Screw plugs for Lines?
Does anyone know if Line is offering plugs for their Quickmount holes if other bindings are mounted? Just wondering if snow/ice build up in there could be a problem. Any thoughts??
Probably not, those things are ingenius though...being able to switch bindings to different skis (so you only have to have one pair of bindings) will be one of the forces behind the sucess of line bindings. as for snow and ice build up? last time i checked they end up melting...but if you're really worried about rocks or some other shit, I'm sure you could get some shorter screws to fill the holes.

not really sure why you want to fill them, If you are skiing on them there are screws in there (I wouldn't recomend putting different screws in there because you coould screw up the tread and make the bindings pull out). But if you aren't skiing them then they would more then likely be inside somewhere or in a locker. thats all I got.
He's putting on OTHER Bindings.

haha, someone had to say it
well dude, if you're putting on a different binding then part of it could cover the holes anyway. I'm pretty sure that the holes do have a metal inner part to them with the thread on it. It's not going to matter if water gets in there coz it will with Line bindings there anyway. Just coz the hole has a screw in it doesn't mean that it's watertight which it won't be so yah, water will get in there anyway, Wouldn't worry about it at all dude.

I know this, I was A) praising the concept of the line binding and B) saying that he could get some shorter screws to plug the holes before he mounted the other bindings (so later on when the bindings actually come out they would still fit).

haha, other bindings...why? but some LINE reactors

the question is WHY buy line bindings not why not
-jon, skiing the ice so the other half of the country doesnt have to.
I love Line's stuff, but I am buying Look instead for two reasons:
1. I have yet to hear a set date from Line when they are coming out, which means I don't want to be stuck without skis when I have to patrol (sold my old ones already)
2. I have never had a problem with Look, and most first year engineering designs have quirks. Personally, I don't want to be the one with a blown out knee or a binding that can't keep me in.
Nothing against Line, I just want to hear about somebody using them first...there aren't any reviews because the plastic version has yet to come out. Even the ski mags have only skied the all metal prototypes.
First off, they are offical gonna be out Nov 1 acording to my purchase order. I dont see whats all the hype out the binding, just get a look/rossi binding, they hold up to jumping very well, and still release when you need them too. I personaly have some bad feelings about this binding.
According to my rep i'll have the line binding before the 16th of october.

Don't think just jump.
This is what I mean about the dates, those are 2 different ones, and the website says something different than that or what is on my pro-form.
Anyway, I agree Look works great and I'll use it until something else is proved to be better.
Thanks for the replies guys!
