How do they attach to the ski, do you need any special tools?
I have Merril nnn backcountry boots will they work with these?

Responded on

They attach via ski screws. If you're careful you can mount them using a drill (use electrical tape on the bit to form a stop so you don't drill through your ski), some 5-min epoxy, and a pozidrive #2 driver. They come with a template and it's not exceptionally hard, but care is required or you could ruin your skis.

As to whether they'll fit your boots, they probably won't. NNN and NNN-BC are different sizes and not cross compatible, and I'm guessing your Merrils are NNN-BC, which is a wider mount.

Can i adjust the rear plate for a longer boot?

Responded on

Yes, but only once. The rear plate is screwed into the ski. You can pull up the screws, fill the holes with epoxy, redrill, and remount the rear plate without touching the front (I did this for mine), but it's a semi-permanent change.

Fine Touring Binding

Make no mistake, this is a light touring binding; it's designed for that purpose and does the job well. It is just fine if you're out on a groomed XC trail. The clip in and release are nice and easy, even with gloves, and the system works well. For casual use it's a fantastic value and I love mine.

Take it off the trail and tackle steep terrain and you'll quickly discover the limitations of the NNN system. The interface to the ski is no where near as robust as a 3-pin and controlling the ski is very difficult. I've manage to eek out tele turns on these things, but would much prefer a more solid connection to the ski. Also, the heel tends to collect snow when in powder, so they're not so great for BC use. Of course, that's not their intended use, so I'm not going to knock them for that. In my experience they do survive such use, but they're nowhere near ideal. Keep in mind that I'd only 155lbs, so if you're bigger they may not last through such abuse.

I had one pair for two years of hard use, much more than they were intended for, and they worked fine until TSA did a poor job repacking my ski bag and Delta finished one off. I got a replacement and it's also worked fine. Like I said, I use these things for much harsher skiing than their intended use, and I have yet to ever have a problem with them in the snow.

My notes: T3 = flat mounted, T4 requires NIS rail system.
