hi all. new to the forum. let me preface with a few comments, i know binding adjustments are extremely important and should be done by a trained tech otherwise bad things might happen. i'm usually on a tight budget when it comes to equipment. buy used and hold onto for many years.
just bought a used pair or volkl mantras mounted with tyrolia sp120 demo bindings. don't laugh, my boots are rossignol r900 that are about 25 years old. they have always served me well. but now, they don't click in tight. thinking my ancient boots are the issue, but just want to confirm. i have the binding adjusted for the bsl and forward pressure seems to be correct per the tech manual. my boot heel is floating a few mm above the heel cup of the binding. thinking they should be tight.
tech manual calls for a boot heel height of 31 mm, mine measures about 28 mm. trying to determine if my ancient boots are the likely problem or if the bindings are the issue.
