I just bought the Gonzales 138 pro model wakeboard today and put 2003 Parks bindings on it. I tightened the claw system down tight, but the botton of the binding plate doesn't touch the board. Is this a problem? The bindings are secure but the plate isn't touching the board in the middle(directly under the bindings), but rather on the sides closer to the claws. Also, I used to ride a 140 Premier or the now the ERA. Anything I should know for my first time out on the Gonzales?

I wouldn't worry about it man. I had a Project with 30/60's and its just because of the continuous/progressive rocker it has. Hyperlite's stiff plates just don't allow your bindings to contour the board. Your premier had a 3-stage so it probably just didn't set on the bend for the 3-stage.

Will my toe to heel response be different given that the bindings in only touching near the claws?

i ride a ricky 138 and 2003 parks, it is a great combo, i love it, and no it will respond different because of the board, but after a few rides the bindings will contour better.

make sure you tighten your bindings after every ride for a while.
