So to have zero headaches you should buy a board with no adjustment. Zero adjustability = zero opportunities to get a headache from frustration

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.

It's got to be the position indicator then since your angles are clearly within the limits. I suppose you could mark the binding angle somehow and then take out the indicator. I'd try it as is.

It looks fine, however a solution might be to get smalls instead of mediums. That will push the whole boot forward in the binding thus eliminating the need to push the whole thing all the way toeside.

But yeah, its the angle indicator in the base that is holding you back.

Yeah I second that. I cannot seem to appreciate the issue here. The setup does look good to me ...... of course look can be deceiving.

My feelings are that you will be having fun and a blast too with this nice combo of gear. But do report back after your rides.
