The new bindings shouldn't really affect your ollie. It is all in the technique. It's all about putting a lot of weight on your tail and then when your nose comes up shift your wieght forward. It takes alot of energy and concentration to ollie fairly high, so don't worry about it.

his main question was can you give me some tips on how to ollie higher, seems better suited in the tips/instruction center. the gear related issue could have been addressed as a secondary problem with in that section, posting here the answer would leave answers being gear related
i.e. if you cant ollie with your new gear, sell it and go back to your old setup problem solved.

where as in the instruction section you would have gotten tech related responses

i.e. stance/weight transfer.

the only question in his post was how can i ollie higher asking if gear being heavier is not the main question as it is not indicated by a "?" so you guys are still the fail

douche 2 i still hate you, and I®thainterwebz kykekilljoy get used to it.
