Binding Position, which one? Pics and Poll!
 
2 Attachment(s)
As the title says, which position do you think is most centered 1,2,3 or 4?

They are all slightly different using the mounting holes and the heel cup adjustment (not very precise on 390 Boss).

So please help me. Oh and yes i am a perfectionist.

EDIT: Pics updated to be clearer against the background (not perfect mind).

For being a perfectionist, the lighting of your pictures leaves a lot to be desired. That said, I'll go #2.

Haha yes you're right. I'm a Luddite perfectionist so anything to do with tech and i am not interested anymore. Sorry i will try and tweak that as it isn't clear at all.

Don't look at it. Break out a straight edge and ruler and measure at it. You want literally the most centered stance you can get, not the one that looks the best.

Oh believe me i have done this BUT given that the toe of the boot curls away from the ground much more than the heel wouldn't you need to compensate for that when centering?

dude....it doesn't matter if the bindings are centered.....

you want your foot centered....the usual center for the foot is....drop a plumb line down from your shin.

1 find the center of your foot
2 find the center of your foot in your boot and mark the boot
3 find the center or mid line of the board
4 match the center line of the foot to the board's center line
5 adjust the binding so that the center line of the board/boot/foot stack right on top of each other.

thus you could use tools as noted above.

6 go test and ride...should be equally responsive either going toe or heel side...if not re-adjust.....you will feel in your riding when your foot is in the sweet spot.

and toe ramp should fit the profile curve of the boot...you want it to match so as to get responsiveness...i.e., when you put the gas pedal down....you get an immediate response

first get the center line match up using the bindings....may have to adjust the heel cups and even use the slotted disc of the bindings to also adjust the get the foot/boot/board center line to match.
second then get all the straps and shit to match your boot fitting snuggly over the centerline

Wow cool thanks for this excellent and detailed description. One question though, when you say drop a plumb line from your shin in what position should i be standing, upright or in a bent knee position? The plumb line changes depending, unless i am missing something?

I do it just standing upright and bare foot

So doing that puts the "centre" towards the heel more than the toe, is that the same for you? I don't really understand how that can be the centre of my foot?
