Members lcarnes Posted June 10, 2014 Members Share Posted June 10, 2014 I've been on Reflex for over two years, and have suddenly started have a problem we (all kinds of ski friends) can't figure out or fix. It started when jamming my back foot in the RTP while in the water-the same way I have done it for two years. The front boot started popping out, even after I tested it on the platform. I've never been able to get the ski to release on the platform, even with help. So here's the list of things we've done to attempt to fix it: 1) tightened the side screws on the release (fixed it for about 4 sets-they are still tight and now popping again) 2) changed the outer shell twice 3) changed to a different plate/release on my ski (my husband's Reflex which is the same size and age but has far fewer sets on it). Tightened the under-screws before putting in on my ski 4) put my foot in different ways-gently, without touching the ski, toes barely in, etc. (sometimes it pops out and sometimes it doesn't-when it doesn't pop out I ski but I'm scared) 5) tightened the release tension to the tightest level (this works, but the tension is too high for my comfort level re safety) 6) put it back on my husband's ski and then tried to put it on-front boot pops right out, even though the tension is set for a 200 lb man-and I'm 140 5'9" So I have changed plates, releases, boots, ski, toe plate and method of putting it on. It's still popping out-again, after two years without fail. The last thing I can think of is that his plate/release is also failing, even though it hasn't been used. I have a new release on order. Has anyone else encountered this? Any ideas? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
