Toe Drag Binding Setup Help

I am constantly trying to perfect my setup and always ignored the fact that I have about about 1/2 inch more heel drag than I do toe. This has led me to believe that my boot was never centered on the board. I can set my bindings to Vertical mounting and slide back and forth to get more or less toe heel drag. Should there be more toe or heel drag?

Don't quote me on this, but I believe there should be an equal amount of toe and heel drag. You don't want too much of one and too little of another. I've only just started this season, but I've read enough here and elsewhere that you want your boot as perfectly centered as possible.

Yep, it's true, center your boot over your board. If you're on a unibody baseplate you'll have to use the discs to adjust it.

Thanks Guys.

My main questions are:

1. In my binding - Since I can't perfectly center my boot, which side should have less of a drag? The Heel or Toe?

2. After I center my binding as best as I can, how should I center the boot on the board by setting my binding plate vertical (toe to heel edge)? Should I have more drag on the toe or heel?

Get it close, then do it by feel. I put bindings on a new board a few weeks ago, mounted them exactly like they came off of my old board. On the first run, first heel turn, I knew they were wrong. Leaning on a heel edge, I couldn't get over as much as usual without a LOT of effort, so I knew I needed more heel overhang.

In other words, if it feels like one side of the board is HARD to get up on edge, move your bindings closer to that edge.
