    My long term goal is as my touring ski so I want to play with the mount first, especially since their recommended mounted point is about 6cm further back than most of my other skis in my quiver.

    I'll make a review thread when I have some time on them. My hope is that they are like the K108 that people are going on about, but lighter and more accessible for my old dad bod.

    I wasn't going to drink tonight but then I decided to mount my skis so that was out the window.

    I'm going to type up a more detailed review of my initial impressions in the next day or so, but the summary is I really like them. Very intuitive and not punishing at all despite the long running length.

    Couple of questions for the community. I just mounted my first pair, Pivot 15s on M102s.

    1) Gorilla glue instructions say to make one surface a tiny bit damp before gluing. I toothpicked a miniscule amount of water into each hole, followed by a little dollop of glue, and the screws. Right move, or jong mistake?
    2) Gorilla glue instructions also say to wait 24 hours for a full cure. I could be skiing these tomorrow morning at about 12 hours from now. Should I wait 24 hours or fuckin send it?

    Send it, in a new hole with good threads the glue is really just there to keep water out.

    And I wouldn't use any glue that told me to add water, that's just unnatural. I would use waterproof epoxy, titebond 3, or roo glue on the next mount.

    Thanks for the advice, gonna give em a go tomorrow. Yeah I thought that was a little strange too. I had seen those 3, or Gorilla Glue recommended most in this thread, and decided to go with the GG in the end. I'll probably use one of the three you suggested next time...

    This. Another reason I don't like GG is it expands. Some people like it because they say its "void seeking" but it doesn't seem right to me. I use marine epoxy or ski binding glue. Marine epoxy if I'm filling old holes and I have the mixed anyways. Ski binding glue if its a fresh mount cause its more convenient.

    Yeah I never liked the idea of Gorilla Glue because it expands and is full of air bubbles when it sets, and seem brittle. Leave a dab to set and take a look before deciding for yourself. Waterproof wood glue costs about €5 for a bottle that will last you forever.

    how come nobody has yet posted the popular urban myth that GG will splode your top sheet and delaminte your ski ?

    water seeking is actulay what GG is so yes its in the instruction to wet the surfaces cuz thats how ureathane glue works, so i have spit on the top sheet poked it into the holes with a nail, its water proof, but it has less of a shelf life than slowset so the bottle i had is long hardened, thrown out and not replaced

    in terms of best to less good i would say slowset - GG - wood glue

    Slow set has a longer shelf life does more things, used with filler it will rebuild stripped holes its awesume stuff so that's what I have around


    BTW GG does not splode yer skis

    I finally got around to pulling the old marker M51s (asymmetrical mount job, original spec) off these Rossi Axioms and remounting. "New" binders are 4frnt deadbolt 13 demos. Seems like a well designed, solid demo binder.

    First demo binder mount for me, I thought it was a little harder than a regular alpine mount and easier than an AT mount. I couldn't find a template for the toe so I drew one up in cad--on the off chance that someone needs that one PM me and I'll get it to ya.

    First binding mount with my new to me craigslist drill press. Doesn't really make that big of a difference, you just know the holes are going to be vertical (in relation to the base I guess, better if they were perpendicular to the top sheet). I am hoping to use it to install some inserts in the future.

    Anyway, can't wait to ski these beasts again. They're heavy, almost 4kg per ski/binding. I can't think of many skis these bindings would look good on, but they match the Axioms perfectly with all the green and purple hits in the graphics.

    I picked these coombas up locally for a song and mounted them with Verticals accquired from our very own Core Shot.

    I like this ski... Flatish camber, longish turn radius, kinda damp but not dead. Predictable is the word I guess.
