    adjusting marker bindings for new boots

    Just bought Lange Comp 120 FR's, the sole length is 307mm. My old boots had a sole length of 316mm. Can I adjust my marker 1200 comp bindings to accept the new sole length and if so how??

    That's probably at the limit of how far the binding can move, but it can't hurt to try.

    On the back of the heel, on the bottom near the track is a phillips head screw. Crank this backwards until it looks close. Engage the boot into the binding. Adjust the screw until the top edge of the head is flush with the heel housing. At this point, the forward pressure is set. Move the DIN if required, and you're done.

    If you can't move the heel far enough back to have the screw flush with the housing, it may be permissible to be SLIGHTLY too tight; that is, the head of the screw inside the housing ~1mm or so. Any more than this and a remount will be required.

    You pulled the trigger? Sweet!

    Now you can stop bitching about how much your boots hold you back when you try to keep up with me.

    adjusting marker bindings:

    step 1: remove marker bindings

    step 2: fill in marker binding holes

    step 3: replace with worthy binding

    step 4: take to a tech who knows how to set them (cause if you don't already know than you probably should'nt be fukking with them)

    i thought the best place to leave arrogance was in the dumpster, but i guess I was wrong. BTW Thanks to all those that helped, saved my day of skiing for sure.

    The markers are fine, I have never once had problems with markers, sollies are the only bindings I have ever had probs with. Being relativley new around this place I have noticed there seems to be a lemming like following towards sollies, whatever.

    Sollys work.
    Markers don't.
    Maggots are smart.
    Maybe you aren't.

    so true, I heard on an internet forum that those binders where not OK so I'm going to make fun of you untill you join our side

    Ha, I'd like to see your marker riding asses keep up with anyone who has ridden enough to know better (lemmings )

    fresh out of high shool in the midwest and my first year in the mountains, 1999, I was sportin the sweet new M51s (set at 12 of 14) on my extra fat solly x-mountains. man did I get sick of wallowing through waist deep fluff to find my friggin skis while my wiser mountain friends waited for me at the bottom standing in there drivers.

    call me a lemming or whatever but my pure hatred and distain of the marker binding is well deserved.

    go to any freestyle/freeride comp and tell me how many riders are daring enough to drill there boards for those death traps.

    my jibber buddy said that the main problem was with the upward release mechanism its not designed to handle the force of any decent airs into the pow where sometimes a slightly backseat landing is needed.

    and just allow me to dispel you all of the notion that there exists no Marker binding that will hold an aggressive skier..

    I have DIN 24 metal MRR's on my Super G skis. They don't budge, and I'm a fatass.

    That is all.

    Hey, if they don't work for you, they dont work for you. Just don't go skiing down the mountain telling people there riding shit because you don't like a product their using. Your marker senario is the same senario I had with sollies so I switched to marker and have never had a problem since. But I don't care that you love brand x bindings because I know your having a good time skiing whatever you ski.
