I use a petzl lynx crampon but the toe bail that comes with it doesn’t fit securely with my G2’s. Anyone have alternative toe bails?

My Rambo's fit great, for what that is worth

Are you guys talking about the full crampons or just the toe bails that are used for that those particular crampons? I'm trying to find a toe bail that will fit the G2 toe welt and will fit the Petzl Lynx slot holes for WI4 climbing.

Grivel crampons fit my G2SMs well.

Would their toe bails fit the lynx?

Probably not.  I have friends who have tried to swap toe bails on crampons - honestly, it seems that it is more work than it is worth.  Consider selling your current ones and picking up another pair.

I put the basket version of the cassin toe bail on a pair of irvis hybrids by petzl because it was more comfortable with my approach shoes. the whole petzl system is universal so I imagine the cassin wire bail would fit Petzl lynx too. TBH though i would sell the lynx and get blade runners on sale during the summer, they just work so much better with G2SM's, I hated using my lynx with those boots. Bought blade runners the next day after trying them on my G2's/
