Swapping bindings between two sets of skis? Good idea or not?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi Epic community,
I'm toying with the idea of swapping bindings between a pair of Kastle FX94 with Attack13 demo bindings and Line Sir Francis Bacons with Marker Griffons.
After reading some threads discussing mounting position on the SFBs, Iam interested in experimenting with moving the bindings back. I bought the Attack demo bindings on the FXs with this thinking in mind, but never bothered moving them since they skied so easy to begin with. The griffons are standard bindings though and can't be moved without remounting.
Since I know where I want my FX94s mounted, would it be a good idea to have them swapped so I can play with position on the SFBs?
Are there any drawbacks or risks I should be aware of?
Let me know if there's any other info I left out.

Most people don't recommend drilling more than two sets of holes and you need to make sure the holes are a cm or two apart.  You can print out some paper binding templates to experiment with if you want.

Make sure your printer is set to print "full size".

You should be fine, but I would agree with Utagonia in saying you should experiment with the paper jigs at least before drilling new holes.  Those bindings have pretty different hole patterns, but you might end up having to move the bindings forward or back, which depending on your ski style, might or might not be something you'd want to do...

 

As far as ski structural integrity, drilling a second set of holes is not that big of a deal.  Just make sure the previous holes are plugged properly to ensure no moisture works it's way into the core of your skis.  Many people will tell you three sets of holes is okay, but I would avoid it whenever possible.

The Attacks are on tracks. Hey, that rhymes. The question is, would Tyrolia sell you an extra set of tracks? I doubt it so buy two sets, mount both skis and just swap the toe & heel assemblies.
