Blizzard SLR/Marker TP14 Binding questions

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Just picked up a pair of 160cm Blizzard SLRs for my grandson (ex racer) and need to adjust for his new Lange RX130s.  His boots measure 316mm and the increments on the binding are 315mm and 325mm.  When adjusted to the 325mm setting the boot C/L is foward of the hash mark (assume this is the mid point on the ski).  Would not think mounting foward would be a good idea on such a short ski.

 

1.  Is the sidewall hash mark which matches up with the retaining screw for the binding the mid point on the ski?

2.  Should I make the adjustments that put the C/L of the boot closest to the hash mark?

3.  How does this binding indicate proper forward pressure?  Should the screw be flush or are there marks on it?

 

Thanks for any help.  I used to be a certified binding mechanic (in the distant past) and can always take it to my friend's shop but adjusting this seems very simple but without a manual I want to make sure it is done properly.

Set to the 315 then adjust the forward pressure. Which binding is on the ski? A 160 sounds short for a 130 flex 316BLS skier.

Phil,

 

Thanks.  The binding is Marker tp14.  The Lange has a progressive flex and will be no problem despite the stiffness.

According to others the only forward pressure indicator on this Blizzard SLR/Marker setup is the FP screw on the heel piece which should be flush to slightly recessed.  In order to get the 316mm boots centered on the skis I set the toe piece in the 315mm notch and the heel at 325mm.  Tried them both at 315mm and while I could get the FP right there was not enough room for the boot to enter the binding properly.  Setting them both at 325mm was not good either because the boots were too far foward on the skis.
