Just looking for additional opinions to help speed my transition to semi-hard shell rollerblade boots (from rubber T-factors).
I've only skied two sets (as I'm coming back slowly after some back trouble), but am beginning to feel somewhat comfortable in some places in the course. In fact, my off-side turn is super-sweet.
But my on-side is much too radical, and more so as the line shortens.
Since I haven't changed anything about the ski, I'm really only considering binding adjustments -- at least for now.
What binding adjustments (position of each, rotation of each, even cant) do people recommend to de-radicalize an on-side, preferably without changing much of anything on the off-side?
Additional info in case it helps:
1) My on-side pull is also still a little uncomfortable, with the sensation being a little tail-riding sometimes leading to launching off the second wake. But this seems to be slowly going away on its own, as I get used to the feel of the rollerblade boots.
2) I tried to mount my front boot dead straight and my rear boot with the same toward-little-toe rotation that I had on my rubber boots. But I don't really have a good way to measure that and anyhow a rollerblade boot might want a different rotation than a rubber one.
3) The spacing between my boots is almost as close as possible (including cutting the rear toe off), but I probably could get another 1/4 inch closer with a little more effort.
