finderGripWalk is a standard used by marker/dalbello/volkl and is technically not compatible with WTR. I've seen people jam Dalbello lupo ti's with gripwalk soles into marker bindings that are not grip walk compatible (Jester pro's in this instance) and even when I lowered the afd on my Jester pro's all the way, my Dalbello lupo AX's didn't fit right, and actually ate away at the plastic a little. I currently run alpine soles on my Lupo AX's, and fit them to FKS 180's and couldn't have made a better choice. I can use my boots in my kingpins and have only ejected out of my FKS's when I needed to. It's an overly complicated system, and no one wants to agree to a standard, so be careful what boots you're matching to what bindings, and consult a shop (or ask in this thread) about specific gear combos.
B.QuincyHaha, Same setup man, unfortunately dalbello was kinda annoying last year when I got my boots and didnt get the new soles until april so was stuck using my one pair of sticks w grip walk bindings I find even w the new soles the boot still doesnt sit as flat as a normal alpine sole (im not 100% it is but forget what the packaging said). If anything gripwalk,wtr etc makes it a pain as a tech on my end because now instead of just checking toe height I like to double check the books just to make sure all the insurance policies will back me up.
