almost exactly correct. the toe pieces are very similar (z for the 12, 914 for the 16) with the exception that they both have wider AFDs and you can adjust the toewings on the sth16 topiece independently (a la 916/920). japanada was wrong. twice.
on the topic of weight, when i held the jester and the STH16 i would say the jester is lighter... what do you guys think
The heelpiece is very similar to the 916s but has a plastic heel cup instead of a metal one. That is one area where they saved so much weight. Also, for the LAST FUCKING TIME, the STH16 toepiece is not the same as the 916 toepiece but plastic. It is very similar to the 914 toepiece, with the exception of a wider AFD and independent toe wing adjustment.
I have a pair of STH16s and 4 pairs of 916s. I have looked at these enough to know the differences. Please stop talking when you don't know anything.
