After some thinking why i broke my bindings and realized I always slightly force my knees a little bit closer together so that i am able to ride a little bit more without my bad right knee hurting. After trying a narrower stance from 23" to 21" it gave me more comfort on my right knee but turns were twitchy.

I got my new replacement footbed and made some canting to see if it will work out for me. From a cheap pair of flippers that i never used, it has nice striped groves on the underside so i cut it to shape and glued to the toe ramp. It is at 5 degree unloaded but after my weight is on it's becomes roughly at 3 degrees.

For whatever it's worth, here it is.

Lol, it's actually not that much maybe an inch less if I strapped them properly. My toe strap are over the boots just to put weight on the canting until the glue sets.

Very nice. Good job on the clean look. When I'm teaching someone that asks about canting, I just fold up two trail maps and throw them in there so they can see how it feels for the day.

I ride duck equal 15/-15 so if i need to change anything it will be equally on both bindings. Besides, it is only glued to the toe ramp and i got an extra pair.

nice work, looks like its maybe a bit over kill. As in it looks like 8 degrees or something. If it works for you then great but it seems like most companies are in the 2 degree area.

Yeah most are doing the 2.5 degree can't. Ride makes 4 degree but they have been tested and most people find that its just too much and makes the ride a bit odd.

It compresses 2 to 3 degrees more specially at the corrugated pattern with my body weight. I had limited material available so I had it a bit thick and if it works out then all is good and if not I will thin it out from the top.

The best tool for cutting the bevel job was a serrated bread knife, it worked great. :)
