||Yea, I have had my eye on a new board for the whole season. Bindings are just the worst offenders... I went to a local Snowboard shop and he tried getting the screw out but he couldnt loosen it at all. So i bought 8 shorter screws and i'm going to ride with three screws tomorrow. I will try the solution Snowj720 mentioned maybe next week sometime. When I do, ill post pictures Win or Fail.

||About the 5150 binding choice, they are pretty terrible... Just waiting for the right Sale to get a whole new setup.

|| I had the same problem, different bindings, same issue though. I had to drill (w/ a really small bit) at an angle towards the lag, it put enough bite on it that I managed to get the screw out. Not pretty, but it worked. I filled the hole w/ a small amount of epoxy and that fixed the spinning lag. [/QUOTE] That actually sounds like a solid plan to get it to stop. did you put the drill bit in at a 45* angle or did you skim the surface. Right about now, ugly is better than a board with no bindings

||By about a millimeter to long, i really should of checked that thanks for your help. any suggestions on how to get the stuck screw out, with the lag that is now spinning?

||yea i understand, ill tighten them with out the plate... and mark to see if they are to long

||The problem with the burton plates is they are to small for the bindings so the teeth don't line up properly between the bindings and the plates
|2/24/2012 10:20:52 PM
||The Issue of the bindings changing angle was fixed... but unlike the burton plates that have groves where the screw goes thru the plate my 50150 is smooth and slides from left to right now

||Hey, I noticed that my 50150 bindings had the wrong plates installed on my board... making them slip and change the angle my feet are set at... I found the original plates that came with the bindings hoping they would fix the problem. Unfortunately when i installed the original plate, I could move the binding around on the board with out much effort... so i tightened the bolts hoping this would fix the problem, but it didn't fix the problem. now i have a lag that is spinning in the board, and wont loosen. Any tricks on how to get this screw undone and any suggestions on how to get my base plate to stop moving?

||Hey, I have been looking to upgrade my whole set up, I cheaped out when i bought my last board and now I'm looking to upgrade. Currently I'm riding an Old Elan 65 Royale with 50/50 bindings and LTD boots. I have been feeling my board out this season trying to see what i want in a board. I want a lighter board, with more pop and shorter overall length. I have been looking at a Burton Sherlock, but I'm still looking any suggestions on size and different boards would be appreciated. About me/my style: I'm 6', 175lbs, boot size 9. I'm not into the park much, I'm more of an ALL mountain snowboarder. Riding glades, fresh powder and hitting jumps on the trial is more my style. Although i need a board that can handle well on groomed and icy conditions
