Default Adjusting Flow Bindings

I just received my new Flow Fuse bindings and am working on getting them set up as close as possible so I don't have to tweak too much on the slopes.

I have a bit more heel side overhang than toe side, both on the binding and on the board. I feel like I should have my boot centered over the binding first and then mess with the disks to get centered over the board.

It is a size 9 boot Ina large binding. I have 1 and 7/8 overhang on the rear over the binding, and 5/8 over the front. I have about 1 and 1/4 over the heel edge of the board and 1/2 over the toe edge.

It seems the only way to get the boot centered on the binding would be to adjust the heel cup forward, which I don't like because even with a relatively low volume boot my front ladders barely go under the ladder covers.

Any good suggestions?

Thanks!

You said it. The only way is to move the highback forward and Im not sure you can with those bindings.
Centre it with the discs and ride

I centred mine using the discs and then adjusted the binding with the boot in and on my foot... You will find your comfort zone very quickly if you do it right...

Will try and grab a pic later as my board is in the car so can't do right now...

I do the same as kevin.

Also, loosen the strap, set the boot in so the high back comes up without striking the heel of the boot, tighten the strap until snug, not cranked down.

I centered my boot with the disc by turning the disc with the slot going up/down. had my screws set on the lowest part of the slot. though my boot is 10 1/2 i do have the large size binding. Hope this helps.

^^THIS

These aren't like "normal" bindings. Resist the urge to tighten them up. They work differently, they don't need to be tight like you used to do with your old bindings. It will take a few runs and adjustments to figure it out. There is no way for anyone to tell you the "correct" setting, you have to ride them to figure out what works best for you.

Whatever you do, make sure you don't fly out of the bindings! I hear they just release from time to time.

Thanks for the suggestions. I ended up moving the heel cup forward and got the boots centered over the bindings. The ladder straps are good as far as length, I just need to fine tune to get rid of a little heel lift.

Just a little tweaking of the disks now to get centered over the board and hopefully I've eliminated a lot of tinkering on the snow next weekend.

And also, don't be a douche bag!

It happened, and I've pretty much figured out how and why. But you can still be and asshole all you want.

OMG - I totally laughed out loud when I read this as I remember that post about the guy "falling" out of his bindings - it was like 30+ pages I think! lol
