miski Posted August 28, 2008 Share Posted August 28, 2008 I am planning a day to try a few adjustments and maybe a new binding - Looking for some recommendations. I would like to try taking a little off the finish of my on-side turn, and get a little more finish off-side.I'm on Sixam 1.0, 67.5" w/ Willey probuild wraps front & rear;Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â dft=.783", depth=2.500", length=6.905", wing upÃƒâ€šÃ‚Â @ 7deg, Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â front_heel=29.875+1position forwardLFF, 173lbs, 5'11" @ 34mph, -22'/-28'Rear plate is max rotatedÃƒâ€šÃ‚Â toe outÃƒâ€šÃ‚Â -Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â but would rather do something elseÃƒâ€šÃ‚Â than change this as it fixed a rear hipÃƒâ€šÃ‚Â pain I was having.Skied stock settings (other than rear rotation) for 12 months and worked on form at 30-32mph -Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â had to wait on ski to finish even when staying countered, shoulders level &Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â hips forward in pre-turn. Was not progressing, then July 22 went forward 1 position on both plates and it was huge gain for me. Just got to 34mph 2 weeks ago, made 6 of 7 passes 1 set last week, and am nowÃƒâ€šÃ‚Â completing -22' half the time, and ran a smooth -28' for first time in the middle of 5 tries.Now when I don't make a pass, it is 90% losing handle at hook up finishing 3 or 5 ball - but not from slack... just to much angle to hold.Just to make sure and over-communicate, besides setup work, I am trying to get quicker edge changes, especially going to 2 & 4 as I seem fast into off-side. AlsoÃƒâ€šÃ‚Â trying for little longer pull and quicker edge change going to 3 & 5 as I end up a little late from loosing space on my off-side. Also, making sure to stay and or increase counter on off-side.Thanks ahead for any help. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
