I've been considering expanding my quiver and buying last years RX8. It seems like a great option for NY/VT mountains and they can be had for pretty cheap. I plan on investing in new boots next year when I graduate from school and have a job to afford a custom setup. Right now I'm on Atomic Lite 7's in 27.0.
My question is how easy can the Railflex binding system be adjusted to different sole lengths? If I go with a 26 on my next boot, or a different boot company with different sole length, can the bindings be adjusted to any new length? I've never bought skis that came with bindings and an integrated system before, so I'm not how much adjustment room there is. I assume that because the bindings aren't mounted on these systems with the same drilling procedure as flat skis, that they can be adjusted to any length. True?
The integrated Fischer system makes what you describe a piece of cake...swapping out boots is easy. Not quite as easy as the Marker motion dial system on my Allstars....but very easy. You have to take the Fischer bindings off to reset them.
BTW I have mine set in the forward most of the 3 positions. No reason to experiment, perfect for the east!
My railflex RX 8's are 175s. I also have 170's with flat mount bindings.
Fantastic ski, enjoy!
