Mounting Marker Comps on This plate?

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 

 

Does anyone know the BSL range for this plate's hole pattern? I tried looking for the tech manual, but no dice. Trying to mount Comps and I'm not certain of the range.  Thanks in advance.

About 260 to 350mm

Thanks Phil, I realized I didn't ask the right question.  What I meant to say was does anyone know the range of each set of holes for the toe and heel?  For instance, if I'm a 305, I'm not certain which holes to use.

It depends where you want your boot center! At 305 you have some flexibility to move it around fore/aft. On a 285 bsl I normally use the front holes on the heel and the second ( from the center) on the front as I like to be forward of center. Iirc for a 305 it is the second set on the heel and second set on the front for boot center. Try it and if wrong, no big deal, takes about 20 seconds to move toe or heel

That's very different from what I have.

I set the 20's on the middle of three holes for the toe and, I believe, the fourth on the heel.  I see now that I have some choice as to mount +/- 

 

On a side note, the plate is on a '12 Blizzard WC GS magnesium in a 176 and it was the most fun I've had on skis in a while.  The acceleration of the ski was surreal.  Felt like I was hitting the gas pedal on a ferrari.  Incredibly fun.  great size and strength, very smooth, and I think I could feel the torsional strength of the snub nose model, i think, need a few more days on it.  Really fun though.  I've been on older fis skis, but none like these.  

 

Thanks for your help Gents.

that sounds about right.  the Blizzard WC GS is a terrific ski and all the ones I have had have had super fast bases.  The marker plate works really well on them

The marker plate with the FS arms (blizzard specific) works great for the 11/12 models.
I took one off and replaced it with the normal marker piston WC plate and there's a noticeable difference, the skis are much softer and unstable. Good free skiing but not in the gates.
That said, the new specs are IMHO much better skis than the 11/12 models even if they don't have the FS arms anymore.
