so i have 08 atomic urban punx with the marker griffon bindings? whatever the non-bc marker bindings are. but the fuckers mounted my skis off center and i was just wondering if remounting is a good idea?
It depends where they mounted them. If they are quite close to center, than a remount wouldn't exactly work very well, because the new holes would be close enough to the old ones that it may compromise them, thus you would rip the binding off of the ski.
If they are farther back (3+cm) and a center remount wouldn't put new holes near old ones, than I don't see why not. It's just sort of a pain in the ass to mount skis (at least when I do it by hand in my basement) so you just have to make sure it's worth it.
Yeah, bring 'em back to the shop and ask for a remount, and make sure they know EXACTLY where to mount them (I usually draw a line on masking take so they know exactly where to mount them). The skis will be fine with a remount, especially since it's a wood core.

~I could carve off a jump so hard I'd come in forward and take off of it switch~
if they drilled them for a center mount but they are skewed on the ski, the tech must have had the rubber on the jig under the edge on the one side. i have bad news, if you are remounting with the same bsl the holes are going to overlap, and there deffinitly won't be a cm of material inbetween holes, you'll have to go 1 cm back. in this case i would actually go back to the shop, if these are new skis i would suggest new ones. you don't want to sacrifice being at center and havig a shotty mount. then again, as a ski tech i mounted my skogans last year for the 5th time in the toe pieces, and 4th in the heels, all of the holes overlapped and i heli coiled all of them, seriosly all 16 screws, and they are holding on my urban skis still. i would never suggest this to a customer, but its funny if they are old skis let them heli coil them. i shouldn't say this but i trust a properly installed heli coil more then a normal drilled hole. never seen one rip out.
Agreed and this is tough. Don't assume when you bring twins in to be mounted that techs will mount them center. They should ask, and if they don't, I would make sure that you tell them and watch them write it on the ticket. If you told them to mount center and they didn't, they owe you a new pair of skis.
