I'm just about to mount my first splitboard together, really eager to the get it all working, but I have not received a puck alignment guide with the voile pucks.
I have voile puck set, Spark bindings with LT pin and factory built split. I'm pretty much clear on how to mount all the things together, but I'm not sure how hard it actually is to mount the discs/pucks without the guide. Is there any trick to it? Or should I just keep trying until I nail it and binding start sliding on?

The easiest way I have found to do it is to use a ruler for a straightedge to get the alignment dead on (least amount of resistance). If you have loose fitting bindings change the alignment so the pucks are at slightly different angles from toe to heel side. The measurement from end to end is 7 5/8 from where the heelside backstop hits the puck to where the pin slides in through the hole and slightly rubs against the toe side puck edge. Not a bad idea to make it a hair under 7 5/8. Hope this helps.
