Baller ISP6ball Posted June 26, 2008 Baller Share Posted June 26, 2008 I told my buddy I would help him set up his 2007 Connelly 67" F1 with Draft bindings.Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â The stock settings stated the binding setup needed to be:Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â Rear heal of front boot to tail 29.125" (I think).Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â I don't have the numbers in front of me right now, IÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢m out of town.Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â Nonetheless, I measured it out, and it doesn't seem possible.Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â Even if I went to the last hole in the front plate i'm still around 29.50", and that would require some filing because the cable attachment covers up the last hole a littleÃƒâ€šÃ‚Â bit.Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â I called Connelly and spoke to one of their techs.Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â He kept putting me on hold because he wasn't sure what the answer was.Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â He finally got the numbers to me he said I needed to be in the center hole on the front binding plate, and in the second hole on the rear plate.Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â After I set the bindings up like that I measured from the front heal to the tail of the ski, and itÃƒâ€šÃ‚Â wasn't even close to being 29.125". My buddy wanted me to take his ski out and test it.Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â Well, unfortunately, I did.Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â On about my 12th pass (not feeling very comfortable); I went OTF coming from my strong side across the first wake (OUCH!!)Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â I did one and half summersaults at mach 10 with the tail of the skiÃƒâ€šÃ‚Â drilling me in the middle of the back (didn't even know that was possible).Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â P.S. My face hit so hard on the waterÃƒâ€šÃ‚Â I had numb lips for about 20 minutes. I took about a 30 minute recovery period and then went out to try it again (a lot less aggressive).Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â After several passes I was coming from my strong side back across the first wake and the ski wanted to throw me right over the front again.Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â That was it for me.Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â I put it in the bag, and told him I would do some more research on it.Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â Fin setting is very close to stock settings.Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â Do I just suck at this ski on stock settings or are the settings all messed up?
