tomPietrowskiWell if they are one size bigger ie 10mm the you will not get te fks adjusted if they were mounted correctly. They only have about 1cm adjustment so 5mm forward or back so 10mm will not work. You also won't be able to remount the bindings at the same mount point. The holes will only be 5mm from the old which won't work. You will be better just moving the heel or toe. That woul mean whichever you move will have 1cm between holes which will work. I usually move the heel as moving the mount point just slightly back works better them moving it forward as would be done by moving the toe.
Hopefuly that made sense.
DeebieSkeebiesthanks for the input, was actually hoping you or onenerdykid would come in and bestow wisdom, haha.
one more thing (boneheaded question incoming), I mentioned I went up a size from 25.5's to 26.5s. I love the fit, think its quite perfect compared to worn out 25.5s, toes/feet were starting to get abnormally sore after long days of very aggressive skiing, kinda scrunched up and packed right into the front of the liner, etc. However, I know bootfitters/gear-savvy folks like yourself are cautious about going a size up, is there anything you would suggest before skiing in them? maybe a grind/footbed or something like that? As of right now, they feel quite amazing and I don't think there will be many issues skiing in them, too be honest.
Thanks in advance, though.
Grateful4snowJust make sure you dont go too crazy with drilling new holes man... dont want to do it too mant times. because it will weaken your skis and leaves spaces for water to get in and crach from the inside out if they freeze
thats why its always best to do it once do it slow and be preciese and so what is you dont know exactly what your doing. ask someone watch a video or take em to a shop.
tomPietrowskiWith boots it all comes fown to how your foot fits in the shell. Without seeing you in the boots its har to reqlly give any help.
One thing you could do is check te length. Take the liner out of the shell an alip your foot into the shell. Slide your foot forward untill your yoes lightly touch the end. Of you then reach down and check how mich space you have behind the heel. One finger room is a performance tight fit, teo fingers is pretty normal and any more they are a bit big. Try that at least and that should help imdicate if they are a good size.
