Jester or scratch binding?
ordered 177 volkl walls, im about 6'0 and about 152lbs.
i plan on riding 70% park, 30% piste
i know the jesters are like $395 at my local shop where i work but i get them wholesale so like $210 , or i was debating on the rossi scartch 140Ti WB in white or the axial2 black/white one both of which i can also get wholesale... what would be a better choice, plus the white scartches would look pimp on the walls =]
mm tough choice - im gonna say the scratch140, solid binding, similar din range (not that you need 16) - proven design, and it probably weighs SLIGHTLY less, not much though - those jesters aren't that heavy (contrary to public opinion)
I'd like to say jesters, but I'm not basing that on anything. They just look pretty sweet and I'm curious as to how they perform. You should get some, ski with them, and then tell me. JK
^I agree with them. YOu know the rossi's are good bindings, why risk it?
It's kind of like at a restraunt, except on a much grander and more expensive scale. Do you want ot get "the usual" or do you want risk it up and get something you're unsure of? It could be better, it could be total crap.
I say rossi's and then wait a season and read about the Jesters and get them next in a few years if they're good
straight up. rossi's it is, the jesters never did much for many anywho
The rossi's are a design that's been proven to suck. I know of several people, including myself who have broken a few pairs, as well as that they prerelease all over the place and are a threat to your health when they're on your feet. I know that nobody's ridden the new markers, but for that price and the fact that they're your only alternative to the PX/Axial 2 design I would go with them.
rossi's, i've got them, can't fault
