Hello, I'm new here... and fairly new to skiing and gear selection. I picked up a pair of 12/13 opus on ebay a week ago, no bindings. They are used and have been mounted with bindings one time. After reading quite a bit on the web about where to get them mounted, i purchased a pair of bindings at the local shop and asked them to mount them at the reccomended mid sole mark on the skis. I picked them up yesterday, clicked my boots in and noticed the mid sole line on the boot and ski did not match up. The mid sole mark on the boot is 2cm back from the mark on the ski (towards the tale). I went back to the store to inquire. I spoke with a tech, who said that the old binding drill holes probably interfered with where they could mount the new binding (he could not find the person who did the work though). Is this likely, to me it seems that whoever mounted them may have installed them where they thought was best? Would 2cm be about what it would take to clear the old holes and mount the bindings properly? I can't say what the old binding were, the new ones are salomon sth2 16... It seems as though a shop would tell you that they couldn't mount your skis the way you asked when you picked them up, if it was not a mistake. The only answer I got was from someone who did not mount the skis, and I have gone back twice now to talk to the store. I'm looking for some advice as to if this is acceptable. Up to this point I have been calm and have not gotten angry, but am wondering if this is common practice. The tech said that the -2cm mounting should not be noticeable, and made it seem as though it was not worth mentioning. This is my question, is he right? (the only one who would really know about the mounting, and reason for deviation from my request is the tech who did it. The store doesn't seem to care to find out what the tech thinks, and I guess that is the real problem.) Sorry for the long post. If anybody has any suggestions I'd appreciate it. Maybe this isn't poor customer service, but I'm starting to think it is.
