Hope everyone is getting a good set in today. 75 and sunny here today and going to try out my new Senate Graphite. I went to put the bindings on and was a bit confused by the hardware. I have the profile bindings.
1) Where do the washers go with regards to the binding plate? I was presuming that the metal plate goes directly on the ski... then the washer on top of the plate and then put the screw in? Are the washers instead some kind of spacer that goes under the plate?
2) Also... there is a boomerang shaped metal piece that I presume goes underneath on of the heels as a riser... is this optional? How does this get put on if I want to use it?
3) As best I can find from multiple threads here the front binding is supposed to be 29.5 inches from the back of the ski. A few threads have mentioned measuring to the "stitching". The boot just looks like there is some horizontal stitching that goes around the back of the heel. The only reference i found on radars site is that a pro skier suggested "the center hole" for binding placement. In the center hole the back of the boot is exactly 29.5 inches... so I guess this is right?
Thanks in advance. Looking forward to trying the ski out later this afternoon and just want to make sure I got it set up right! Hope everyone is skiing today.
