Do Marker Comp bindings fit Fischer slalom skis and their pre-installed plates?

Do Marker Comp bindings fit Fischer slalom skis and their pre-installed plates? 

Specifically, I am thinking of putting my Marker Comp M20's on a Fischer RC4 WC SL (2013 or 2014).  These skis come with plate so I won't have to install the Marker Piston Plate. 

I wanted to ask before pulling the trigger on the skis. 

 

Thank you for the help.

No. Fischer, Head, Kastle, and Elan roll with Tyrolia bindings and plates. That said, you might check the hole patterns. No issue about drilling new holes on a plate if they don't come too close to existing.

Thank you.  So if I want to use the Marker Comp M20 I am possibly locked to Volkl, Blizzard, Bomber?  Any other SL skis?

I'm going to disagree with Beyond on the Fischer WC Sl plate. I own a pair (older) and they came with a attached riser plate that is totally flat and can accept a traditional flat mount binding. The plate is made by Head/Tyrolia, but, I don't know it's manufacturer name or number. @Philpug mounted a different pair of skis for me last year and put Tyrolia/Head freeflex binding onto the same style plate. To be clear, it's different from the plate Head puts on most skis sold with Freeeflex bindings.

 

If the OP can post a picture of the plate, it would clear up any confusion. I've no experience with Marker comp bindings or the piston plate.

The answer depends on the plates - I know Fischer WC/masters race skis come with rebranded Tyrolia RDX plates with no predrilled binding mounting holes. You can fit any bindings on them.

All other plates with predrilled holes will only fit the bindings of their own. Binding mounting holes are not universal and mfg/model specific. I haven't seen Fischer skis that come factory mounted with Piston plates. My guess is that they use Tyrolia almost exclusively.

Yes, the current Fischer (Head) adult plate is not a proprietary plate, it is a universal one. I have used that plate on many skis for Epic members such as Living Proof and CGeib.
