binding set up 05 Monza

Just got a new (long story) 67" 05 Monza unridden, and need to figure out where to mount the front bindings. Anyone have a chart or something out there where to start my set up?

    The best thing you can do for that ski is put a Schnitz Slot fin on it.

    Here are some 66" numbers from Pro Ski Coach.  You could start there if you can't find anything else.  <a href="http://www.proskicoach.com/skis/HO/Monza/2005">http://www.proskicoach.com/skis/HO/Monza/2005</a>

    29.25 front binding. Adjust front boot for offside and rear boot for on side control. I always liked a inch between my feet on the monza.

    The slot fin never worked for me on the Monza, but if you have access to one it may be worth a try..

    Ditto what Chef23 said.  It did work for me and probably 90% of Monza skiers, that I'm aware of anyway.  IMO the best tweak you could make to that ski.

    Thanks guys... MS is that measurement to the back of the front heel? or back of the plate or maleolus?

    To the back of the front boot rubber. Not the plate. In most cases with a rubber boot, it would be the back of the horseshoe that that wraps the rubber.

    thanks again, will see how it rides tomarrow!

    OK, very different compared to the old Mapple that I was skiing on. Plus went to fluid motion E series bindings. Next question is how are you measuring the DFT? are you using the head or tail of the calipers? Currently using the tail of caliper at DFT 0.72 is that how you are measuring? Thanks

    I always use the needle on the calipers to measure DFT.
