Exclamation Is this normal?

So i got my boots finally, Burton Invaders. Was getting them sized up into my new bindings (07-08 Salomon Force) when I noticed how much my toe overhangs. Is this normal? Should i even be worried?

Its a Burton Air 5.1. I beleive its a 154 (old board my dad got for me at a swapmeet), still works just fine tho as the riding surface is in good condition and stuff). Also, im about 5'9" or 5'10" in height, weigh 175 llbs.





If you want i can get in my boots and strap in and take a better pic.

yeah i was thinking of changing the angle a little bit...ill post a pic of what the bindings are at now in a min or two. as far as the +5 degrees or whatever...im still noob with all this and im know the markings are on the disks but im not sure how to read them.



Maybe this will help too...

nvm. i just looked closer and the bindings are pretty centered. have you tried moving the bindings back a bit so that the heel of the bindings are further back than the front? that could even it out.

Alright ill look into adjusting them and see if that fixes the issue. You're talking about the how the disks are mounted in right? I had some issues gettin them on right because it appears the hole pattern is slightly off. Someone on another thread mentioned to make sure the disk is compatible with Burton's hole pattern...well I know the hole pattern on the disc that came out (burton bindings) dont look anywhere near the same as the hole pattern on the disk that came with the salomon bindings. Maybe that has something to do with it.


Not exactly sure why you think they are mounted wrong though. Im goofy footed, thats how it works for me lol.
