So whens the last time you purchased bindings?
for me: 8 years... I see no reason to upgrade.. I got a DIN of 14 on my Marker Bindings. I dont see any revolutionary changes in bindings other than fancy pretty graphics... woo f'n hoo!
They are functional and safe. Old.. and they work.. and I rarely see DIN of 14 on anything.
Go for it... tell me I am wrong and why?
I dont need a "I hate marker bindings" debate.
"and they work"
dude, YOU HAVE MARKER BINDINGS!!!
nah, if they work for you, that's sick
last time I bought bindings was when I bought new skis, which was about 7 months ago. I like to keep my old skis around and mounted, so every time I get new skis, I get new bindings
three weeks ago. broke my markers haha
every time i get skis i get bindings. i always like to have some urbs or rock skis sitting around
my p10s are on thier fourth or 5th pair of skis but i like my p10s and they really havent changed much and i have a bunch of other bindings that go on to the old skis
about 8 months ago, but that was because I was fed up with consumer bindings and bought FKS's, I think I'll snag another pair for some pow skis and then hopefully I'll never have to buy bindings again.
i bought some scratch 120's like a week ago.... still waiting to try em out this weekend
Like 3 years ago and the only reason ill ever buy new binders is if i buy some fks or something.
me too. hasnt been for 3 years since i upgraded though. but i took my old bindings and put them on new urb skis i bought off here (longer appropriate length) an d bough the scratch bindings for my ghettos
its been three, butim impressed with your 8
I've been on mine for about 4-5 long seasons and I'm with you, but I did change my toe piece last week cause mine was missing pieces and my boot could move inside of the binding, and I just jacked the toe piece off an old pair of skis I had lying around
As long as all the pieces are there, they work, and have the Pivot on the heal piece, I see no reason to change them until it breaks. I find it a waste of money to get new bindings when your old ones work perfectly fine
got some deadbolts at the beggining of last season cause my other binders broke. planning on keeping these for another few seasons
Bought some Dynastar bindings a couple weeks ago after my salomons died
Thursday. I brake bindings every 8 months at least.
haha ...kill it
Last summer, some p12's. 12's serve me perfectly, but if I break em, probably Deadbolts, unless something more solid appears that wont fuck over your ACL.
Two years ago. I have two pairs of Rossi Axial 140s (turntable heel) that I rotate though my rock and park skis, and some Salomon 914 FIS that I use on my pow and everyday skis.
About 18 months ago - p12 jibs
last week. new skis=new bindins. solly sth16s. sick
s916's for my pow skis
fks 185's for my park.
both are ninjas, s916's are wide breaks
i'm set for a few years.
i ordered a pair of mojo 15 about 20 minutes ago.
As long as the bindings are safe, use them. No reason to upgrade bindings that you like.
3 years ago. Scratch 100's and I'm not gonna buy anything else until these break.
i snagged some fks 120s about a week ago off Ebay
I've gotten two sets of FKS's this season, the most recent of which was about a month ago. I shouldn't be needing anything anytime soon unless the bindings on my AT or rock skis blow up.
i used to do that, but eventually you get to the point where you have extra bindings laying around from retired/broken skis . Like i have 2 sets of Axails laying around waiting for skis, but now that i think of it, i have some new skis to mount on to.
i bought new bindings with my new skis
last time i got new skis which was around a year ago
like 4 years ago, they were markers, and they broke, 3 times...............
the last bindings I bought were six years and three pairs of skis ago Look P10s and the've always held up, but now they're getting old and I'm skiing way harder and they're about to fall apart
i have some look p18s that i got with my trouble makers 5 years ago and have had them mounted on about 4 different pairs of park skis. i see no need to upgrade until they brake. i am getting marker dukes soon for touring though.
yesterday, rossi 12 for my new volkl bridge
cant wait to shred this setup
Pair of 816's last week :)
Waiting to mount them, till I get a pair of decent skis. Don't want to put thme on my Fujas, since they're already remounted once
just bought some dukes today but i will have those p18s on my park skis until they explode
for me: 8 years... thats a long life for bindings
i got sth16's month ago. very good and light this far...
by any means your sth's should be heavy as fuck.
I rocked my solly 912's for 4-5 years and finally retired them this year because one toe piece was having problems. Picked up a pair of deadbolts 412's and love them and hope they last as well.
Every time I get new skis! Bindings are under tension and will break eventually.
My Motherships have Solomons that have DIN of 12
My Karmas have Rossignol with DIN of 14!
I've had a pair of marker and a pair of geze bindings that each blew up at around the 6 to 8 year mark. Literally, springs and pins all over the run, that's why I carry a second pair as backup.
Haha, was that supposed to be funny? Because I thought it was.
abouut a week and a half ago
What was funny about that? I have a pair of Volkl Karmas with Rossi bindings that crank up to 14!
well,, pretty much most bindings go to like 12+ so 14 isnt very special... but u sounded all excited about it
Thanks smart guy, we are all very enlightened by your insight on the matter. I was highlighting it because the author of the freakin thread was asking about bindings that went to 14 FFS! It's called being helpful, fuckstick!
Do you little pencil necks have anything worthwhile to contribute to this site or do you just like sounding retarded? Sick of all you little shitheads!
i have one more pairs of bindings than skis
your the one who sounds like a retard you cunt pump
but i bought some jesters around thanksgiving which go up to 16!
then i have 2 sets of fks155s, one from mid last season and one from the seasom before
ive been on my axial 120's for about 2 winters now
my rossignols go up to 18!!!!!!!!
my salomons go up to 16!!!
haha jes playin.
i had markers last season, broke them, i had salomons for part of last season, wrecked my knee in them cause they didnt release properly, i have look p12 pivots now, best bindings yet
I bought my axial 120's in august
30 minutes ago. Rossignol Axial 2 140 TI pros from work for $71. Wheeew.
