Introduction Dear Skier, Congratulations on your purchase of a new GOODE PowerShellTM 4 Binding System! The patented GOODE PowerShellTM 4 features a new releasable G-10 composite plate, hard shell boots, and an adjustable spring system (available on the double boot model). At GOODE we started from the ground up to design a water ski boot system that increases edge power, control and comfort. Water ski boots must perform three functions: (1) hold your foot to the ski; (2) provide control; and (3) release your foot during a bad fall. The tighter you make rubber boots for increased control,...

This material has incredible holding power, about 35 lbs. per square inch. When pressed together, hundreds of mushroom-shaped stem interlock with one another.

Ski Binding Adjustment Water skis are extremely sensitive to binding placement. Our testing shows that the best binding locations are listed in our Water Ski Technical Manual and updated on our website. However, you can easily test different binding locations with thePowerShellTM system. Most rubber bindings only allow for adjustments of 5/16 (.312) forward or backward. The PowerShellTM system allows for micro adjustments forward, backward and side to side. When first "dialing-in" a new ski, you should check to make sure your bindings are in the correct position before adjusting your fin....

3.) With your hand, pull up on the plate, breaking it away from the ski. 4.) Reposition the PowerShellTM binding plate to the desired location. 5.) Re-snap the PowerShellTM binding plate to the ski by pressing them firmly together. Use a rubber mallet and 12" PowerShellTM dowel rod to fully lock the Inter-LocTM together by tapping on top of the binding plate. The 12" PowerShellTM dowel rod should be used in areas where it is difficult to reach with the rubber mallet. When pressed together, hundreds of mushroom-shaped stems interlock.
