Help with Speedplay pedal problemtommyboy

Bought new Carnac road shoes, new Speedplay cleats and adapter for Speedplay X2 pedals. My shoes disengage way too easy now for some reason..just think about heel out and I'm out of there! Never had this problem before with Sidi shoes. No real help from Speedplay tech support..have been to 4 local luck... shoe do does same thing on other bikes with Speedplay..old cleats still function properly..any one else with this problem? Any solutions/ideas... ready to junk these and go back to Looks.. thanks for any ideas...

Is the spring binding? Maybe when you engage the pedal, the spring is getting stuck (not going into the grooves) and allowing you to disengage more easily... I don't thing you have the sides reversed, as that tends to make entry more difficult, I think...

I am running Carnacs (Ellipses) with Speedplay X2's using the Carnac adaptor, and have no problems, so I imagine it's a setup thing... (unless I just got lucky!)
