tomPietrowskiYep if you choose to change bindings you will certainly need to move the mount point and on a symmetrical ski like the imfamous that will not be great. If I was you I would just try to buy a new heel from marker and keep the griffons. The fks are not any better really so stick with what you have.
TucksI'm Going to call bullshit on this. You may be able to get away with mounting around the existing holes although its tough to say without knowing mount point and where on the track the heels were mounted. OP in response to your initial posting you will have to drill new holes if you switch from marker to rossi…the holes do not overlap to a point of reusing them. Honestly, another set of holes is not that big of a deal…yea it is unfortunate but it is what it is. I have a feeling you may even be able to get away with mounting in the exact spot you were at before but if you need to go back 1 etc it is not a big deal and I bet you wouldn't even notice.
In response to the comment that fks aren't even better, well that is totally preference but I think I can say that a majority of freeskiers out there will agree that a fks is better than a griffon. There is a lot of plastic in griffons and there are several known "fail" areas on those skis including the back arm, plastic plates, brakes, and the slidable afd pad. The jester and jester pro I have a better track record and are known to be a little more burly even though they still have a similar construction to the griffon. I would say if you are interested in keeping the same holes then maybe just upgrade to either jester and you may find you have more success.
rozboonThe rear 2 holes on the toepiece match up. The front 2 are far enough away (~1cm) to re-drill. Heel is completely different. Changed a pair of skis from Jesters to FKS, both at centre, no problems.
