I got my Afterburners a couple of weeks ago. Very light amd very easy to use. Definitely a huge improvement. I used them on my hut trip. The touring brackets seem to be a significant improvement stability wise.

About the only gripe I have is the shorter bracket. Not very hard to engage it but bringing it back up gave me fits. More so on one side than the other. I did find that grabbing the ski pole mid shaft when using the basket end to bring up the riser seemed to work more reliably. I think part of this is also the fact that I have been using Voile risers for over 13 years. Old dog new tricks etc...

They are a huge upgrade. Simple, effective, super easy to use. This is the one that has gotten it the most right so far.

My baskets are a little to flimsy, I use the handle. Yours might need a little tweakage or filing to get them dialed, or just a little wear from more use.

I've tried using the grips. The nose is pronounced enough. I am finding that the mid shaft grab works most of the time. I also figured out a way to lever it grip side if necessary. It's just getting used to the new way of doing it is all. None of the problems I am having are anything close to a show stopper. They may qualify as a minor annoyance.

Doing the set up on the Afterburners...quick ? are there a right and left side touring brackets? Both brackets are exactly the same and fit better on the left side (tour mode are centered)...and on the right side, the binding in tour mode is off center to the right by about 2mm.

Weird. They are the same as far as I know. Is your split a DIY or factory?

2mm is not much to worry unless they interfere when in ride mode (seen this on a diy board)

Always have to try the Stranger. Haven't done the cold hand-hot hand. Solid advice right there!

Wrath, following back up with ya. My brackets do the same thing. It is just how they sit for attaching your bindings. Unless it does something really wonky I think you are totally fine.
