I am not sure what you are saying here. What do you mean by "in those holes"?

I can't help but feel while reading this thread that Burton is not so out to lunch with the EST/ICS system. It's nice to have a virtually infinite mounting range!

That said, I think I'd sacrifice ideal stance width to attain ideal centred overhangs.

Hard to tell from the pics, but here's how I setup my board(s): Put the board (with a towel under it if you want) up on your kitchen counter, and then tilt the board up on either edge, while pressing the edge into the counter. Tilt up until the boot/binding makes contact with the counter, and check the angle. My Nokia has an angle meter so that helps, but you can eyeball it or use a piece of paper and fold it to match the angle.

Then do the same thing on the other edge. If they're not almost identical, adjust until you get it as close to identical as possible.

He turned the discs 90 degrees so instead of heel/toe adjustment he's got stance width adjustment.

I suspected as much, but did not want to speculate (especially with a newb who might get confused if we are making to many assumptions - better to spell it all out).

Lol, never even thought of doing that. Will have to play around with it when I pick up my new stuff!

Rotated the disks but it makes no difference. With the offset disks (came with 2 sets) the offset and the 90 degree rotation slid all the way to the heel edge are exactly the same.

I'm uploading pics now that I'll post to show you what I mean. That overhang is just the way it is.

Off-set disk vs. 90 degree rotation of standard disk.

Off-set disk and toe overhang





Rotated disk and toe overhang





Any more bright ideas...?

Can you slide the heelcup back? your boot doesn't look like it is tucked back into the binding as far back as it could be.

The binding looks decently centered... I don't see what the boot should be shifted that far to the toeside.

Yeah I used to do it all the time! As long as your bindings are naturally centred it works well. And I've only got size 8 feet so overhang isn't usually an issue even on narrow boards.

Yep... EST that binding could be anywhere he wanted. I've been happy with the system on my board so far. No loose hardware yet. Although the channel clearly has pushed down on the base a bit.

Yeah I didn't know you had offset discs. Well it is what it is. Doesn't look like the end of the world...
