Sorry if this has been posted a million times already, but I've been gone for a while. Seeing as it's ski season again, I figured I'd head on back here and see what's going on.
Two seasons ago I got a pair of Line Skogen Sprangs and one of the first pairs of Line Reactor bindings. I was not impressed with either the skis or the bindings; the skis seemed fragile and noodly, and the bindings were heavy, tall, had inconsistent performance, and felt rather delicate and cheap. Needless to say, I sold the skis and bindings on eBay and bought myself some K2 PEs with Look P12 bindings.
Now that Line is making the Reactor bindings again, and this time in larger quantities, what's the story with it? Is it completely unchanged? Or have they improved it since I had mine?
The reason I ask is because I was just cruising the Line website, and first I saw the new Skogen pro model, which looks pretty damn sweet. It's very stiff and fairly fat, which would be good for me. I also saw the binding test video where they compare the Line binding to a Look binding, and it was a little bit scary when the test machine broke before the Look binding would release in the heel. So now I'm suddenly interested in Line skis and bindings again, despite my previous experience.
To make a short story long, does anybody have experience with the current crop of Line bindings and the new Skogen pro model? Thanks.
It's all gravy.
