That actually looks pretty good to me but I'm still not exactly clear on what the issue is.
Could it be some asymmetry in footbed length that's causing this (illusion)? I noticed my diode ests seem to have different footbed sizing than my reflex bindings.
Does your centering method take into account board taper?
For what it's worth I think you have an excellent combo there. You may just have to go with feel even if it doesn't look exactly how you want it to.
It looks okay although I haven't taken this combo out yet to get a feel for it. I just put the bindings on it, but the Cartels worked great. It appears close to center but there's no more adjustability to move to the toe side if I have to.
I can only guess that's it's either the foot bed or the position indicator. No one around here stocks these bindings since most people play in the park where I live. Sadly, I'm too old to start that now.
I could understand a difference between an EST binding and a Reflex binding although both my binding sets are EST.
The taper was taken into account.
Friday I'll just have to run it down the hill a bit and see what happens.
