Hi all, I'm looking for some ideas/thoughts/intelligence on this issue: could a difference in binding delta of only 2mm over a boot BSL of 306 cause a lot of difference in my skiing?
I have a pair of NOS Dynastar Cross Ti's that I have only skied 2-3 times. I also have a pair of Scott Crusades w/EPS demo bindings on them. The Scott bindings appear to have 0 delta, and I like the way the ski skis. It hooks up quickly and surely and the tips feel directly connected. OTOH, the Dynastars (which should be quicker and more direct since they're narrower and have a short radius) feel vague, disconnected, and slow to hook up. The bindings are the Look PX12 system binding. I tried sticking a pad under my toe binding and it seemed like the feel improved.
Is this my imagination? Could there be other reasons? Do I just need to get more forward regardless? I haven't tuned the Dynastars; is it possibly a tuning issue with new skis? Any thoughts? The reson I'm pursuing delta is b/c I had this same issue/question w/my Dynastar 4x4's with the same binding.
It's pretty clear that changing delta on the system bindings will be hard-to-impossible, so I'm wondering if 2mm could possibly be responsible or if I should look elsewhere (like my technique, god forbid!).
