Default Never Summer Proto CT 157 not centered

My 2013 Never Summer Proto CT (157) was just delivered. I was putting bindings on it when I noticed that the inserts are not symmetrical, meaning that when I use the same inserts on both sides I end up with full 1cm of setback. I confirmed that by measuring many times.

Did any of the proto ct owners notice that? Is it by design or maybe some manufacturing flaw? Any thoughts?

I had exactly the same issue with my proto. It was even a bit more than 1cm. Thread about this is somewhere on these forums). Must be a manufacturing flaw if you ask me. I noticed it didn't disturb my riding so I didn't care but you could always ask NS on Facebook or contact their customer service.

I remember your thread about that - don't think it went anywhere, though.

Did you ever contact NS about this?

Just confirmed it on my 157 Proto too. Nose measures 19 3/4" and the tail is 19 1/4".

I've measured my '54 a few times and I'm pretty sure it is symmetrical.

No, I never contacted them. I just adjusted my bindings accordingly so it went back to being a twin. But it would be interesting to hear what NS say about that as it seems to be a common occurrence.

Thanks everyone for comments. This is a bit of a disappointment for a company that is praised for the quality. Considering that a design setback on most boards is between 0" - 1" I would say a half inch shorter nose is actually pretty bad. I have checked 7 other boards (different brands) and they are precisely as in the specs.

Will fire off an email to NS with that question unless anyone knows someone from NS who could comment in this thread?

Is the board nose actually different or just the inserts? Stand the board up on its side and measure from the contact points(the points touching the ground) to the tip and tail and verify if they are the same. If they are, then just measure from the tip to tail to center the bindings.

My 160 is perfectly centered (within 1/16 of an inch...)

you guys measuring from the board tip/tail or the connection point of the effective edge? dont know if there is a difference in the cuts on the tips/tails. Just asking.
