    Mounting AT Bindings

    I'm thinking of pulling my regular downhill bindings off my B3 Bandit skis and mounting some marker baron AT bindings. I had hoped to get new skis to mount these on but $$ is short and I want to have the tour option.

    So is it possible to do this...more specifically will there be room to offset the old drill holes so new holes can be made?

    I wouldn't be doing this myself and would take it into a shop. Just curious on ppl's thoughts.

    Thanks!

    The Barons (my dukes did) should have a paper template. You should be able to hold it up to the current bindings and see if they have a similar hole pattern.
    Whatever hits the fan will not be distributed evenly.

    Thanks for the info! I haven't yet bought the barons since I am questioning if this will work. I suppose I should just buy them and if they don't work get new skis down the road to mount them on.

    Itching to tour...

    Will definatly work. You may need to move the binding slightly off of the mid-sole mark but it will work.

    Many shops on the east coast will not mount an AT binding. I had a shop on the east coast mount NAXO AT binding. They called me to tell me they had a problem. The NAXO binding fell off the work bench and cracked. I returned the NAXO binding. I flew to Salt Lake City purchased a different brand AT binding from a shop and had them mount it Its been good for 5 years now.

    This should be able to work. Good rule of thumb is that the new holes should be at least 1 cm away from the old holes. IIRC, the Barons and the Dukes have the same hole pattern.

    Thanks for feed back guys.

    Not sure what I should do. I have had some tell me not to do a remount and some say go ahead.

    Some say don't go with markers. Some say go with them.

    Some say get a new setup just for touring.

    I dunno what to do.

    Hey I appreciate the offer, thank you! I'm in Western NY and haven't bought the bindings yet.

    I wanted to put the the barons on some new prophets originally.

    Have you skied your setup yet? I would love to hear what you think!

    You'll solve your concerns about re-mounting AND you'll be able to swap bindings back and forth.
