Look PX12 2012 binding mounting

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I bought these bindings and the shop mounted them on my sexy new Blizzard Black Pearls with a little space between the binding and the ski. They aren't fully "flush". Is that correct? Can anyone explain why?

Let me get more specific: Look PX 12 Jib Medium Ski Bindings (90mm Brakes) 2012

Post a pic if you want to get a more definitive answer, but most likely no, that is not correct. There are multiple reasons why it could be the case, hole not drilled deep enough, wrong screw used, simply not screwed in far enough (probably the most likely), etc. Since it was a shop mount, just bring 'em back and let them fix it.

I've had the exact same thing happen before, and it's taught me to take a closer look at the work before leaving the shop. There are a lot of sloppy shop techs out there but there are also plenty of very good ones. I simply use it as a data point in deciding who gets my business in the future.

Thanks. Lesson learned. They did a good job last time but different tech this time. You're right, I should have looked closer.

Hey, jaobrien6, I notice you are in Seattle. I just moved to Woodinville this winter and clearly my local shop isn't terrific. Where would you recommend.?

The one I'd probably recommend that is reasonably close to you is Gerk's in Redmond.  I haven't had a lot of work done there personally because they're a little out of the way for me, but I know people that live over on the east side that have had a lot of stuff done there and have always had good things to say about them.  Based on recommendations on here, I steered a buddy there for new boots and he was very happy with the bootfitting that they did, for what that's worth.

 

If that happens to be where you took your skis, well, not sure what to tell you. :)

Thanks, I'll give gerk's a try next time.
