Thanks jgsqueak,

I even repositioned the binding to different holes and it happened a little their to so i'm confident it's normal..

My friend's horrorscope still has bumps visible under the insert packs because of this. He pretty much fucked that board.
It's not protruding, it's not dimpling at the screw but over the base plate and it's not visible... Thanks Cheese

and also some boards do reveal dimples where the mounting screws are, so that shouldnt be a concern

It's where the bindings sit not in between where the rocker is.

Tez if it is binding suck, which sounds right, is this a major concern and is it from tightening the screws too much?
10-24-2011 07:24 AM
Tez I wouldn't call it dimples, when I run my hand along the width of the board where the bindings are it's not perfectly flat, as if it were pull up a little at the disc. You can't see it only feel it.

jgsqueak Sounds like binding suck to me. Pictures would definitely help.

Thanks in advance
If its just some small inwards dimples in the base, then this can be fairly normal. If its something different, then id like to see photos...
