Refitting bindings

 Poster: A snowHead

Advice please.
Bought some Latigos from here way back in the summer, need to have bindings moved because my boots too small for bindings. Skis; Blizzard Latigo 170, bindings ; Salomon STH 10, me 78 kg 175 cm. boots 25.5.
When I spec this at shop would you recomend lining up boot and ski marks or set boots slightly forward, it looks as if bindings are set about 10mm forward. Although Ill listen to ski shop I would like another opinion
Thanks

@enigma, if you live anywhere near Lambley, Nottinghamshire, I suggest you contact our own spyderjon. He can determine the sweet spot for you on your skis, and refit your bindings.

@enigma, If you tried your boots in the bindings they will look as if the binding is mounted forward as your boot is smaller than the mount. Note that when re-drilling a ski you either need to leave 10mm gap between old and new holes or use inserts.

I've re-drilled loads of skis, sometimes even with a pair of holes slightly overlapping the old holes. If you plug the old hole using a suitable glue for the core it will be ok. It is not optimal but I question the 10mm rule.

@enigma, Id check with the boot is in the toe of the binding and see where the boot centre sits wrt to the recommended mounting point on the ski. And the same with the heel clipped in. If one was a cm or so in front or behind the recommended mounting point, Id move either only the toe or heel part.
