Al.CaponeThanks for the reply, really useful. I'm not to sure what the exact purpose of a quiver killer is, I believe they make it possible to swap bindings? A little bit of first hand experience with quiver killers would be nice. +k anyway.
Inserts(quiver killers) are great, but in my opinion unless you're using tech bindings for touring they are unnecessary. They take about 20 minutes to swap the bindings over. Mounting the inserts is kind of a bitch, you have to use a bottoming tap and I'm not sure if shops are down to do it. I did it myself and it took a lot more time and concentration than a normal mount.
If you're just getting into touring I'd recommend you just go with a frame style AT binding like the guardian, duke, or adrenalin. That route would be way less hassle. At your weight I wouldn't worry about "stomp" performance with a 16 din binding.
Yes they will increase your stand height, and yes they are heavy compared to most alpine bindings. But really unless you're doing some long tours the weight isn't a huge deal. I've done a few 10+ mile tours on dukes and I'm still alive.
First I'd decided if you are serious about touring. Because if you're not you should just get alpine bindings. They'll weigh less and be more durable (less shit to break/moving parts). I much prefer skiing rossi FKS or even marker jesters in the resort versus my dukes.
