I have had experience with Marker and FKS/look along with Salomon knowledge. I am telling you right now not to get Marker unless your goin all out with the jesters or jester pro becuase the bindings are made to be lightweight, not to last for serious park for years. I have a pair and they are good if you are intermediate, but it sounds like you are not so, and basically Marker park bindings are not going to hold up, they are going to chip and break, and they, unless you get the best of them, are not going to be very low profile. FKS IS THE BINDING TO GET!! I love them and they have saved me more time than I can count from terrible, possible injury falls. They may be heavy, but if you get the FKS14s then they will not feel heavy because the toe is made of a lighter material, so all of the weight is right next to the leg, making it feel very light, basically an extension of your boot. I would strongly recommend these for park, also they give a great feel to the ground, nice and low. Salomons are my Coaches preferred ski. He used to be a pro and knows all of the Armada team because his brother is Josh Bishop. He says that when he was pro he rocked the Look race bindings and said after switching to Salomons, That Salomons are the best, they just take the most attention to get perfect. Its like a Harley Davidson, They are the best, but they take a lot of Tweaking and attention. Kawasaki is still a good, but its not as cool and you will never need to worry about them. That is what he says. If you want to go for the most durable park bindings available, get the STH 16 steel driver toe in his words again, But I dont know about that because he is a pretty powerful guy and can handle those kinds of bindings. I personally love the FKS and will only ever try another binding which would be the Salomons, and unless they are just amazing, then I am sticking with FKS/Pivot until I cant ski anymore simply because they are amazing and keep me from completely dying on the big jumps and trees and from tweaking my knees from beyond repair.
