Default 2 decks. 1 pair bindings. Risk of wear n tear?

I got 2 decks. And only one pair of bindings .

One is a mountain, other is freestyle, so I continually keep dismounting and mounting my bindings. I'm just wondering if this is ok?

Like is there a risk te board threads will wear out? Bcuz I know the bolts can be replaced. But if those board goes, damn!!

Anybody here have experience with this? Maybe with old old boards and numerous binding swaps ?

I'm considering maybe buying a second cheaper pair to avoid the risk if there is one.

Thanks

First of all, I think that your board that is a mountain is too big for you. Try something smaller and more manueverable.
(Couldn't resist...)

On a serious note, the bigger concern I think would be stripping the heads of the screws. Of course, the screws can be easily replaced.
While I don't think that the holes in the board should wear down readily, I would still get a second pair of bindings and leave each board with its own pair.
I also loosen the screws if my board is going to sit for awhile btw.

I take my bindings off usually when I wax (unless i'm in a hurry). I like to look over them, remove any ice or other grit stuck in them. Then I remount them after, checking all the screws and looking for general wear and tear on parts. If you know how to torque a screw the right way there should never be an issue. Torque each one little by little and make sure you use the right size screwdriver (I use the T shaped grip screwdriver gives better leverage and lets you put more weight down onto it to prevent stripping)

3 decks, 5 pairs of bindings, less of a problem...

Yeah, I wouldn't worry at all about binding swapping constantly on the EST/Channel system. If the inserts strip just slide new ones into the channel!

I've got some C60 non-ESTs for sale too if anyone's interested. Size M.

It's fine as long as you're using the right size screwdriver bit and being careful not to crossthread. Depending on how often you're swapping, the screw heads will strip eventually but it's cheap/easy to source another set.
