Cheap bindings, that aren't total crap. And a mounting question.
I'm really low on cash after buying my Silencers, and now I just need bindings.
I won't be in the park a lot at all, maybe 15-20% of the time i ski is in the park no rails either, so they don't need to be tough as shit, just beefy enough to take a few hits from hidden sticks and whatnot in the glades.
Now shoot me some suggestions.
And If I was doing say, 50% groomers, 25% glades, 20%park, and 5% pow, where should I mount my shit?
Help a brotha' out!
What skis and in what length?
PX12s are fairly affordable and would be a good binding for what you want - durable, but not overkill.
You need 179's, fix that problem and it will be easier to help you.
You need these:
why buy silencers if you're doing like 20% park? thats like a super uber jibby soft ski that sucks outside of the park.
Shoulda upped for PE's or some chronics or something a little bit better outside of the park my friend..
Dude at 6' you need to be on something longer than 159's - thats the first issue you should resolve
Also if you're low on cash after buying silencers, how much did you pay for them?
Yeah, you need atleast 179 silencers. And why silencers in the first place, they arn't made for all mountain what so ever.
For bindings, i'll suggest Look/Rossignol PX12's
dude, return the 159s, and get a 179. at your size and weight, 159 is horrible, especially considering you actually wanna ski them on the hill.
as for thier all mountain performance, they are pretty soft torsionally, so the edge grip is not nearly as good as youd want for all mountain.
Buddy im 5'3 and im rollin 159 fujatives all over and there working great. fat enough to float me but no too wide to be bad in park. Who the fuck recommended u to 159 silencers for all mountain?? whered u go for ur skis walmart?
OH FUCK.I am a dumb cunt.
I just realized that it was a really bad Idea to post that late at night, or rather early in the morning. Don't really take too much confidence in the percentage numbers.
50 all mountain
10 everything else
They are 179's and I'm choosing them over everything else 'cause I'm getting a sick ass fucking deal on them. Not to mention that my out of the park skiing consists of a lot of switch trickery and dorking around on the cutoff trail kickers. that coupled with my old skis being fucked to hell, its time.
dont be a nub. get px12's, mount them true center, and learn to ski park. forget all mountain skiing, just ski the park, theres enough mountain in between the park and lift to have fun anyway.
