Ski shop won't set DIN higher - Page 4

post #91 of 100

Shops WILL set higher than what is suggested, there is a form for CRS (Customer Requests Setting), it is in the back of most tech manuals. Before you DO set your bindings higher yourself,I would just make sure that they are reacting properly with your suggested setting.

I agree (some will).

 

I want my local shop to set it down 0.5 DIN from recommended and they wouldn't.  Had to do it myself with new skis, new bindings, to see what happens before you start to high (same as your comment).

 

Secondly, read the warranty.  To quote from Look "This warranty extends only to the original user, to whose skis the bindings were mounted .........binding adjusted by a qualified dealer."

 

Soem people are scared of being sued more than others.  Possibly for good reason.

I just brought some skis in yesterday for wax sharpen and binging adjustment; they recommended a 7; however I had it at 7 before with a larger bsl and it was perfect. I asked the guy to set it for an 8; he said no problem and had me just initial on the slip that I wanted it at an 8. I guess it just comes down to the shop.

Do you think your DIN setting played a part in your injury?

I don't think so, one ski realeased as soon as i hit the snow, the other released when i hit a stump.

I guess it's really hard or impossible to design a binding that prevents ACL injury.

Slightly off topic, but i lived in whitefish for 2 years, what shop are you going to? this sounds like Sportsman, but have you gone to White Room in town? those guy are good techs, and i'm sure they would help you out.
