    Forward pressure compendium thread

    UNDER CONSTRUCTION

    PIC REQUEST LIST

    Since everyone is hip to #mounttheirownfuckingskis, I figured it’s well past time to have one thread where you can easily reference correct forward pressure settings for pretty much every binding out there. In other words, shitloads of pictures, but should be easy to search. Will add pics as I get them, I’ll post requests for pics we need to add for those that have bindings I don’t.

    SOME BINDINGS HAVE VERY FINICKY FORWARD PRESSURE ADJUSTMENTS. If you know of a post in another thread that describes it in greater detail, PM me a link and I’ll add it in.

    Will try to keep this in alphabetical order to simplify things. Rebranded bindings (4frnt, volkl, nordica, etc) will list under original manufacturer’s heading, will add rebrands as a sidebar in the headings.

    Aged out/non-functional. Send them to me immediately for appropriate disposal.

    Sweet thread!
    This is an example of a feature that works just fine on TGR Forums...until someday when ZomblibulaX quits being the "curator" and then people stop posting more photos. My website could merely link to threads like this (and therefore not steal traffic away from this thread), but also my website could archive this data in its own database, so later if this thread ever gets "abandoned" or images start disappearing, then maybe at that time my website could take over and start serving that preserved data.
