Misplaced binding

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Hi guys:

First of all let me introduce myself as this is my first post on this forum. My name is Luciano, I'm from Bariloche in Patagonia, Argentina.

 

Now the question, a few days ago I sent a pair of brand new skis from Alto Valle (a local custom ski manufacturer) to a ski shop to install an also brand new Marker Duke EPF.

 

The problem is that they mounted the toe piece of one ski 5 millimeters (0,2 inches) off center (displaced to the right, check the image)

 

 

Will this be noticeable while skiing?

Other than remount the bindings a few centimeters forward is there any other solution you can recommend me?

 

Thank you very much.

Best regards

Luciano

Ski center is measured from the base, not the topsheet.  I can clearly see that topsheet isn't quite centered on the ski.  Regardless, I've skied worse mounts than that.  You probably won't notice anything under about 5 mms left or right.

 

Those should ski just fine.  Welcome to EpicSki

Personally I would have them mount it again on a new ski, on their own dime of course.

Heh, I've been there! 

 

Well, you've discovered it, so you will notice it. You won't be able to stop thinking about it. 

 

Happened to a friend of mine as well. The only way out of this, is to remove the bindings, plug the holes, and get a different brand or style of bindings that have the screws in different positions, and mount those. 

 

Here's how it probably happened: the jigs they use to drill the holes, have rubber 'feet' on the side. You can flip them over for wide skis. The technician probably grabbed the jig off the shelf with the rubber feet in the wrong position and started drilling. 

 

You need to talk to the ski shop....
