Obrien targa bindings interchangeability with Radar Prime bindings

I've got a 2014 Obrien Synchro blem 69" with double targa bindings (xl). Friday I bought a 67" Radar P6 with a front Prime regular sized binding (7-11) and a rear toe plate for visitors who might be in the boat who want to slalom. DILEMMA, I wanna try the P6! Will my front targa binding fit on the P6? I know the ski might be a tad bit short for me at 200 lbs but I'd like to at least play around on the P6 to see what I think of it. The Synchro seems sluggish at 32 mph but that might be OK just getting into the course this coming year so I don't come in too hot to 1. So, throwing it out there for your feedback. What would you do in my shoes?

    Both skis have the bindings installed with inserts? Unscrew the mounting bolts and see if the bolt patterns match up (they should). Mark the binding location before you remove anything so you can put things back to stock. Put a bit of antisieze on the screws so you can adjust things in the future.

    Enjoy testing the ski. Perhaps you will need a couple of different settings (forward might help you on an undersized ski). Your skiing might improve after working on the evaluation!

    Thanks Eric. I'm just wanting to see what the P6 has to offer. All I've ever known is an old, old Jobe Honeycomb and that was close to 25-30 years ago. But, since I haven't ever been in the course I don't have any meaningful info to go on.

    Anything would be better than a 20+ year old ski
