Here is a question I never thought I'd have to ask.
Back story first:
Great morning! Both a Special Edition DPS 99 Pure, and their new bindings, Trab Race, @ 140g, showed on FED EX this morning.
Rushed them both over to my local shop where i've had a dozen skis mounted, three of them different and esoteric race bindings, other shops in our area likely never see. Only minor problems to date. Seems they hadn't seen the Trabs either..which is just a Dynafit clone and uses Dynafit race jigs.
Well, I ran out of luck today. They miss mounted the heels, and my boots won't go in. No way now to use the binding I had intended for this project. Can't even redrill them and keep my mid sole mount point.
We are talking $1800 @ retail for the set up. And the most expensive and deliberatly choosen rig I have ever put together. I waited almost a year to get this pair. A month cash out from order to delivery.
I understand people make mistakes. Not a big deal as long as it is handled appropriately.
Here is my delima.
First, it is a Special Edition ski (bright green) and not likely to be replaced with the same.
2nd....I wouldn't have bought the same ski in the stock color of bright orange.
Not a fan of multiple holes in my skis. Even less so in THIS ski.
What would you do in the same situation?
I'm actually more pissed that I have to wait till they open at 10AM tomorrow to even pick up my boots, during what is likiely the last big winter storm cycle this year. Not getting to ski this last storm on the new skiis? Man, that is REALLY insult to injury :)
Anyone have a easy answer?
