"People always ask me, 'is it worth it, getting hurt that much?' and the answer is yes, I would do it all over again, have six more season ending injuries in the next 10 years to keep doing what we get to do, there's nothing better than sliding down snow and flying through the air"

I rode sth 12's all this year. Super nice binding, and pretty light. I like the wide toe piece a lot. Not sure how they compare to Griffons, but they could hold up a little better. Either way i bet you'll like both. As for the FKS, the sth are lighter but the FKS are bomb proof. I had FKS on my pow skis this year, and liked them a lot.
