guys, read post #14 on this TGR thread.....those of you with Mantra's who already had them mounted may want to think about checking the bindings because according to this guy who says he's associated with Volkl, the sticker on the skis that said to drill down 3.6mm is WRONG and Volkl is telling people to drill down 4.1 insteadhttp://www.tetongravity.com/forums/s...ad.php?t=29406

I'm not a sales rep, but yes, I am linked to the company. I mainly lurk here, enjoying all the posts and wildy different opinions. I've only posted myself to clear up any specific questions relevant to our gear - and I try to do so in an unbiased manner as possible.
Regarding the shops and warranty, there are very few Mantras out there at retail right now - less than 30 pair, and they're at a small handful of shops. We've communicated to those shops that the 3.6 marking is an error. Mounting with a 4.1 would not void a warranty - quite the opposite, actually. You're more likely to hurt the ski if you try to force the screws through a 3.6 hole in the titanal. Though it will usually work, you can volcano the titanal if you're careless.
