Re-drill newish Invictus for WTR bindings?
So towards the end of last season I bought Armada Invictus 89ti skis and had them mounted with marker griffons for my Full Tilt Seth's. I am now getting lange xt130s and would like to utilize the WTR soles. I work volly patrol so having WTR sole and walk mode would be a great improvement. Obviously the griffons don't support WTR.
So the question: do I re-drill the nearly brand new invictus for pivot duals? or would I be better off selling the skis/bindings together and drilling a new pair with both?
You'll be okay re drilling, just don't let the new guy at the shop do it. The Pivot and FKS hole pattern is so different from other models that there is rarely an issue. The heel holes are narrow and tight together, so different from Marker. Make sure you talk to the tech before they do it as to if they need to move center point a bit they know which way that you want it adjusted. If it was me I would ask the tech at your shop to pull the Markers off and put the jug on the flat ski so you can see the new hole pattern before it gets drilled.
people have used WTR soles in the griffons/jesters before because of the adjustable toe height. It wont test out on a shop machine, but I know a few people that rip WTR soles in jesters. Ive put my xt130s into my FKS180s without an issue. Itll be tight, but it will work. That said, if you are going to be putting 100 days on the setup, dont worry about the 2nd mount and do it right.
