"Two words would be like pow and fun. fun pow.. FUNPOW" Sean Pettit
ďThis life I am living, what I do everyday, I mean itís unreal, Itís every single day I ski, every single day I am out in the mountains with my friends, I love so much, Itís like the righteous day, the fullest day, itís every day man, it is an absolute blessing to be doing what Iím doing and never will I take it for grantedĒ - CRJ
Rented tele gear yesterday and went skiing today. Shit is awesome. Couldn't understand shit at first but then on the way back up I watch some videos on youtube on my phone and BAM I could do it.. almost.. haha! It's hard having control on these skis but once you get it. It's fun!
I eventually want to try it, especially in the park cuz it looks fun. But I don't want to be one of those kids that just tightens their bindings so they are on Telly's but don't actually Telly turn. There are a couple I have seen at my mountain and even mammoth
why would you need a touring mode with Targa's? they're a light-duty enough binding to not need one and they are heavy-duty enough at the same time to aggressively rip whatever is thrown at you. and you can bust out your old leather boots and use them with the Targa's too.
My main problem with all these recent tele bindings is they're much too heavy duty. kinda looses the whole feel a bit.
Because its easier to tour with a touring mode..? I skied targas for a season and a half and didn't have anything bad to say about them but nothing really good either. They're just your basic tele bindings
Not much more than the "dropping the knee" part, actually. The whole point in having the free heel is to be able to do turns with the knee dropped. I realize people can do whatever they want, but why not use the equipment the way it is made to be used? Its like owning a manual car, but only driving around in 2nd gear...
