Do you know roughly how old the set is? Post-2003 will allow the rods to be swapped for standard length rods, I think.
If I can do that, I’ll buy them.

There are long and short rods, not standard. I just changed out the spring cartridges from my 2012 3-pin Hardwire (blue), with brand new X2 springs (black).
When in doubt call Voile. They have real people whom are knowledgeable about their products answer the phone to answer your questions.

I'm no expert, just a dude that skis a lot and lives near areas conducive to skiing a lot. That binding goes great with t4, t2, and t1 class boots. It's been said on this page that you can throw an extreme class leather in there and it'll work. I put an alico arctic in it on the rug at home and it did feel like a bit of a mismatch. Maybe I'll try that combo on snow this week and report back

"There are long and short rods, not standard."

NOt sure about that Fish; the Voile site currently shows short, standard, and long rods available for the SB's. My 27 Excursions are at the smallest end of the fit range for the standards (27-31). And I think it's not good being all the way at one end or the other for fit.
