snowklinger fwiw my new Malavitas by just looking at the base look way off center. Every binding has slightly different engineering and I've noticed on the 'vitas, the heel loop really goes far back. Also there is a toe ramp adjustment that when pushed in would make my bindings look more "centered". But of course I ride with the toe ramp all the way pushed out.

All that matters is that your BOOT is centered, and TBH from that picture it looks pretty close, although it is not a very good angle to be able to tell from.

KungMartin no absolutely not. the opposite actually. with a size 10 boot a normal width board is just fine. when you go above 11-12 a wide'll be more optimal.

Almogyo you saying that all size 10 and above should have wide boards?...

best thing i can do now is wait for the snow and if ill get a drag ill try to change the angle of the binds so it would be bigger angle but the shoes would be aligned with the board edge...

Thanks again.
ofcourse boots are connected xD there's no other way of finding out toe and heel drag dude!

you'll most likely have more of both, because i have a wide (26.5cm waist width) board with only a 10 boot.

Can you rotate the disc 90 degrees so the holes are parallel to the base plate and still mate up to the holes in the board. If so you can then use the extra holes in the slot to slide the binding back a 1/4" to 1/2" and that may give you just enough overhang toe and heel.

Does that make sense?? Hope it helps.

Stole this pic off the web so yours would face like this **Parelllel **



because I think yours are like this NOW and not allowing you to slide them back a bit **Perpendicular **

question though, which way are the slots in your disc facing. The slot parrallel with the base plate or perpendicular to the base plate???

Almogyo Yes it is at 15 degree...because of the direction the photo was taken you cant see that the rear end of the bind is already at the end of the board, meaning i cant take is backwards anymore...

http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/856/img0056ce.jpg/

+ i've tried to make sure the bind and the end of the shoe are on the same line...you can move the toe part of the bind...so thats what i did...

is it possible that because of my shoe size(11) is kind of big, there's nothing more to do?..
