Buying used skis... Rossi Bandit B2s

I'm looking to buy a used set of Rossi Bandit B2 skis but my knowledge of equpiment has eroded with time.

1. One pair I was looking at said they had been mounted 1x already. Can you mount another time without losing anything?

2. Are demo bindings okay?

I used these skis last year in UT and fell in love with them and my daughter (8) wants to ski with me this year so I need an upgrade from my 4S's (please don't snicker...I get enough laughing at from the ski shop :0).

Thanks in advance for any and all advice.

Nothing wrong with demo bindings. They're designed to accomodate any size boot.

You can second mount another pair of bindings without effecting the performance of the ski. A reputable tech will install plugs where the original screw holes were drilled. The new set of bindings will have different size screws and a different placement for the screws.

If you can, have a certified tech check the skis out first.

1. Usually no problem, depends on why the remount. normally different bindings have different enough screw patterns. If you are remounting the same bindings, I guess it is because you have a different boot size now, so they should move a little anyway.
You may end up being a mm or two away from the 'perfect' mount, but that wont affect most people.
2. Demos bindings are 'okay'. Generally heavier and more durable. which is good and bad. If you are a groomer skier, then heavy bindings are good, if you prefer more off-piste / techincal terrain, then I find a lighter binding is better.
Functionality wise - demo is just as good
