Using old look p10s from probably 2005 on new line anthems?
Got some 2010 anthems i need mounted up for this season and i am trying
to decide if it is a good idea to mount my old look p10s on them, i know
i have seen people stil using them, and they r stil in decent shape,
but idk if i trust them on new skis, dont wanna have to take them off and mount something else and not get center mount. My little brother (who was def over 200 lbs at the time) used them for a season and they did fine, not in the park or anything, but i only weigh 170 to 180.
let me know your guys opinion on using these, def wanna save money but yeah.
(idk why i cant ever get the insert picture button to respond, maybe just my slow computer)
The binding itself wouldn't be a problem imo, as long as it's in good shape. The thing that does matter is the 10 DIN. I don't like putting my DIN closer than 2 to either the top or bottom of the DIN-range. Personally I don't ski my park ski's above 8 (and I'm 6"4 and hit 40-50 ft'ers, I ski at 7.5)), but that's up to you (and I wouldn't recommend putting them above 8 either, unless you are Sammy Carlson secretly). I'd say they do fine, but there's prolly some guys that are gonna disagree with me...
They will be fine as long as u don't need your din set above 8.
That's pretty much what I'm saying...
word, on my newer looks ive always had the dins around 7 or 8, and ive done everything there is at springs and some urban and all and done fine...so just wondering, what are the higher dins needed for? pow out west? and super big jumps? im stil learning some of these things
oh, and have you ever thought the pivot out heel is strange? it just seems like something else that can get beat up and loose...
Ye, first of it's what you do and the skiers ability. If you hit super big jumps, are a race skier or ski the gnarliest AK lines, you're gonna have to put your DIN much higher. The real big-boys in AK probably want their DIN's on 16+ (I wouldn't know just a guess), because they sure as hell don't want their ski's to come off, no matter what.
Secondly, it's the skiers weight and height. The heavier you are, the higher you should put your DIN because your ski's will come off easily.
