M26 bindings screw configuration

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 

Hello,

 

We have a pair of skis second hand skis and we need to replace broken M26 bindings on them.

Does anyone know which Marker branded bindings, or series of Marker bindings have the same screw configuration as the M26 bindings?

 

Thanks,

Welcome to Epic.  

No current Marker binding has the same screw pattern as the old M26, sorry.   There have been several generations of updates since those were on the market.

How old are the skis and how much do you like them?  Would you consider having the old screw holes filled and a nice shiny new pair of bindings mounted on these skis?

They are Völkl skis - about 10 years old I think. I'm not really that attached to them, but I would like to use them as they are my only skis. (we picked them up second hand).

We are considering buying second hand (new) bindings to go onto them (M 10.0 JR. Comp EPS bindings) and then drilling new holes and filling the old ones in. We really know next to nothing about skis though and I would be worried that we would muck it up somehow.

Is there a reason you would be using Junior bindings?    That binding should be able to fit an adult boot, so it's not a no-go.   

Get a pro to do the work- it's a small fee, comparable to the price of one lift ticket and relatively anxiety-free.

If that ski has a M26 on them, I would say they are closer to 20 years old than 10...I count the M26 was even indemnified 10 year go...meaning it was deemed unsafe even then. No ski the M26 was mounted on is worth skiing today.

I'm 15 years old, so I thought they might be appropriate to use for me?

I wasn't really asking about your age - I was asking about your boots, whether they are junior boots or not-  I suspected not.

I'll tell you that they are even older than that.  I purchased M48R in 90-91 and they were last years model at the time so I got a deal. The M#6 series was even older.

 

So I'm going to guess 25years.

Yeah, Philpug was trying to say that 10 years ago no shop would have accepted a pair of M26s for mounting onto a new ski so the ski has to be older than 10 years.  

 

I had M46s on my Elans in '89

Hey there,
Sorry it's taken me so long to reply back.
We took the skis into a ski shop and they fitted the new bindings for me.
Despite the age of the skis, they turn really nicely on our snow and am really happy I with how the bindings preform. smile.gif
Thanks for all your help

Sounds good.   Would it be rude to ask where you ski?

Not at all.
I ski at the two humble Tasmanian (Australia) ski fields - Mt Mawson and Ben Lomond
Which have now both finished the ski seasons frown.gif
Nothing too flashy

Yeh, somehow I thought you must be down south.    And-- how was the season?

It was really good. It was the longest season we have had in Tassie in about 30 years. Plenty of weekends spent on the slopes! smile.gif
