Resurrecting this old thread, hoping someone can help me out. Apologies if this is bad forum etiquette, I don't post on forums very much.
I recently acquired a pair of Outland 87's (by reverse-inheritance from my teen-ager!) :-)
Ski length 165cm and the ski has the adjustable PX12 Fluid binding.
I have adjusted the boot location as far back as allowed by the PX12 Fluid, but it still looks and feels like the boot is too far forward on the ski.
I am planning to remove the PX12 Fluid system binding and replace with Tyrolia Attack 13.
Several testers have reported that following the adjustment instructions for the PX12 Fluid binding (using sole-length grid marks on the track) results in the boot being located too far forward, and have recommended moving boot back anywhere from 2 to 6 cm.
The Attack 13 binding are fixed-location bindings, no adjustment track, they are screwed into the ski, so I will be stuck with wherever the boot placement ends up being. So I have the following questions about installing the new bindings:
If I have the new binding mounted using the mount center point that is scribed on the ski, will the boot end up at the same location relative to the ski as if I had followed the adjustment instructions for the PX12 Fluid (using sole length grid marks on the track)? Or will the boot end up farther forward? Or farther back?
I see someone recommended using the "8" of 178 as the center point, but as I said these are 165's, so that won't work.
I guesss what I'm asking is, is this a case where the mount point marked on the ski actually is in the "correct" location, but the PX12 Fluid system adjustment limits prevent the boot from being moved back to the 'correct" location? Or is the mount point scribed on the ski actually farther forward compared to most other skis in this length range (specifically compared to same-length Rossignol Experience 88 "sister" ski)?
Thanks in advance for any guidance anyone can provide for my binding-swap project!
