"Binding Adjustment" fee for Demo Skis

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

Is it typical, rare or unheard of for a shop to charge a "binding adjustment" fee for demo skis (which can pile up if you swap out skis several times in the same day).  I haven't demoed in years but when I did I never paid anything but the somewhat high (but justifiable) demo ski rate.

If you pay for the demo, i would think the binding adjustment is part of the price.

I've done this many times at Park City, up by Summit House, which is on the hill.
Fill out height/wt/ability once to determine settings, swap as many as you like.
i gave the guy there a few bucks at the end of the day (beyond the demo $$)

if the shop is off hill, or the typical behavior is take out one pair for the whole day,
then they might have a case.  but sounds bogus

 That's bogus. The whole idea is to demo 2-3 or more skis and buy the one you like from the shop. Where was this? Vail?

 That is unusual. Should be part of the initial demo fee.

I have never heard of that before, and I've demoed a lot of skis.

"No thanks.  I'll do them myself - and by the way, do you happen to have your lawyer's name and address handy?" 

(No brickbats, please - I'm actually very anti-litigation.)

I've never heard of that either.  Is this something you actually saw somewhere, or just a theoretical discussion?
