Re: Fischer Traverse 78s availability?

Re: How messed up are my skis after this bungled mounting job

I agree that, with these Rottefella bindings, as the REI shop explained, that you might see a small gap at the rear portions of the binding. (the short silver screws that secure the fore and aft foot plates...) But the front 3 screws (black, longer treads...) need to be tight and snug to the ski top...
