Tyrolia Attack 2023 lineup: 11 vs 14
I ran into an issue when purchasing a pair of new skis and binding, and was wondering if I can get some space.
I am an intermediate skier in the PNW. I decided to go with Elan Risptick + Attack 14. The shop has made a mistake and mounted an Attack 11, instead of 14.
I was wondering if the difference between the two is significant enough to fight for? Is it easy to remove this binding and mount the correct one without damaging the ski? or should I just be happy with the 11 and get a refund for the difference?
I would 100% fight them for it. The 11s are cheaply made compared to the 14s. Honestly they owe you new skis. I guess they could use the old holes but it’s still an issue. I would contact the shop and tell them.
The mounting pattern is the same so it would be really easy to carefully pull the screws and remount the 14s with fresh glue and careful replacement of the screws. You can feel if they are re-threading nicely.
Otherwise ski the 11s and try to get some compensation greater than the difference in cost.
Have you ever broken a binding? What kind of skiing do you like and how big are you?
