what binding setting should i go, i have the problem that i can't land switch when i'm a little bit leaning forward and i can't nosepress (local shop mounted the bindings for me)??? im 6"0' (180cm), weight 165 (75kg), binding setting is now on 7
No man... don't do what these kids say, thats how you end up with too high of a din and tear up your shit. Go up a HALF din at a time until you're not releasing. 9 sounds a little high for someone who is 165 and is only releasing from landing switch and doing butters. What you should check before even thinking about cranking up your din is your forward pressure.
See that little screw on the back?(not the big din screw) When you click in where is it at in relation to the plastic housing? If your forward pressure is correct it should be about 1-2 click turns (inwards) from being flush with the outside.
öhm...the screw under the din-screw is comin out of the plastic housing like a half centimeter, but i think that is not the problem because the boot fits perfectly in the bindings (local shop mounted them for me)...should i change the din setting only for the heelpiece or for both a half???
was skiing on the glacier today and set the din from 7 (the shop did that) to 8 first, then after a switch 3 over a tiny jump i lost my ski when i landed but i landed pretty good and there was no reason to release so i set it to 9...little time later i landed only a little bit backseat on a bigger jump but the bindings shouldn't release but they did so i set the din to 10 and had no problems the rest of the day...do you think din 10 is a good idea?
hm i have a big boot (338)...i live on big foots =p ... and i checked the forward pressure - it's okey... i know 8 is really to low...9 works, but there are also prereleasings...hm what should i do, little over 9???
Just for reference, I'm 6'2" and about 220lbs with a BSL of 335 so shops normally set my bindings at 8. I kept prereleasing on takes offs and landings so I bumped it up to 8.5 and that was good enough. Listen to Tha_Grouch, he knows what's up
