Volkl 724 Pro/Marker Mounting Plate questions

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hello from an epicski newb. I am probably asking a perfectly stupid question in my first post, but after searching the archives a bit and not quite finding the answer (probably poor searching skills on my part), here goes:

Just got a great deal on a pair of Volkl 724 Pros, 191cm, unmounted 04/05 models, and they come with the Marker Piston mounting plate thingy.



I am a loyal Salomon binding user and not a big fan of Marker. Here is my 2-part dufus query:

1) Can I mount my Salomon Z12 Ti's on that plate?

2) Any recommendations on the mounting point? Do I just center that piston thing under my boot?

Background: I'm 6'2" 190#, live in Tahoe, ski about 70 days a year and mostly ski fat boards yadda, yadda, yadda. During this year's humble snowfall totals I've been finding myself running the groomers more than in the last 5 years combined. Thus, I wanted to get a dedicated on-piste ski to rip the early morning 'roy. Thanks in advance for any feedback.

Another gratuitous shot of the plate:



If I am not able to mount Salomon bindings on this, should I just take this thing off? Thx~

I am as much of a Salomon loyalist as anyone, I have have close to 2 dozen pair of Drivers myself. Personally, I am unimpressed with the new Z series, IMHO they remind me of glorified Quadraxes. I have mounted Salomons on Atomic Neox plates and they works. I thien switched over to Neox's anyway.

I really don't think the newer Markers deserve the bad rap that was set up from the older one. If I were you, i would just put some Markers on these and go ski.

Cheers Phil. Yeah, I hear you on the Z12's, hopefully they won't turn out to be lipsticked Quadraxes.

I've always been a 914/916 guy myself, but I when I saw the weight on these things my eyes bugged out of my head. To make matters worse, they came up on SAC for like $100 and I pulled the trigger. Now I'm like, well, if they fit on those plates.................
