I am close to buying the Atomic Blog as my pow ski. I am not sure which binding to choose, but my friend is trying to convince me buying Marker Duke/Baron, so we will be able to tour together. I am not sure how much touring i wanna do next year, but maybe a bit. I was wondering if I sacrifice some downhill performance by choosing the Duke/Baron over a regular alpine binding and will I still be able to throw some backflips and fun stuff on the Duke/Baron.
So the real question will be, is the Duke/Baron worth it if I am not gonna tour a lot?
