    this will ^^ work for any frame type AT binding where you mount the heel and toe independently but they need to lineup/mesh perfectly "

    good luck eh
    This.

    After I fucked up my first tech mount using just the template (it went fine on the 2x4) I read XXX-er's tips and I've since mounted 4 sets of tech bindings and all align perfectly. I was crying as I filled the holes I fucked up on brand new Backland 95s.

    It sounds like Tech mounts may or may not work perfectly for most people ... its a box of chocalates

    I asked my ski bud who used to own Valhalla Pure how he mounted AT bindings and his explanation was literally just that one sentence, it was so simple & made perfect sense to me

    I don't use templates, cuz I worry about them shifting or being printed right so i just use the binding itself, I think templates are fine to figure out where to put things but when it comes to drilling the holes I wonder if people print them off/ drill a bunch of holes super fast without being careful or understanding what is really going on and a tech instal could really highlight this

    Also my BSL is so small I tend to mess around with placement a bit
