well i got some invaders that are going to be shipped to me soon, and i was thinking about buying some new bindings(meh) or putting on a pair of fairly new salomons or markers... i dont know what to do because the 2 people that i know that have ridden salomons have torn up their knees (my dad and my friend) and markers are heavy
from my experience, I've seen ALOT of Salomon bindings get broken, and the toepiece keeps getting loose on my s810s. i have to keep tightening it down so my skis don't randomly come off. I probly wouldn't get markers eitehr though. I think you should look at Look/Rossi
then why did you say in your original post the mentioning of buying new, which is probably your best option. OR you could take the bindings into your local shop and talk to a tech to get their opinion which is a pretty good idea because they would know proper din settings and how the binding would work for you.
hahaha that just a made me think of my little brother's bindings- he has c509s that are at least 4 years old mounted on 145 Junior teneghties that are as old. i think the din goes up to 6. they are shitty bindings, but they are light, and they haven't broken yet, which my s810s have a couple times. It's funny b/c he is one of the better park skiers at our hill, and has the oldest, cheapest equipment.
dude you cant compare S810s and then say that soloman dosent make good bindings s810s are not a high performance binding. i had S912 tis for the last 2 seasons and they work really well but my only complaint about them is that i kept ripping out the track that the heelpeice is on. i wasnt going to buy salomons again but then the STHs came out so i got them
oh yea and salomon is sooo legit with theyre warrenties they replaced my heelpiece like 4 times and i still have 2 years of warrenty
true about the warranty. They replaced my heelplate when it broke in half. I also skied some used S916s that the shop lent me, while mine were on warranty, and tehyw ere alot better, but the brakes were cracked and wouldn't work righht. My bro got the z12s last year and they were light as all fuck, but they cracked arouind all the heelpiece screwholes and he has had to get the brakes replaced 4 or 5 times because the keep breaking.
i was around 85 lbs at the time and had them at 4.5, i ended up landing sideways, my inside edge dug in and binding didnt pop out, my knee collapses inward and oops, there goes my mcl and partially my acl
