WasatchWarrior's thread got me to post this. I have an older pair of Dynastar CrossTi's. For awhile, I thought there was something wrong with them: they really didn't want to pull into the turn the way I thought they should, they seemed hesitant and out of balance. I decided the ramp angle was off; I tried skiing with lifts under the toes and they were slightly better. But since this is a system ski and I could not permanently lift the toes, that solution was only temporary. Finally, I started moving the bindings forward. That didn't really help at all. Then, for no real reason that I can remember, I tried moving the bindings BACK 1 click. Wow!! Voila! Suddenly, the ski came alive. It was more precise, more secure, more willing to jump into the turn.
It seems completely illogical -- isn't the conventional wisdom that moving mount forward will make ski more responsive? But there it is -- at least for me. So....I'm wondering, anyone else had this experience? Anyone want to explain? And finally, just an observation: sometimes, things don't follow conventional wisdom.
