I have a question about setting up RS-1 Bindings with sequence plate. When measuring for the distance from the tail of the ski, where should I be measuring to? I know that with traditional rubber bindings you would measure to the inside of the horseshoe on the binding. So do I measure to the back of the boot? To the little white line on the middle hole of the plate? I am trying to set up the ski as close to the factory settings as possible. I am on a 69" Sixam SS.
In order to measure to that lower line of stitching accurately you have to remove the back boot. This is a good thing, though, because then you can measure from the stitching line to the BACK EDGE of the Sequence plate, and you can RECORD that number. From then on, all you have to do is measure from the tail of the ski to the back edge of the sequence plate and then add your recorded value for a total distance-from-tail. No more messing with the back boot (or "eyeballing") again.

Ahh, come on T.W. us const. types do some our Best work with "Eyeball engineering"!
But, that is a great tip.
Iíve done this before and I think it is accurate especially if you are mounted in holes and not slots.
Stand the ski straight up parallel to a tape measure and use a sprit level to get your reading.
