Does anyone else wish there was a torque rating for tightening bindings on a board?
I've set up a pretty good amount of bindings for myself and other people, and I consider myself very thoughtful and proficient at it. However, I've never really thought about binding tightening until now for some reason.
I have a pretty strong grip. I've broken the tips flathead screwdrivers off on heavy duty bolts, I've bent metal over tightening weight sets and whatnot. I just switched out my bindings and put them on my Bataleon board and freaked out. I can usually tighten something until it breaks, so I don't really know what tight is in some cases...I mean I can tell if it's tight, but I can always keep going.
A torque rating would be really nice because I'd just use a drill to prevent from ruining my board. So I'm sitting here thinking to myself, "Did I tighten my bindings enough, or are they too tight?", because I'm scared to break my board. :P
Seriously. A torque rating would be perfect. Why the hell hasn't anyone thought of that?
