just want to make sure I get this right first time around...

rocking a burton ion size 11.5 us. Is the size Large binding what I want? Looking to preorder and want to get my $hit straight.

also, did Mountain Gear charge you up front for the binding or are they waiting until they're in stock before billing you?

your right anything over a size 11 = large binding size. I believe its the same scale that has been used for their previous bindings.

Mountain gear will not charge you until your bindings are shipped.

Got my blaze mediums the other day and they look pretty sweet. One thing... my boots are 10.5 and 11. My board is 26 wide. It seems I had to open the adjustments out all the way on the ankle straps and most of the way on the tow to get a proper fit... everything near fully extended. I also adjusted the heelcup back to the longest setting but feel the tow of my boot hangs too far out over the edge of the ramp for proper toeside leverage.

If possible I prefer to be more in the midrange adjustment zones of a binding size for a better, more symmetrical fit. Would I be better off with the Large size? Or should I just go out and ride my M's and be stoked about it?

Many thanks, and pray for snow.!

Hey Madman,

I had similar concerns about the toes of my boots hanging too far over the edge of my Blazes. I actually started link on the main bindings forum about this:

viewtopic.php?f=11&t=9671

Most folks seem to think the overhang isn't a big deal. However, I wear a size 9 boot, so they probably overhang a bit less than your 10.5's or 11's. So far, I've opened the ankle strap a few notches to fit the boot better, but haven't done anything to the toe cap. That one seems ok so far. All that being said, I haven't actually put the bindings on my board yet and really dialed them in. That's tomorrow's project. As for getting the large Blazes, the length of the baseplate is actually the same as the medium. The only difference is that the heel area of the baseplate is wider. Seems strange to me, but that's the way it is. Check it out here (Scroll to the bottom of the page and open the "click for product specs" tab):

Good luck man!

I wear Burton Driver X size 11 and the medium Blazes work well.
