Grizzly.ButtahI've done a lot of research and I want these. Just wondering if any body else had them and what you thought of them.
http://www.quiverkiller.com here's a link if you wanna look into it more.
Anyway my main concern would be wieght. I'm getting 4frnt YLES and j skis(I'm selling my other skis). So I have dukes for a touring setup but they are super heavy. For days when there's pow I wanna take off weight and put jesters on. Anyway I was wandering if the quiver killer inserts make the ski much heavier or just a little heavier. Would it be worth the purchase?
MuggydudeI agree with most of what you said. Only do it if you are pretty mechanically inclined and good with DIY stuff.
I don't really agree with your statement that they can't be resold? If anything it should help the ski hold its value. The inserts strengthen the area much more than a plug would,and you can still have three good mounts with inserts in a ski. Just have to add an extra 5mm or so between holes, which is very doable. And for example even if the 2nd buyer can't use the first inserts, if he sells them again the 3rd owner might be able to use the inserts for his boot size and not have to drill a 3rd set of holes.
tomPietrowskiThe issue with resale is the holes can't be filled. Like a help coil the insert has to have a bigger hole drilled to insert the insert. This means you can't remove the insert and full the hole like you could a regular binding screw hole.
This is and the extra size of the holes mean you end up with even less remount room. Even more so considering most people mount for 2 sets of bindings not just one. So if you think about it your already buying a ski with two mounts and at least 16 holes which can't be filled. Not many people will spend good money on a ski like that.
MuggydudeYou don't need to fill the holes... They are already sealed after you install them. It's basically a plug that doubles as a mount possibility. And as I said before they will help maintain the mounting pad's strength much better than a normal plug. You are right that there is less room though.
MuggydudePop out? Are you serious? They are literally threaded in with epoxy...
Anyways, this is why I generally stick with teton gravity ;) have a good day
