View Full Version : Yay! My new Factory Prime arrived!

Hooray! My 2001 FP arrived from eBay. I bought it in brand new never ridden condition from a guy in SLC. No more faking it, setting the bindings on my Burton Custom on at 45 degrees each!

Congrats on your new board. 45 degrees front and back sounds a little conservative. I've always setup my bindings as decided by the width of the board. My binding angles are decided by placing the toe and heel right on the board edge without any boot overhang or underhang. This usually means the front binding has a slightly greater angle than the back binding. Check out the Bomber article "How to Setup Your Plate Bindings
by Jack Michaud".
I'm sure that lots of people decide that greater angles and lower angles work best for them too. No binding angle polls please.

I will definitely have to set my bindings more aggressively with this new board.

Jack Michaud has an excellent article on setting up your bindings (http://www.bomberonline.com/articles/setup.cfm). Also check out the welcome center (http://www.bomberonline.com/articles/welcome_center.cfm) for lots of other goodies...

Congrats on your good fortune! I have the same board and you will love! I got rid of my race plates and threw on the bomber TD bindings. What a huge different! The board is more responsive and stable in the turns!
I feel your 45 degrees angles settings are not good. Try more up to 54 or 58. I have 64 front and 62 rear. They work the best for me. Don't forget the stance width between the bindings too. Those settings are also very important to consider. Good Luck and happy trails!:cool:

I'd also like to congratulate you on your new board, it should be awesome and I hope you have fun with it.
And in thrillkil's defence, I read his posts as saying that he used to set his bindings at 45 degrees, on his old board, (a burton custom) and for his new board he's going to ride the appropriate angles.
