Hello. I just bought a pair of Head Supershape magnums with Tyrolia SP 130 demo bindings. They have a plate on them also, I think it is a power plate 9 just looking at the picture from the Tyrolia website. Other than the screws and hardware that makes them easier to adjust are these just a demo version of a regular binding? Are they a decent long term binding or should I swap them out for a regular binding? Thanks.

The SP130 is one of the better Demo bindings. It is the Demo model equivalent of the Mojo 15, FreeFlex 17 or Railflex RF 14. It features the Tyrolia "Race" toe as used on World Cup bindings.
The demo versions is slightly heaver and has more lift than the Mojo 15. It has about the same amount of lift and weight as the FreeFlex 17, but does not offer the FreeFlex feature.
These are probably mounted on the stock CP 13 plate. I would keep everything as-is as long as the bindings pass a torque test at a ski shop.
