Just keep adjusting those bindings

Postby platypusjones » Mon Feb 16, 2015 6:49 pm

Hey all,

New here, quasi new to tele as well. I recently got into telemark and fell in love and decided to go shopping for a setup. Ended up buying some nice boards and a pair of G3 Targa T9s. This is almost 100% my newness to all this, but in the 5 days I've skied them I've had to adjust the bindings almost every time sometimes after taking lunch as well. Is this the norm? Tried turning to Google but not a lot of help there.

Thanks for entertaining my newb question!

Unscrew the cables, add teflon tape, and re-install. You should be good to go. If you want to go gorilla on it, you could put on some Vibratite VC-3 (red goo) -- put on a very small amount, wait 10 minutes so that it forms a resin, and re-install (they definitely won't move after that).

x2 on the teflon tape. Are the bindings new? I've noticed a break-in period on most bindings of a few days. I'll admit my experience is with 3 pin cables, hardwires, O1s, Hammerheads... basically anything but Targas, but it doesn't surprise me.

Also, Welcome to the forum!

Thanks guys!

I've skied on them about 5 days, so it could be break in but they seem to vary very greatly mostly on the larger side. I'm going to try out the Teflon tape and see how that works out.

Cheers,
