Wanted some advise from others on this as I've never mounted bindings before, have a 2011 T.Rice Art of Flight Lib Tech board and some brand new Forum Republics.
I've mounted them to the board however it was quite a job, 3 of the screws seemed to go in easy however the 4th was consistently a little off, I had to tighten the screws a little and move onto the next one, tighten a little more and move on until finally all were screwed in. Noticed a few small bits of clear topsheet/fibreglass whatever it is come off where the thread of the screws must have cut it out.
The bindings are now on and seem very secure, they look to move a little at the tow and heel however I think this is due to everything being more flexible than my old setup which was stiff as board, stiff as bindings.
Is this process normal? Should it be a bit of an effort to get the bindings to fit? I notice the Republics are exclusive 4x4 bindings, the board is 4x but cant remember if 4x2 or 4x4. I just want to make sure, was thinking of taking into a shop to get them to fit the bindings again for me however we're off to Japan and I'll prolly need to set them back anyways....
