminum sequence previously?
  • UWSkierUWSkier Posts: 573 Crazy Baller
    @alex38 yes. Developed a crack late this season and was replaced on warranty with the new one.

    I wasn't using the spacer washers on my aluminum sequence plate. Just screwed it down. Just got my new Carbon/g10 plate. I liked the alum cause I could move a half a hole forward or back. Now this new one is just amazing for adjustability. Love at first sight for me. Well done Radar!

    How does the flexibility compare with the aluminum when screwing down all bolts. I have my aluminum plate screwed down - no spacers.

    Just tried mine while in a dry suit air 45 water 65 fog city. 3 22's and 2 28's. It works, ski feels lighter and more lively? Just a test run at easier passes but felt wider maybe. Nice to know I can move in 1/16 increments to fine tune smear. I've always felt like 1/4 or 1/8 inch could be the difference between a wheelie and a tip bite (which I could be wrong about). Really cool product very glad I tried it.
    This is coming off an aluminum sequence of 7 years.
