Please forgive my lack of technical knowledge and terminology. I have about 6 days skiing this year on new Volkl AC50s with the new integrated IPT Wide-Ride binding. I seem to have to work (slightly) harder to stay forward and get that nice pressure on the ski-tips than I did in the past. I am told that the IPT Wide-Ride binding is "flatter" than the traditional Marker bindings of the past (by how much?). I am thinking of experimenting with a shim under my boot liner to increase the forward lean. I can't see any downside to trying this out because it does not permanently modify anything, but I wanted to run this past the gurus here before I started to experiment, as I am limited to about 20-25 skiing days this year.
