Thumbs up Binding Placement (NS Revolver)

hey, so its almost august, figured it was about time to get prep'd :-P

ive always wondered where to put my bindings, i had them centered mostly, measuring 19" for the tail and a 20" in front, like 15, -9 for angles if it matters

i moved them back for a powder day and the tail was really stiff, too stiff, my rear leg tired real quick ... how do you decide? for a twin, keep the tail and tip same length? heres some pics of the pattern and length ... i hope everyone has a nice summer 'buzz' goin! CO's july dusting just stoked the dream ... i will make it west in '10

Usually have it the furthest away the binding can go for comfort reasons and control of riding rails.

why do you have a giant burton process logo on a non burton board??

use whatever stance works best for you. only you can figure that out.

FYI if you're trying to center it on the board the nose is .5cm's longer.

haha chiiilllll, burton boots guys, i dont sticker unless i own atleast one thing, i should have overlapped the black rome and black ak sticker next to it but i got the burton one last

thx for the help, riding always tells me whether it works but i cant seem to get out more than 20 days/yr, just enough time to ride ride ride

i was just wondering if you should keep them in the same holes respectively on each side or do like the guy is saying below, go all the way outwards on each side (wide stance), or does it not matter besides preference of the hole (hehe) and just pay attention to keeping the tip and tail even for freestyle??

by furthest do mean all the way outwards from the center, use the widest stance?

there are no rules but its a good idea to have the bindings centered on the insert packs, meaning if you want to go wider move both bindings out not one binding twice as much, or if you want to move your stance back move both bindings back rather than just one. every board has a sweet spot that works best for your style (some guys ride knees in, some ride cowboy style etc) so you have to experiement to find what works best for you. sure some guy might say ride it as wide as possible but if you set your bindings like that and try it and not like it you won't be keeping it like that just because some dude said so, right?

Yeah, I ride the second widest, alot of it depends on what you are doing. If you are gonna ride park, you'll want to keep it even (back foot to tail = front foot to nose, things will be a little different if you are riding a directional board). If your all pow move it back a set of holes. You should figure out a comfortable stance width first. The most important thing is being comfortable.
