Maker Jester Pro vs. Rossignol FKS 18
Hey need some help on this since I've never rode either of these bindings before. So I'm a very very agressive park skier (5'9 180lbs) 50ft+ jumps, big hand rails, and hard landings are usually a everyday kind of thing. So I would defiantly prefer FKS 18s, however I can get the Jester Pros for $200 cheaper. My question is how durable are the Jester Pros? I've hear a lot of negativity around Marker compared to the praise of FKS, so I'm just wondering if these are for me.
I need to know by Wednesday so if you have any thoughts...
Super aggressive park skier? FKS.
Have I ever own them? No. have I even rode them? No.
But at least 80% of the serious park riders who got off the lift today were using them here on Buttermilk mountain.
This makes me an expert.
Seriously though I've heard FKS is the shit for the park. Marker jester pro is probably be a good choice but the technology in turntable heel sounds really good.
I think my next pair of park skis I will get FKS. Wish they made FKS in a 12 din again. I'm nowhere the point of needing a 14 din in the park.
A lot of people say marker bindings are great, but a lot also say marker bindings are crap. A fair ammount of pro's seem to ski markers, but I wonder if pros without binding sponsorship (free bindings when they break) would pick Jesters over FKS or STH.
