FKS heel ripped out of my jskis
What options do I have and what would you guys recommend... Currently mounted center, I would like to keep them center mounted but I don't want to destroy the integrity of the ski.
How would -1cm back do?
I think -1 works with fks hole patterns. not sure how shops feel about 1cm difference but ive done it myself and had no problems
a passionate skier looking for new and lucrative ways to acquire gnar points
1cm away from the old holes is usually fine, unless the ripped out holes are all buggered. You could also ask the shop to install helicoils into the old holes. You should be fine that way if you have a competent shop doing the work.
DAMN IM OLD
I have access to some quiver savers, but the ski shop didn't seem to competent with them (basically told me they would have to see if they could figure out how to install them) so I'm going -1cm back instead. Hopefully they will be just as fun as they were center mounted
why'd they pull out in the first place is the question.
well first you should address the reason they pulled out, basically the only reason a binding will pull out is a bad mount job, a rotten core, or a really nose heavy landing. So unless it came out on a weird landing I wouldn't trust the shop that mounted them to remount them.
As far as remounting, you will probably barely notice a difference at -1, I actually prefer most of my park skis at -2, so you might even like them better mounted a little back.
