I have a 141 2010 SS Reflex with traditional mounts and just got a 142 2011 SS Recoil with the fastrack mounts. Anyone else notice the widest fastrack mounting position is about an inch (probably slightly more) shorter than the traditional mounts.

I'm not a fan of these fastrack mounts. I demoed a 2012 Slingy today and the bindings slid out from the stance I had set to the ends of the track even though I had tightened them very securely.

^^^ Same here. I was loving it and then noticed my stance had widened every set, and really noticed it after a hard landing and it maxed out.

The funny thing is that I didn't notice it for awhile after it happened. Maybe having a wider stance isn't so bad. I might try it on my own board.

But seriously, this is ridiculous. Not sure how common it is, but it's a huge issue.

I'm 5'9'' and I ride all the way out on my 2012 142 Response so I can't speak to the issue of sliding out... but, I can tell you that ever since I started riding SS I swap out those tall phillips screw heads for little nylon lock nuts. Instead of a screwdriver I keep a ratchet in my bag... way more secure and I don't ever even have to think about them coming loose Great piece of mind when you ride a lot

Now I need to go see if the bindings on my Kine have moved. Maybe I can use that as an excuse for my lousy riding this past weekend!

Youd think that some hyperlite riders wouldve chimed in by now. Im planning on getting a slingshot deck for next season. ive always typically been all the way out anyway so it shouldnt matter, but im considering sizing up to a 144/145. in that case going all the way out might be an issue.

Also, i would think sliding bindings arent going to produce the injuries that a binding coming off would cause.

The 145 SS boards still have the same 26" stance option as the rest of the lineup. I wish it was wider. For some reason the choice is wider at 27".

Those tracks are not great. I bought a snowboard last season with those sliding tracks, and no matter how hard I tighten everything up, they end up sliding around after a while.

Can you post a picture or link to what you're referring to? Mine don't seem to come loose, as I have to loosen them in order to move them back to the correct location after they have moved out.

You got more stance if you use it with the Rad or any other 2011 slingshot binding. I'm pretty hard on my hardware (210 pounds) and never notice any movement. But like on any other board, you got to check and tight your stuff sometime. If you want to fit a pair of d2 on a fast track system, you will loose a lot of stance for sure. It's been made for the new generation of binding, tha's it! Great stuff IMO. I got some complains about the Rad but not about the boards and the fast track system.

I'll take a pic and post it at some point... I'm out of town away from my board for the week. Literally just take the post to ur local Lowe's and find a nylon lock nut that fits and ur good.
