Are your bindings is the right place?
When you get binding settings from another skier who is using another brand of binding how do you compensate? If you use a Wiley, Reflex or a Radar binding how do you know if you are at stock?
I did a little experiment today to see. Before every one screams BullS**t! This was my first try and I am aware that it is not as accurate as I want it to be.
This line was much more vertical when we drew it. I think I am standing wrong (camera angle?) in the photo but this is something to be addressed next time I do this. There needs to be a standard method of some sort.
Here is the Wiley & Reflex and Radar
I marked each plate where I think my ankle bone is and then measured the distance from where I generally measure the binding when I mount it up. (The actual marks on the plate were less haphazard than the photos appear)
Wiley= 3.3" to 3.4"
Reflex = 3.0" to 3.1"
Radar = 3.1" to 3.2"
Again I admit this is not as accurate as it could be. This is a first try but you can see that if you get settings from a skier in rubber and you use Reflex the difference could be 1/3"!?!?!? When I started my D3 Helix 3 review I got binding settings from Paul Crawford. He uses D3 T-Factor bindings. I had to move my Radar bindings back more that a 10th to get my foot in the same place as Paul has his.
