Default Mounting bindings - cant get the board!

Hey All -

Just got the Lib Tech Hot Knife 153...and pairing it up with my Rome 390 Bosses. The board is supposed to be a true twin.

I am running 15 degree front, 12 degree back. I screwed both bindings into matching screw holds for both bindings, but when I measure from the center screw (that holds down the foot pads on the bindings) the bottom of the board measures a little less than half an inch longer.

I thought your board should be centered when using matching screw holes? Does the 3 degree difference alter this?

Is it ok to use non-matching screw holes?

Sorry for the dumb questions, but this is the first time I have had this problem with any of my boards.

Are you sure the tail is the longer one? If the nose was a little longer it wouldnt be odd but the tail would be. If you think it could be because of the binding angles, remount them symmetrical and measure again.

Your binding angle has a bit to do with that, also the fact that you measure from the center screw which moves with your angle. Try measuring from one of the four insert screws underneath your footbed. They should be centered. If they are not it might just be that the inserts are not 100% centered which can happen during construction. I had the same on a NS Proto once.

But don't worry. First of all you wouldn't feel half an inch of a difference while riding. And you can always just turn the board around (as it's a true twin) and use the very slightly longer side as the nose.
