Looking for confirmation about binding compatibility...

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I recently bought a pair of Fischer Superrace skis for my daughter online. They were listed as "rail" skis, without bindings. I guess rail doesn't mean the same thing to everybody, because they came today and instead of what I call a rail, they have a plate.

This throws a monkey wrench into my plan to pull her current FJ7 Rail Bindings (the kind that actually slide on a rail to fit various boot soles as the kids grow) from her old skis and use them on these skis. I know a little bit about drill patterns, but am not expert enough to know immediately what pattern came pre-drilled on this plate. The plate is marked FS / RS xxx , so I figure I'd ask here for some guidance on what bindings would be compatible.

If I get it right, FJ = Junior, FS = Regular Service, RS = Race Service, and RC4 = something more like "race stock"? And then there's the brake codes to worry about - based on the way their bindings are listed on their website, I'm pretty sure this ski needs the 78 [J] brake (ski is a 110-68-95).

But before I pull the trigger and buy a particular binding I thought maybe someone on the forum here might be able to confirm which ones will work. Other promising options that Fischer that might be sold under Tyrolia or Head brands -- I understand they are same as Fischer -- also would be of interest...

(as an aside, I'd love to get any comments about whether there is an actual different guts between Tyrolia, e.g., the SL7's, the Fischers, e.g., FJ7's, and the Head bindings from techs in the trade).

So can anyone point me to which binding will definitely work?

Thanks in advance!

TO MAYBE BE A LITTLE MORE CONCISE...

How can I tell whether the particular Fischer plate on this ski is laid out for 92W jig mounted bindings (i.e., FJ7, RC4 Z__, X __, etc.) or something else?

I don't have any actual jigs or I'd just compare...

Thanks.
