Fks155 vs fks185
i am looking into them both
i am 5 9 165 is the fks 185 a little much for me?
the 185 would be over kill for you. They are made for racers who are carving at high ass speads. The FKS 155 goes to 15. Which would be plenty for you enless your skiing big mountain shit pinning it and dont want a ski popping off so you dont die.
minimum din on the 185 is 8, but you don't want to set binders on the highest or lowest setting, so the lowest din setting would be 10.
the bindings are exactly the same except that the 185 has more gnar springs for higher din range. get the 155.

shut up there are plenty of questions regarding skis and bindings on this form
and yeah i was looking into the 155s but i found the 185s for cheaper but it is a little to much
whats ur point. Other people are retarded so u can be too. Whats the point of a specific ski equipment forum if everybody just post in ski gabber
i would go 155......,...who needs a din 0f 18 anyways? also, i believe they are slightly lighter.
depends if you are done growing or not, but really, i think you would be set we either of them, im 6ft 180-185 and i have 155s and they work fine, i dont ever think im going to have to krank them up to 15, so i say what ever you can get a better deal on

If you can find the 185 for cheaper and you run your DIN regularly at 10 or more go for the 185. Otherwise try and get some 155s. Chances are you could trade the 185s for 155s and cash even.

You don't need the 185. Any of the Race stock heal pieces (even the 12) will hold you in. They're freakin' rat traps. Whichever is cheaper.
*insert claim here*
yea. the 120s would prolly be fine too, actually better cause its got a more forgiving toe piece.
the deciding factor should def. be your boots thou, if you have small ass feet, a 185 isnt too bad. but if you got like 29-30s, theres no way youd want that.

I am not 100% on this, but Im pretty sure that 155s and 185s are completely different. The 185s have the full pivot healpiece and are made entirely of metal. 155s are not as well made (more plastic) and have a crappier healpiece.

I don't think thats true, I know that comparing the s916 and the s914 on the salomon side is like that, but I don't think its like that when comparing the 155 and 185...

Yeah I just looked around and the 155 and 185 are identical, I was thinking that the 155 is the same design as the axials.
Ya thats totally not true. The race stock bindings are the exact same except diffrent springs. THey fucking suck when you pop out though they get all twisted and stuff. But they are the bomb over all. Get the 155 i had some and wish i still did.
THE BIGGER NUMBERS ARE ALWAYS BETTER. DUHHHH
p.s. your mom says hi
the 120's are different though. they have a tow piece that is much more simmilar to the regular bindings. on the 155 and 185 there is not upward release. the 120 can realease upwards.
And if you would like information on which boots you should buy ask these people:
