Looking to pick up a proper touring setup this year. I plan to go with a tech binding, on a ski somewhere between 105 and 115 underfoot. I'm 6'1", 190lbs, ski the BC interior, and usually at about a DIN 10-11 with Pivots. I like fat slarvey skis, I've gone through two pairs of Bent Chetlers and absolutely love them, but for a touring setup, I wouldn't mind going a little stiffer and more manageable in shit conditions.
My first question lies in bindings...if I like to land switch (not sure if its feasible with tech bindings, part of my question) and have fun, drop, make jumps and potentially daily these as a slackcountry ski too, what kind of tech bindings should I be looking at? Dynafit Beasts seem like the best option out there from what I can see just due to the high release value, but the price tag makes me weak at the knees. Thoughts? How does Release Value compare to DIN?
As far as skis go, I have a set of Billy Goats from last year (not the tour layup) available to me for about 50% off. Are these going to be too heavy to be worth it if I plan to sack up the money for an all around lighter setup anyway? They seem like a pretty damn good ski for what I am planning to do with it, but I'm not entirely sure how much I need to consider the weight differential. No matter what I will be heavier (31.0-31.5 boots) but I don't want to drag anything I don't need or won't be worth it.
