I just recently purchased a pair of Fischer RX8 with the RailFlex binding. The skis have 3 position holes for the binding. Currently I have the bindings set in the center position. What would be the benefit, other than preference of moving them forward or back?
Heh, heh, heh... [img]tongue.gif[/img]
Why not just try it and see? It takes all of a minute to do it (unscrew the center screw, move it, screw it back in).
Usually, farther forward would help the tip hook up faster and may tighten the turn radius. Farther backwards would tend to lengthen the carved radius by moving your weight back. It may
help float in powder.
But really, the Railflex is so simple, it might be fun to just ski a run, switch it, and ski another run. 15mm isn't that far, of course...
BTW, I'm a little jealous. I was hoping to get the RailFlex, but got the flat RX8s and mounted a pair of Marker 1400s. I like gadgets. But, the skis rock with the Markers!
