    Shop Guys, boot base plate replacement help!

    Okay i took my wateas and new marker barons into the shop last night. They wouldn't mount with my current Lange boots, because the rear baseplate is significantly worn. I had intended on replacing this winter or when I got around to it, but now I am in a bind. My usual shop doesn't do langes...

    Ski Binding Brake Question

    I have the Watea 114. The Marker Barons come in 110mm brake and 132mm brake models. The Watea has a 114mm waist. Which brake width should I purchase? I would think that the brakes should be able to be bent a few millimeters on each side to accomodate the 114 waist. My local shop said they...
