radicalfactionAfter skiing a set of centre mount Salomon Suspects into the ground I finally decided to scrape together my year's pay and spend it on a new pair of 2016 Volk Walls, with Marker Griffon bindings. The problem is, when I was getting my bindings mounted, I told the technician that I wanted by bindings centre mounted, he must have assumed that the Volkl reference point that said "boot centre" was the geometrical centre of the boot. Anyway, I'm now left with a symmetrical park ski which I plan to use in the park on rails and jibs that is mounted about 4-5" behind the full centre point of the ski. I hope this will not effect switch skiing, or jibbing, but if it does, is my only option to get the skis re-drilled? I don not have the Schizo version of the griffon, so what do I do? Pictures Below
First of all avoiding the schizo series is a good decision IMO. You have a more solid drill!
I would go talk to the shop, explain the situation calmly, if they deny everything push them a bit. This is their mistake, and they should offer you a new pair. Drilling too many times can become a problem. A single re-drill shouldn't matter, but it's a brand new ski, and they should've gotten it right.
