Just had an experience at a sports shop and am questioning the forward pressure adjustment after I got the stuff back from them.
So, I normally adjust my own skis and my kids skis. A few times, I've taken them into shops to be on the safe side after the fact and was told the bindings did not need to be adjusted so I feel I'm doing ok.
Long story short my kids gear gets stolen first day of ski club so I need to get him set up again fast.
The replacement skis(I already had) had bindings already mounted. K2 Comanche Junior Comp Skis with Marker 7.0 bindings.
When I went to adjust the binding to fit the boot I ended up adjusting the rear binding all the way forward to get a solid fit but there was no more adjustment left. Then I checked the forward pressure as I always do.
I saw that when the boot is in the binding (after adjusting the DIN of course) the indicator line "white" is still behind the rear most range line "green". The below pic is with no boot in the binding but when it is in its not much different if at all.
So...I take it to a shop to have them re-mounted because from what I understand (see above picture) the indicator line (white arrow) should be between the range indicator lines (green) right!!!!??
When I pick them up from the shop they tell me that a remount was not necessary and they just adjusted them. So I have a somewhat intense discussion with the ski tech about forward pressure and he says that since the heal of the binding "moved" when the boot was inserted into the binding that there is enough forward pressure and that the indicator does not have to be in-between the range indicator.
I guess I want to know what you all think. I do not have a good feeling about this.
