STH14 Driver Toe or FKS120 for main Park Ski
Well, I lowered down my skis to 2 Skis, some beater skis for hiking rail days / some jumps here n there, and a pair of skis to do more jumps on and ride on the better days.
I'm 5'11" 145lbs, 317mm bsl I believe [27/27.5 SPK Kaos], Pretty experienced here n there,
2009 Lib Tech Pipe NAS 181
2009 Line Chronic 181
Salomon STH 14 with Driver Toes
I plan to ride the Lib Tech's on the better days / more jumps than rails but still do both etc, and ride the Chronics for more hiking / rail days, but still do jumps here and there. I'm wondering performance wise what I should put on what if anyone has experience with both or just one they would both be helpful.
Im just curious as to what I should put on what ski, and all specs via safety wise, how it drives the ski, etc.
any other info you might need just let me know,
these are stictly for park. maybe 5% of the time on groomers if that matters
both are good bindings, i would say put the fks's on ur hiking/rail skis cuz they are so durable, and put the sth's on ur other park skis. both bindings are good, but it is common knowledge that fks' will last

skiing isn't a sport, for most, it's a lifestyle. ~Scott22~
FKS on the skis you will jumping on the most.
Up lookin for a few more opinions but so far its been fks on jump skis!
up got 2010 suspects now so debating those and the lib techs.
does the warranty get extended on salomon if salomon bindings are on the skis etc?
opinions on bindings?
FKSs. the elastic heel hold is way nice on jumps, especially switch landings. plus the flex zone of the heel makes ollies way better

~I could carve off a jump so hard I'd come in forward and take off of it switch~
boots dont matter. salomon has no way to know what boots your setup was mounted for. salomon bindings on salomon skis doubles your warranty on the skis to two years, and warranty on all salomon bindings is 5 years. put the fks on the ski you're going to be hitting bigger stuff with where you're going to have higher consequences and want better retention.
Actually it does. They want receipts when you make a warranty claim. It matters. I have had to make a few of these calls for people and they are pretty strict.
sth14 driver are money bindings, put them on the salomon skis for the extended warranty...
