Mounting Forward of Center
So I just bought a pair of skis used and already drilled. I mounted them up with my own bindings and it would appear that the previous owner had slightly bigger feet than me. When I click into the bindings the boot midsole and the ski centreline are about a centimetre out of sync. So basically my boots are about a centimetre forwards of centre. The skis are last years TCs and are symmetrical.
Is this going to be a noticeable pain in the ass or should I just leave them and see how they feel?
so when you say you mounted them up with your own bindings do you mean you glued and screwed your bindings into the hole pattern from the previous owner? you say it seems the previous owner had bigger feet than you, is your forward pressure correct then? being about a cm forward of centre shouldnt be a massive issue but if it bothers you, depending on which bindings you have, you could remount the toes closer and adjust the heels back to give you correct forward pressure and boot sole on the centre line. personally i would take the skis and your boots into a shop and explain to them what the problem is and let them sort it.
