Binding and Rear Toe Plate Location

I just recently purchase a new ski and I've never had to deal with positioning the binding and RTP before. I used to ski on a Connelly Revolution of which the adjustable binding and RTP was fixed in one position. Should I set the skis side by side and try to place the binding and RTP based the there location on my old ski or is it just trial and error? Thanks for your help.

Trial and error. Minor repositioning can make huge difference in performance. (At any ability level)

Plus, who's to say the old ski had the bindings in the correct position.

Does your new ski have Inserts for the bolts?? What ski is it? The manufacture more than likely has specs for binding placement..

It's a 2003 Connelly F1 and it does have inserts for the bolts. How would I go about finding these specs?

Thanks for your help guys!

Yeah, give the Nicholls folks a call. Schnitz probably has some binding placement info on his board, too. You may have to sift through some fin tweaking stuff to get there though.

To me, this forum is about love of inboard boats. It is about the sharing of information and, on a good day, some humor. It is not about post count, brand of boat, or any other superfluous labels that lend themselves to a false sense of superiority. Please, respect one another, try to pass on accurate information, and keep your eye on the ball.

I red once that all the way forward for beginners,in the middle for intermediates,And all the way back for the Big Boys.
After reading I put mine as for forward as I could.
But that was three year ago,I think I might start moving them back.
With I bindings forward the ski should a little more easy to handle, and more forgiving.(I think)
