Bad advice. SL skis are pretty picky about mounting point. What works for one manufacturer will not work for all and often the manufacturer's mark isn't right for a skier's personal preferences. I'd check with a local race shop or call Nordica for the measurement. FWIW, Nordica race stock skis are marked on the sidewall in yellow with the recommended mid-sole mark and the serial numbers. You might have luck checking the sidewall... although if they were skied a lot they are probably worn off.
Also note - that if you know what bindings the skis were mounted for you might be able to use a jig to figure out where the previous skier had the mid-sole lined up... BUT with the Nordica plate this is probably a bad idea because of the arrangement of the screws in the plate. It is common to have to push-in or back-out the heel of the binding in order to get certain bindings on the plate. Without asking the previous owner I don't recommend trying this method.
