    I'm looking to buy bindings for my new 85mm wide skis. I like Look Pivot 12, SPX, or Rosignol FKS type. I see lots of clearance for new models Look Pivot 12, but all are 120mm wide.

    @John O , thanks for the pointers. A Pugski member has offered some brand-new SPX Dual 12 for $114 and I think those will do the trick.

    @Kendall slay came through with some brand new Look SPX 12 bindings that just arrived today. Here's a pic of the bindings, my template for drilling, my new skis (Salomon QST 85), and my boots. I think I'll do the official "Drilling of the Virgin" (skis) on the 1st day of Fall (Sept 21), which is also the day I start growing my winter beard. P_20180808_194611.jpg P_20180808_193433.jpg

    That template is for a Pivot.

    I don't think so. I"ve used that template for SPX in the past. The pivot heel would have a much tighter mount pattern.

    Template aligns perfectly with binding holes and BSL .... all looks perfect. I'll drill into a 2X4 first to double-positive verify. The heel bolt hole pattern is 105 mm X 42 mm -- much larger than a Pivot bolt hole pattern.

    Actually, my bad. I was looking at the toe pattern as if it was the heel. Carry on.
