i just got my skis mounted and they set the DIN at 6.5. I always hear don't set your own DIN, take it to a shop but I'm going skiing tomorow and i can't get to a shop. I cranked it up to 7 on the toes so should i even touch the back or will it be ok?
this guy right here is fucking gnarly...he rides harder than Seth Morrison(DIN of 12)
In the end it all comes down to personal preference on how often you want to come out, vs want to stay in. If the risk of staying in to long is less than the risk of coming out too early adjust accordingly, and vice versa.
Sagging pants, wide stance, fat skis, powder in trees, corked three's with steeze.
im a tech at a shop and we dont do anythingthing special with dins just make sure heel and toe match up.changing it like 1 higher or lower is not a big deal if you think their popping out too easy take em like 1.5 higher unkess youre already at 8. if you are then check and make sure the bindings arent too far apart for the boot

Don't put your toes higher than your heels. Either have them equal or lots of people have their heels 1 higher than their toes. This allows for the same lateral release but your locked in tighter for forward releases.
I'm the sickest skier on NS. I'm better than all of you.
I'm exactly the same and I ski very aggressively in the park and the rest of the mountain. These kids that are jacking up there own din don't realize that there are so many factors that go into the release settings of a binding. Not to mention the din displayed on the binding is usually not even accurate. Take them to a shop and get the skis tested. Would you rather come out of the ski and bruise your hip or not eject resulting in you blowing out your knee and not getting to ski for the rest of the season?

If you pop out too easily then crank them up. I've been using the same bindings for the last 10 years and have been playing around with them to the point where I know what I want and what is consistent. Huckin 70 footers, crank em up. Just messin around set em to something lower.
the people at the shop you took your skis to obviously know more about the din than you do, that is why they work in a shop and you are asking newschoolers what to do. dont change it. is blowing out your knee really worth having a higher din? i dont think it is but you might think differently. here is some more info about it http://newschoolers.com/ns/forums/readthread/thread_id/353082/
