What bindings do you use.

Do the rear find adjust or are they non adjustable.

Phantoms on the triumph and animals on the X/SL.

Double booted... and yes I can adjust.

Are there any tricks to adjusting the animals? There is one on the ski I picked up and I've never had a boot before. I started to back out some screws and they were a lot longer than I expected so I just put them back in case they were holding more together than I knew. I would like to open it up a little, I can barely get my hand in there. I know they are supposed to be snug but jeeze.

You can move them forward or back... what were you thinking of doing... You can also make the fir extremely snug... a feel some here did not like in case of falling. There's no adjustment on the angle of the lower leg.. unless you keep the back loose... how long was the screw?

I am wanting to open it up a little, the strap that comes around the front has a couple of different holes where it attaches to the base. These were the screws i messed with and they were 1.5-2".

I finally had a good day on the course last night. Kyle had me (reluctantly) slow the boat to 30 mph to fix my issues. Set #1, didn't do bad, but only completed 1 of my 6 passes. 2nd set, I nailed it - 6, 5, 5, 5, 6 and 6 buoys.

The differences:

1. More strength as I am skiing more

2. Softer knees into the pre-turn and buoy

3. Rolling the ski from the outside edge, to the inside edge in the pre-turn / turn

4. Straight arms on the offside pull to 2 4 and 6, which got me there earlier, wider and eliminated the bus turns

And the best advice Kyle gave me last week - don't give up - scrap it out... if you make a mistake, keep skiing, you'll be surprised how much time you can make up.

I am BLISSFULLY SORE today and feel badarse!

This year has been crappy for me. -35 are tough, I'll run some sweet ones but most are scrappy, only looked at -38 once and managed to get around 3 ball. Hopefully this warm weather will stick around so I can ski in some water warmer than 63 degrees.

Finally got out last night for the first time since I broke my ankle last August in a bad OTF crash. Felt great to finally ski again. Took a little while to getting my sea legs back, but was able to run some 32's with a soft 34 pull. Late ice out this year has us way behind last year, but I am feeling great about the season.
