You don't have to install the toothed with the pads already canted. Install it flat, then adjust the canting once it's mounted.

That's what i'm talking about =) so if you want to rotate the bindings you got to unscrew 9 screws. (actually less, about 7).

4 mounting screws + 1 footbed screw

i think that adds up to 5 screws per binding


now let's compare this with other typical bindings that use a disc cover that screws on

4 mounting screws + 1 screw

hmm.


yep, clearly 9 or 7

I think what he's saying is he's canting the footbeds so much that he has to mess with the four cant adjustment screws just to pull the footbed off. Four cant screws + one footbed screw + four baseplate screws = nine screws. If you're canting the footbeds enough to make it hard to pull off, that's waaaaaay too much canting IMO.

Agreed. Unless you're rocking a 30" stance, there's no reason to have it that extreme. I actually tried the NRCs maxed out for a day, just to see how it felt. It was weird, and not in a good way.

Well. i haven't tried the new bindings yet, so i can't say anything on it. Anyway, i don't think i'd rotate bindings often. and i can do it at home the day before ride.
