the two negate each other. for eric, stomping a 60 ft cornice switch is like jumping on a really soft hotel mattress." - ChronicF explaining why Eric Pollard still has knees.
the conversion into pounds on the deadbolt 412's is way off. the 412's, 614's and 816's are all very similar if not the same weight. and the 412's are definitely not lighter than salmon z12s. other than that its a pretty quality list.
I honestly don't see how .30 of a pound will honestly affect your overall skiing expierience. I mean, I ride liek teh heavyies binding on that list ( Look PX Jib Ti) and it honestly has not made a difference on how I ski. Sure, if someone REALLY wanted a light set-up they's follow this, but I honestly cannot see it being that sognificant of a difference.
im gonna declare shenanigans on half of those weights... my deadbolt 614s are wayyyy lighter then any of my pivots/axials and fks. the 412 isnt that light because theres almost no difference in weight between the 412,614 and 816 like someone noted above me. this list sucks.

This list is as legit as all of the companies' feedback is!
I weighted 2/3 of those bindings myself with a very accurate (g) scale myself + I got feedback personally from all the binding companies asking info about their weight, cause this info is rarely stated on any of their sites/catalogs.
If you read the whole thread carefully, you could see that there was a typo in the original post for the deadbolt 412! The correct comparison between the two is almost minimal (25g, that's like nothing):
4frnt Deadbolt 412............... - 1200 g (2.65 lbs)
4frnt Deadbolt 614............... - 1225 g (2.70 lbs)
Have you even weighted your 614s and fks120s on a real (g) scale to really compare them??
All the info I posted is for the 06/07 bindings and not for any older models in case they differ.
