get the shorter screws. they reason why they're shorter are as follows:

1: long screws will likely bottom out and dent the Channel.
2: If the screw doesn't bottom out and dent the Channel, you wont have enough tension on the disc which could easy result in the disc spinning or the whole binding slipping.

the second scenerio is more likely and would lead to injury. likely a knee injury.

get the shorter screws. they're free.
