Bindings for 2013 K2 Domain
Just ordered a pair of 2013 Domains and can't wait to shred 'em, but I need some bindings first. My budget is $280-$350, but I would prefer to stay on the lower side. I'm 5'9 165 lbs. Any help is much appreciated.
What din do you ride? You could be on anything from a 12 din to an 18 so you will need to give some more info to get any recommendations.
Was riding with my din set to 9 on my old skis and bindings. Although the old bindings were kinda crappy and the skis were definitely not meant for my style of skiing (mostly park and fooling around on the mountain). Forgot to say that I'm a type III+ skier and ski pretty agressively in the original post. I read through that "What binding" sticky after I made this thread and it says that I should probably be around a 12-14 din setting.
You would prob be fine on most 12 or 14 din bindings, I doubt you would be riding a din setting of 12-14 though if you were on 9 before. If you get something like a sth 14 you would have plenty of head room. You should be able to find them from last season fairly cheap. If you want current season look for the sth2 13.
What made you recommend those bindings instead of others? I was looking at rossignol fks series of bindings and the marker jester/griffon before.
Overall I think the sth is one of the best bindings. It has great durability, works really well, is easy to repair and can be found for good prices. If not those then peaks are very good too. Fks are good too but have a couple of issues which in my opiniono makes them a less good choice, but they are still a very good binding.
Forgot about jesters. They are good too but I would put sth, peak and fks before them.
