Just got a new pair of Gotamas, and am thinking about having non-demo bindings mounted for the first time since I was a kid.
Am thinking about getting Marker Griffons (or something similar).
I currently am in the process of transitioning to new boots: my old boots (which I love) have a bsl of 316mm, and my new boots (which are not yet dialed in from a customization standpoint) are 305mm.
Given the extensive customization I may need, I see myself using both boots quite a bit this winter.
Could I mount a Marker Griffon (or other non-demo) binding and be able to slide the heelpiece back and forth enough to fit each boot? Would sliding the heelpiece myself to fit each boot be as easy as doing it on a demo binding (as long as someone showed me how to assess forward pressure on the specific binding?)
Should I mount them specifically for my newer 305mm boot, or would that not allow enough play in the heelpiece? I that case, should I mount them to perfectly fit a boot that was somewhere in between (e.g. a 310mm boot), which would give me enough play in the heelpiece to fit both 305 and 316mm with appropriate forward pressure?
An alternative option would be to just transfer over my Atomic FFG demo bindings from my old Sidestashes, but I've heard many people prefer fixed bindings if possible...
Thanks for the info. I am relatively new to owning/maintaining skis after demoing/renting for many years, so I appreciate any help.
