Hey folks,

I have small spark R&D Blaze's. I am having real trouble getting them on my voile pucks. I think they are lined up right. Is anyone else having this issue? Anyone know a fix?

Thanks,
Jenny

Can you get the binders onto each individual puck (toe, or heel side)?
If so, its time to break out the Voile alignment tool and reset the pucks...

If not, you may need to use some board wax on the pucks, and/or take some very fine sandpaper and "lightly" sand the pucks... CAUTION: Do it a little at a time!!! Look for the seams from the mold used to create the pucks, it will be a slightly raised line on the plastic... This is about all you''ll want to remove with the sandpaper... Otherwise over time you may encounter the opposite problem, loose binders... :shock:

this is a pretty common problem, the sparks are meant to fit extremely tight onto the pucks.
i believe the even send a piece of fine grit sandpaper to sand your pucks down a touch if the need be.
i have also used a little bit of wd-40 to solve the problem.
