Need Help setting GNU Mutant bindings

Hi, I bought a pair of mutant. I ordered an XL (11-14)and I can barely fit my 11.5 boots so I guess they are L beside the label on the box. Since I had them shipped to Argentina Cannot send them back cause would be pricey

that being said I'm trying to get the best of it. I set it as large I could including the Cable high back lean screw but Iím still having forward lean, So this cable has one more hole to mount it but only can be used in one side (the one you can adjust) the other has a kind of a liner (a plastic semi-circle) that goes inside the last hole. I attached a picture to make it a little clear.

So my question, would you recommend me to just go third hole with one and leave it the other? Is it going to affect my ride if the cable is not centered???

Thanks and please be nice with my English hahahah :-S

I ran into the exact same problem when adjusting these, I am a 10 and rode a pair of mediums. I went ahead and moved the one side to effectively lengthen the cable so I could move the highback back. Worked like a charm. I say go for it, there will be no difference in feel or flex.

The bit you say cannot be moved to the 3rd hole actually can, I did it with mine. You have to remove the entire plastic piece and turn it around so the piece you call "liner" is in the middle hole and the circle piece is in the back hole

Done the same thing. But after that, I feel more comfortable wearing it.

Sorry but I didn't get it. What I want is to get the cable more loose so I need to put the screw as close as the hb I can.

The piece is just one, the hole and the bit where it has the space for the cable if I turn it around the cable will go out towards the front and not to the hb :-S

I cant exactly remember how I did mine but I definately did it, I cant look at the either because they broke on me first day and I sent them back.
I see no reason why you could not just move the other seide with the threaded rod back a hole

This is the more loose I can, is not bad, but I used to ride more relax in a pair of burton customs with 0 hb lean...
So I think the only thing I could do is only move back one side of the cable like duh did and wait season starts to check them out.
Thanks guys for taking the time to answer

btw ETM what were wrong with yours?
