Re-mounting touring bindings
Hey guys, so a couple months back i snagged a pair of atomic automatic 109s with trackers for stupid cheap from ebay($160). Anyway, they're mounted at recommended which isn't the end of the world but having always skied closer to centre ( was on bacons at -2.5cm of centre) i'm a little worried that i'm going to feel too far back.
when i ski pow i tend to enjoy finding things to jump off and enjoy throwing the odd three or flat 3 in, i don't want the skis to feel cumbersome and as if the swing weight is completely off.
So i know with standard alpine bindings the general rule of thumb is +/- 2cm of the original mounting point and the skis should be ok, does the same rule apply for AT bindings? if say i wanted to go forward 2 or 3 cm would this create a problem?
Honestly ski them first. The automatic really does ski best mounte at recommended. It does seem a long way back, I even had an atomic athlete question if they were mounted wron but after skiing they loved them. So try them out and I doubt you will want to move them.
In terms of movin trackers you should be ok. The acre holes are all straight so you may find you can reuse holes if you have to. But ski them I don't think you will want to move them.
