Demo binding (Tyrolia SP120) play / slop before inserting boot. Be concerned?

post #1 of 4

Got a pair of demo clamps -- Tyrolia SP120 's -- on my rock / crud skis Volkl Karma 185s. Prior to inserting my boot there is noticeable wiggle / play / slop in the toe piece. A mm or two left/right (towards the edge of the ski). With the boot inserted and forward pressure properly adjusted this play disappears.

I road them last year this way. They still released when they should've and not prior.

Is pre-entry play worth worrying about or am I just being silly? A buddy gave me a set of Look PX12s and am wondering if it is worth the money to remount. Or just save them for a future project?

Slop is inherent in demo bindings, a reason why the aren't recommend. Put the PK12's on, you will immediately see a performance difference in the skis. Use the PX12's now..and when the skis die, use them on the next pair.

I agree with Phil, we have a bunch of SP120s, they all do that to some degree. Once clamped-in, no problem.  Definitely change out the binders for a more responsive pair...more feel underfoot and a less isolated connection will perk up your skis!

Phil has spoken. I'll be dropping off the sticks and PX12s to get mounted the first day I go to the hill (hopefully Luv is open Friday next week!) since they have a very reasonable re-mount rate of just $35.
