I have size 10 boot I bought a medium size split30 binding going off of the size recommendation the problem is I cant center boot over the binding it has about a .75 inch over hang on heel edge and about .25inch on the toe. I made all the adjustments I could on the binding end but I just can't center it is it possible I might need a size small binding? Even though size recommendations say small is for size 6-8?

Any input would be greatly appreciated

Have you moved the two plates on the binding backwards toward the heel? This will bring your heel more toward the center of the board. You are definitely a size medium.

Yes the two bottom peices of the binding are shifted all the way back that makes the heal loop pushed all the way forward towards the toe and with all that its still off by that much

With me having so much over hang on the heel leads me to believe the bindings are too big for my boot but wow size small 6-8 if that is the problem that's messed up cause those size est are way off.

I'm in a Burton Driver X in a 10.5 and I have Split30s in medium and think that I might have been better off with large, I really doubt you need a small. It might be worth double checking to make sure you actually have medium bindings and not large by accident.

Had the same issue with a set.
Emailed the brothers and they sent me the instructions to fix.
From memory you do the opposite adjustment of what you think is right and they fit
Took a good hour to sort our.
After you setup a few boards you get the hang of it.

Also some manufactures don't put the binding holes in as per the standard Voile spacing so this can cause issue too.

Good luck, email them for the step by step instruction
