Burton Custom X vs. Libtech TRA ProHP
 
Hi everyone!

I would appriciate some advice on the following choice: Burton Custom X 162 Wide vs TRS Pro HP 161,5. My problem is - I have a foot drag on my current Libtech TRS: Total Ripper Series 161.4 and Custom X 160. I weight 155 Lb and I'm 6" high. I have Malamutes 10,5 size. Due to the huge sole of Malamutes I have overhang around 2,5 - 3 cm.

Thanks!!

Your boots should have no problem fitting on your TRS. What angles are your bindings set at and how wide is your stance? Out of curiosity do your toes touch the end of your boots? Does the heel of your boot overhang the same amount as your toe? Post a picture of your setup with boots in the bindings.

Does the overhang actually cause problems, or is it just visible overhang? Got pictures of it? I wear 11.5 malamutes, and there is visible overhang, but it doesn't cause problems.

It may just be that you are relatively new to the sport and need some "pointers" on how to setup your rig. If you post a photo, guys will help you make sure your bindings have the proper angles and that the boots are centered in the bindings and the bindings then centered on the board etc.

My angles are +21/-9 and my stance is about 55 cm.
My toes rest against the boots, but when I'm on the board it goes back a bit and that way fits perfectly. My toe overhang a bit more than heel.
I'll post pictures a bil later!

Unfortunatelly it does. Basically it rapidly slows me down during carve :( I mostly prefer carving, riding fast, going through trees, powder if it's there. Jumps from the natural terrain if needed. Dou you also ride Total Ripper Series TRS 161.5 ? or Custom x 160 ?

I ride for several years now so I guess I'm not new :) I'll post some pictures of my setup a bit later!
