Another DIN/Bindings question
Ok so last year I bought a pair of 4frnt bindings (deadbolts), when I went to get them put on by my local ski shop they said that I weighed to little at 90lbs. So this year I was going to go back and see if they could put them on I now weigh 104 pounds. The bindings DIN runs from 6-14 so I'm thinking I could get 6 or seven set?
Just a quick question, for weighing should it be just my normal weight or weight with boots on? thanks +k for serious answers.
It isn't just weight, its your ability and the ski as well.
If you are a very aggressive skier (I am) then 6 could be alright for you. If you are more mellow and youre on something like an invader then they still may not be willing to mount them.
I'm 5'7 and 110 and fairly agressive. My pipe and all mountain are at 6 and my park are at 5. I had my all mountain set to 7 until I had a very very bad fall and didn't eject when I should have. Could have been far far worse than it was had I gotten knocked out at the beginning of the fall instead of the end...
I'm sort of an all mountain skier but am in the park a lot so should I try for a 6? My skis are 4frnt stl's by the way.
the shop will set that for you when you get them mounted, but it'll probably be about a 7.
