Hi all

After having used my sparks a fair bit now i have a few (small) probs, any advice is welcome

To get my best front foot stance of 21 degrees with a central overhang toe and heel i end up with the pucks too far apart for the pin to go through, and the front of the binding hangs over the toe edge a bit and causes drag in heavy untracked snow!

I have size 11 feet so not massive, any one else got this problem i thought about sanding the front of the puck down to allow the pin to pass through.

Cheers

Jim

Make sure the pucks are mounted correctly (a vs. b depending on the angle). The mounting tool has a hole that should be centered on the inner edge, it sounds like that isn't the case.

my mounting tool was a bit shonky. I ended up tightening up the puck screws most of the way, then sliding the voile slider over the top, putting in the pin, which pushed the pucks together enough that the spark pin would slide in smoothly.

Also Jim, you can do some fore and aft adjustment where the backplate bolts onto the baseplate.
