B00NEMy local mountain has a ski shop and I went in with my new setup and told them specifically I wanted -1 from center and gave them my boot because they had to wait till the next day. We’ll long story short the next day I walk in at about noon and they go to fit my boot to the ski after they had already mounted it and it was like not even close. I watch them redrill without checking and once again it’s not even remotely close to the right size. And finally they redrill again and it fits. But they never even plugged the holes. So I now have three sets of holes in there. Gonna be trouble trying to sell em later on. Never going back there.

dude, its not just going to be trouble resell, that is going to be $0
with open holes, core will rot and ski will delam/break.
they owe you a new ski.
I quite often buy used skis because I'm cheap and wanna try some models, and its HORRIBLE seeing all the bad mounts as I remove binders.
Just this weekend I bougt skis with bindings, come to inspect them closer, toe is broken on binder... meh pull them, ohhhh 2 screws are 100% loose in the holes, just moving about... "yay" soooo ok topsheet is vulcanoed bad on the holes as well, but I can beat them down, and hardwood/epoxy them, no biggie.. the older holes can match my BSL with some magic and inserts redrilling at very edges of holes.. now to the issue, the cunt that mounted the other holes as well, must have done it on acid using a paper template, so I had to replug old holes, redrill again since its better not to drill into a plastic vs hardwood/epoxy situation, and then overdrill with 6,5mm insert drillbit. this gave me 3mm on each end and I really needed that 3+3mm as some holes was to right of my jig holes, some to front, some to rear etc... .. and I made it work. Adding to insult they were mounted not on the line but one forward, one rear of it... "=)#¤%=)#"¤=)%#"=¤%)#¤%
this is like buying old japanese cars, or cars from the UK, you know there has been an idiot working on them.
