    So I picked up a tyrolia Jrex plate to mount Attack2s and the holes are off from the heel holes. I have mounted STH, STH2 Pivots using their plates an never had an issue with them before.

    Also is a flat heads width "normal" spacing on the heels of these?Click image for larger version.

    I mounted some 11s and 13s not long ago using the jigarex plate. All the heel holes lined up but my 13s have the same height gap yours do. When I tapped the holes there were very slight dimples in the ptex so I'm not sure there is any more room to screw them down.
    My wife's 11s are flush to the ski but it seemed like those screws are shorter than the 13s.

    Can anyone confirm if the Radical 2 template from Knut Pohl is actually OK to use? Says "Not yet verified - use with caution" on the template itself.

    True. I use a couple spring clamps after setting it to keep it in place

    Has anyone actually had bindings rip out because of too many previous mounts? I'm on my 3rd mount and had to put 2 holes for the heel that were touching previous holes and wondering how big of a concern this is. Holes were filled with dowels and 24-hour epoxy.

    Iíve had overlapping holes on multiple pairs, repaired the same way, with no issues over many days on the hill.

    I've seen it on mounts performed by others, including a couple dumbfounding remounts with screws touching or nearly touching holes from prior mounts. None on mounts I've performed, although I'm careful to stay >1 cm away from existing holes.

    I seen it, Bruce a 280lb wildman had a kamikaze style, put wedges under his binding into a Foam core whitestar so the 2nd set of screw holes were in effect elongated cuz the screws were right side by each, banging down moguls and the ski breaks in half, there was still a layer of glass or something holding the pieces together so I folded the ski up and skied down with it over my shoulder to the saloon where Bruce spent the afternoon, we smoked some doobies Bruce gave me his walkman went back to the bar, when I turned it on a voice said " you are all going to die " which was pretty freaky


    YMMV but IMO Its all a matter of best practices and mine are that I keep 1/2 an inch between the holes, not depend on wood dowels, mount with 24hr epoxy and ski without a walkman

    I've never ripped out of my own mounts. But I've repaired other people's rip-outs, so it happens.

    How big of a concern it is depends on how many cascading risk factors you have in your case. So many factors. For one, if you're a toddler, then you're fine---if you're Shaq, then maybe not fine. Etc etc etc etc etc etc. So many "et ceteras" that can add up, or not.

    "3rd mount" is NOT a concern to me, unless any of those mounts were "carelessly done".

    "2 holes for the heel that were touching previous holes" is INDEED a concern, depending on other risk factors. Is this a tight screw pattern (e.g. FKS heel)? Is it a metal topsheet? Did you assess what happened to that hole on a preliminary "dry run" of inserting the screw/self-tapping WITHOUT binding first? Etc etc etc.

    I'm 6'3 200 lbs. The first mount was filled by a shop with plastic plugs. The second mount I filled with dowels and 24-hour epoxy. The holes I am touching are the dowel holes. The bindings mounted are Shifts and they're mounted to Rocker 2 108s (no metal). When I did tighten the screws down, they felt tight, no spinners. The holes were barely touching, maybe 10% touching, but definitely not the 1 cm gap most people recommend.

    10% touching does not meet my personal standards, but you might be good to go anyway...hard to know if the holes got damaged when you inserted screws. As I wrote before, a "dry run" beforehand would have given you a chance to see if your technique results in immediately damaged holes.

    My personal risk tolerance is I would guinea pig the hell out of it before I would ever let any friends borrow it. And I'd start off by skiing them in a low consequence situation (inbounds), and incrementally increase the consequences until I gained full confidence. Definitely likely that you might never have any sign of any trouble at all.

    I mounted Jester Demos on 4 old ski models for borrowing in Squaw/Tahoe (plus some visits to Mammoth).
