Buying used skis and needing to adjust bindings for shorter BSL

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Looking at some used skis, set up for a 318 bsl. My boots will be around 295 or so. The bindings are marker Jesters. I'm assuming they would have to be completely remounted? How do I know that the new screw holes wouldn't need to be too close to the others? I wouldn't be doing this myself, but I don't want to make a mistake purchase.
Sorry for the dumb questions.

Simple. Your boots are 23mm shorter. Its a simple RE-Mount but slightly more costly than a first time 

because of the Measure Twice - Cut Once calculations for a ski-tech in a ski-shop.

Line the boot up with the ski-centre and then binding up with the boot And evade the holes by 10-12 mm. You don't have to be exact with boot/ski- centre:  FWD or Back by 10 mm will be fine.

Perhaps you can move only the toe back, while moving the heel FWD in it's track. Not a big problem.

Depends on how long the ski is and what mounting point they are currently on.  Ordinarily, I wouldn't bat an eye to move a heel up 2 cms on a long ski currently on the line.  Most skis do just fine at +2.  However, if it is a shorter ski, already at +1 perhaps not.  Moving the toe back does more to compromise the integrity of the ski than moving the heel up does.
