I know there are dozens of threads about these bindings here on Newschoolers, and I read pretty much all of them, but now I´m just even more confused...
First off some info about me, I live in Finland so I can´t find almost any of those old fks 155´s which I hear would be perfect for me. I´m 6´2´´ and weigh 180ish, usually ski at din 7. I´m putting the new bindings on the new Bacons, which I´m going to pre-order and I could get a rather good package deal with some new bindings. I also have 05 or 06 Look P12 jibs with the turntable heel in quite good condition on my old skis I never use anymore.
The fks/pivot bindings I´m talking about are the Look Pivot 14 10/11. So these have the turntable heel but a plastic toe piece?
At my ski shop I could also get Marker Griffon/Jester (/Schizo) or Salomon STH12/14/16.
The Look Pivot 14 is the most expensive of all these bindings. If they were fks 155 I wouldn´t even consider those other bindings but are the new ones also that much more bombproof?
Or do you think it would be wise to put on my old P12 jibs that have seen at least of 3 years of abuse already?
