So I'm well......cheap, so even though I'm almost 200lbs I'm skiing Marker Free 12's which obviously are terrible. Last week i didn't quite get my back foot up onto a rail and knocked my ski off. You know the two "wing" looking pieces on the toe part, that are on the sides of the toe part of your boot when you clip in? One of them was completely blown out to one side. I just pushed on it really hard and slammed it a couple times and it popped back into place. I skied the rest of the day on it fine.
Is it safe to keep skiing on it? Did it just get knocked out of place or is there probably an internal plastic piece that is now broken?
Also what is the cheapest possible decent binding I can get? Because these things are on their last legs regardless, I sort of doubt they'll even last me this season.
EXACT same thing happened to my dynastar jib bindings. except mine was on a 3/4 backflip. mine was fine to ski on for small sessions like rail jams but i never got a chance do any real skiing on it because it happened on the last day of the year. the boot might wiggle around a little which is nothing to worry about unless it slips out. i am getting the shop i got them from to replace it. you should probably not test it if your doing something risky but early season stuff will be fine. ask your shop that you bought it from to replace it, definatley don't mount new skis with it and i would say get some new bindings or at least a new toepeice.
Tramdock has had some good deals on good bindings lately - I'd keep my eye on there and see what pops up. I know they've had PX 12s for around $100 a lot lately.
