hey ballers, it's been a while since i've posted here. good to be back!
I have been running a reflex 500 release on my syndicate A3 for almost 3 years now. Recently I am struggling a lot with the binding releasing for no reason as I cross the wake. I believe the impact of the wakes is tripping the system. (happened 5 times over the course of 6 sets this weekend)
Since this started happening, I have inspected the system. The release is set at the same tension as I have always had it (about 5) but there is some play in the boot. I think some parts of the system have shifted over time enough to let the boot slide a little in the system.
to be quite honest, I have about a month left of skiing this year before I go to school, and I do not feel safe skiing as it is right now. in a perfect world I would just buy a new reflex but I want to get back out a few times before I leave, and limited time and money say that won't work...
I think my immediate option is to move the release mechanism's mounting assembly closer to the horse shoe one set of holes to tighten the boot in the system.
I could take the 404 reflex off of my trick ski and hope I can get the binding placement close (although I doubt I can position it well because the mounting plate is very screwy)
I just want to make the most out of this last month of skiing
Any suggestions, warnings or thoughts?
Thanks so much
