Rossi made this quote

"There is a huge difference when running a rear boot and a rear kicker.  Mainly that in the pre turn when running a rear boot, you have a lot of pull on the rear of the ski.  Binding position usually goes back when using a rear boot due to this pull.  Fin also usually gets a small tweak as well."

Can someone explain this "pull on the rear of the ski" to me .

I think it took about a week to get used to the feeling. </font></font></font></span>
