As for sportchek.... Well yeah, um.... "Head Tech" means f-all.... That guy could have never been on snow in his life, but has done all the in-house training..... sometimes you get lucky and get a tech that is well into the sport, other times you'll get a hockey nut!
Yeah if that's the case, so why so many posts here saying get the DIN value torque tested...
No he's the head tech of whole area, like 5-7 stores, he's the manager for the mounting and bindings and other tech stuff.
Well I'm really not that worried about DIN release values, they are probably within +- 0.5-1.0 of the actual number, I don't think my 4.5 value would matter that much if it was 5.0 or 4.0 anyways. I'm not doing anything but green slopes...
I just want to be self informed and also I have not only 1 pair of boots, I have several and they are different sole length, main boot is 297mm, another is 306mm. So if I switch I would need to adjust the forward pressure/sole length heel adjustment.. I don't want to run to a store everytime, especially if they don't even have anything to test this, so I just wanted to know what they check or how they measure for the change.
