Reusing 4 year old FKS on new skis?
Opinions on using 4 year old FKS 14's on some new boards? I could really use the savings of not springing for new bindings. I have ridden them pretty hard in park and all mountain, but by visual inspection I can only find cosmetic damage.
There's no such thing as too much snow.
If they're not broken, why the hell not
I have a pair of 18 year old fks I use fairly regularly.
You'll be fine

Eh doesn't matter they were next years binding 5 years ago
Hood crew fucked yo bitch
I still use 20+ year old Salomons on new skis.
It doesn't matter if you're a King or a lowly street sweeper, sooner or later you'll dance with the Reaper.
It'd be advisable to get a din test to see where the release values are at, but reusing bindings for several years is not an issue.
you should test them but yeah theyre most likely fine, tons of people use old pivots, 916s, etc. my pivots are 14 years old. not much has changed functionally
i've been through 4 pairs of park skis in 8 seasons. same pair of FKS 155s.
my newest FKSs are 9 years old, oldest 14.
Likely fine, though some new grease in the toe and heel isnt a bad idea, specially if you hit urban or carry them on top of your car where salt can eat it away. I almost exclusively ski on old rebuilt turntable bindings (FKS) cause they rarely break and last forever.
look at is this way. If the break you will most likely replace with another pair of fks or pivots so at least the mounting holes will match up. Ride the old.
