Soul 7 binding position advice

 Poster: A snowHead
Poster: A snowHead
Hi,
I am looking to change my bindings from marker Squire to marker tour f12, unfortunately the hole centre conflict on two of the holes, so will have to position the bindings 18mm further aft. The skis are 172 soul7 , how significant is this shift will they ski radically different or barely notice, do not want to end feeling in the backseat. Options please Very Happy

Cheers

18mm's a fair bit, could you get round the conflict by fitting quiver-killers with epoxy so long as the holes don't actually overlap?
Sure Spyderjon will have the relevant conflict dimensions

 Well, the person's real but it's just a made up name, see?

Thanks for the suggestion, the holes would be at very close maybe overlap, 18mm movement gives 10mm edge clearance.

My Soul 7s have a boot centre line marked on them for -2cm, so I’d take that to mean they’re designed for it at least.

If you're desperate to use f12s, you may be able to get hold of some 2nd hand Dynaduke plates from the TGR Forum. They would allow you to mount your f12s with a different hole pattern.

Otherwise, have you checked the hole conflict with other frame bindings?

Edit: Above advice relates to f12s, not the f12 EPF.

The bindings are the f12 EPF, as I have bought them already will use them even if I buy new skis🙄.

My soul7 do not have the -2 marked reading some reviews that was a free ride position, probably not a disaster, but could make them less responsive I think.

Thanks

For powder, especially with so short ones (172cm), I would definitely go with 2cm back. Skiing is so much better this way. Ski is still floating and you can still be aggressive on ski, while when you put bindings on 0, tip starts to sink as soon as you start to ski it more aggressively. So no worries if you need to put binding 18mm back. I would do it either way Smile

Blister recommend mounting the ski 7.9cm back from the true centre of the ski. My guess is that that corresponds with your 18mm back - worth checking, you might be in luck.

Thanks for the replies , I have put the skis in to have the F12’s mounted , so should be at about 18mm aft. Will be interesting to see the difference Very Happy . Just need to buy some skins now.

Hi @njl1968, Are you by any chance looking to sell your Squire bindings?
