I think thats a new binding system - If I am right its something like the thing from Blizzard where you have kinda fence on your ski, where the binding can be slid in. You can easily adjust it in width or position ... But I am not quite shure

Its a cool idea. when i first heard about it i was thinking it would be heavy like a demo binding. But it looks like a good idea and they saved weight by have the toe piece in a sliding track. but now i have some other concerns is that track strong enough that your not gonna rip it out in a gnar crash? and if there idea was a quick change for the conditions why does it say at the end of the video "must be done by professionals"? Whats gonna happen is some kid well do it them selves and think as long as the din is high they'll be fine and forget all about the forward pressure and then get messed up. cause when the forward pressure if off the din is never gonna release right.
it says adjustments should be done by professionals. that doesn't mean mounting/changing the position. I think that all brands should come up with a standard mounting platform so taht skis can be made like this with the holes in them for changing bindings from one pair of ski to another. im surprised that rossi hasnt put this on their other park skis too. i would pick up a pair of these if i didnt just get a new pair of skis. its like the reactor binding but without the plate
Martin Luther King had a dream, it was to put up a 200 foot high fence to keep Mexico out.
Some fuck sold me a pair of Scratch 140Ti bindings. he conveniently forgot to tell me that they were the free system version of the binding. I didn't realise this and took them into a shop - where they told me that they couldn't find a jig to mount them with. I took them to the other shop that I use and they looked into it a bit more and realised what they were. The second shop doesn't really want to mount them in case of liability. The first shop will mount them but it's going to be like $60 because of the time involved since there isn't a jig available at all.
They have a different drill pattern to the standard Scratch 140Ti. Does anyone know if there is any other difference? I want to mount these on a pair of Scratch BCs - they don't have the free system. will it be safe to use these bindings mounted straight on a ski without the system? It looks like it'll work but I want to be sure. So if someone who knows what they're on about could reply that would be really awesome. I was hoping to be using them this weekend but that doesn't look likely now.
The other option is to write these off ($120) and shell out for another pair of new bindings. My local ski shop is getting in some shop soiled Markers. They said they were freestyle ones but when I asked they weren't actually sure what model they were. So I'll find out about them tomorrow hopefully.
I'll try and get a pic up of the drill pattern on the bottom of the binding later. kinda busy with work and exams at the moment.
