Posted by: dan cote Apr 8 2006, 06:13 PM

just got a new pair of liquid force union bindings. just wondering if anybody who rides with them or has had the chance to ride them knows how loose or tight they should be. I'm having a hrad time getting them on right now. don't kno if its because their cold or do i need to adjust them more.

any feedback would be appreciated.

Dan, binding lube should help entry, that's what she said. Wear them to the bar, in the shower/tub, out on a date, they're stubborn when new and will break in. With your kiteboarding career (sessions every day), you should have them dialed in like a pair of running shoes in no time. I have a year supply of wakeboard binding lube from my rep days, I'll comp you next time I see you on the water. I just got a pair of the LF Luxury Pimps and slapped those babies on a custom, most beautiful thing I've ever seen!

thanx for the input. its my first season with bindings so wasn't really sure what to expect.

P.S. that's exactly what she said.

I rode those bindings all last year and am going to again this year. Usually can get in them with one hand without the lube. Kuban says his lube is from his rep days but I'd be pretty suspicious when he shows up with a large tube of ass lube.

From my cold water wakeboarding days they cold always tightens the bindings up. The overlays don't stretch as easily. Combined with cold stiff feet it can be a bit challenging getting in them.

Be careful when you are pumping up your kite. With a pregnant wife at home and a tube of lube you never know how he gonna react to someones rear waiving around.

Hey bob ,
How do you like the bindings and whats the benefit, today got bindings installed but that damn gusty west winds messed up the whole picture of trying them on.

Hehe , Tom.

I have a lube from my skiing days and Mark will probably give me some.
