Looking for advice on what to ask for in compensation for a binding mis-mount. I took my brand new Fly Stars in to be mounted with my experienced Salomon S914's last week. I had a lengthy discussion with the head tech about where I wanted them mounted. 1 cm back from the obviously marked Mid-Point on the sidewall scale. The scale has a Freestyle point in the front and a Freeride/All Mountain point 8cm back, kind of like a k2 scale. Anyway I went to pick them up tonight, and they were mounted smack on the Freestyle mark. Dead center in the ski, and 5cm forward from where I asked.
The answer isn't as simple as a remove and remount. I did this on my first set of Public Enemies and the ski ended up breaking exactly where the previous toe piece holes were. That time they were only moved 2 cm from the original mount. This time they would need moved 5 backwards. This also presents a problem in that the holes will more than likely be exposed in front of the binding. With the white filler in the holes it will stand out like a sore thumb on the green and black Fly Stars and make them look like isht.
I'm waiting to hear from the shop managers tomorrow. What should I expect them to offer? I sincerely would like the ski replaced, but I'm afraid that is an expensive solution and they may not go for it. However I won't be happy with a simple remount. What do I do?
