Bindings for Fischer RC4 skis

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I just picked up a pair each of the Fischer Worldcup RC4 SL and GS models. I was considering buying some Atomic SX11's for all-mountain skis and i came across a great deal. Got both race skis for 500 total. Anyway...

In the past I have skied on the Volkl/Marker setup and never had any problems or complaints. I am curious if there is a good racing setup that allows me to shift the location of the binding slightly without redrilling (also allow for the refitting of different size boots). I believe Atomic has something similar to this (Varizone?). It doesn't appear that either Marker or Fischer(Tyrolia) have a race binding setup that can pull this off. Any suggestions on racing bindings?

Well, to my knowledge, Atomic is the only binding that allows you to move the entire mounting position. If you're not keen on those, what you could do is drill a couple of sets of holes in your plate, so you can remount to try stuff out. That or get a pre-drilled plate, and its corresponding bindings, like Rossignol or something.

I bought a pair of Tyrolia race bindings early in the season from Racestock Sports in Waterbury Vt. Great bindings (I think they are identical to the Fischers except for the name)! I think they were about $200. You might also try Cupolo Sports (listed on this website under Ski Shops). They seem to have great deals on a variety of top notch equipment.

Thanks arcadie.

I knew Fischers were manufactured by Tyrolia, but Fischer extends their warranty on the ski to two years if you mount Fischers bindings. That's why i am interested in getting Fischers if possible.

This time of year, the bargains - and they can be significant - are to be found on brands that are making significant changes in their cosmetics or their line generally. That's why you can pick up brand new 2003-04 Atomic binding (for example) for $100 or so. I don't know about Fischer or Tyrolia. There sure seems to be a lot of inventory-dumping of Fischer skis, but I don't know if that tells you anything about bindings.

OK, so I am now a little confused. I bought a pair of Fischer RC4 Worldcup RC's in the 175cm R16m length for $40 yesterday. I bought them more as a dare because I don't race, but some of my friends do. I am a Patroller at a resort in Upstate NY, where the snow is very hard. I thought this would give me something else to screw around on.

Now, I don't know what bindings to get for this. FlowFlex or FreeFlex? What's the difference, and how do I know what will fit? It has a lifter plate on it, but has only been drilled once, and the skis basically look like they had one season on them. They are older than the '07/'08 ones according to Fischer's website. These things are bright yellow with some black here and there.

I would prefer to buy something less than $100 because these are a novelty anyway. Thanks!
