I've noticed over the time I've been on NS, there's been a number of guys suggesting and wanting to make a binding comparison spreadsheet. This was mainly to avoid the sheer number of threads asking what 12 din binding they should buy.
I contributed quite actively in the threads discussing these spreadsheets, and went away and thought what I personally would have found helpful a few years back when choosing bindings seemed overwhelming. I think it would be important to include a balanced, fair and ever-changing rating system. So far all the ratings are composed of combined averages across various different sites. However I would really like to see some NS input so either post up your ratings below, pm me or comment on the picture on my profile. I don't mind where, I'll pick it up and update averages once a week. A rating system isn't the only feature, I've also included the following:
-DIN Category (I have chosen to list bindings by category rather than brand)
-Brand and Model (kind of to be expected though, right?)
-MFD Compatable (Y or N)
-AT Mode (Y or N)
-Rating /5 (as mentioned above)
It is important to note the spreadsheet is not designed to tell you what din binding you need, it's designed to offer advice what binding to chose in the din range suitable to you. If an individual wants advice regarding their din range they should refer to DHogg's sticky: http://www.newschoolers.com/ns/forums/readthread/thread_id/481906/
Unfortunately I was unable to fit one solid screenshot of the screenshot in a thread. So I had to split it into three screenshots, thats why the images below might seem like they don't fit together. I assure you they do, I you want to see a solid screenshot, head over to my profile and look at my pics.
So the spreadsheet:
Also if you know what information to fill in place of the dashes please pm or comment like you would a rating submission and I'll put it in for next time. And if you guys think there are any glaring issues with the presentation, content or nature of the Comparison Spreadsheet just pm and I'll do my best to get it sorted.
