skidemon22I have Dukes on my Gotamas (aka Jesters) and they are solid, tho a little heavy. I have STH 13s on my salomon rckr2 100s, those have been great in terms of releasing when they should.
CHORIZODo u think its worth it to pay more and upgrade to the 16s?
skidemon22Unless you are at bobby brown's level, no. the STH 13s have a good screw pattern and the composite material is pretty strong. I ski pretty fast and weigh 165 and ski a 8, 9 or 10 DIN. never need a 13+ DIN unless you are pro level... my park skis (volkl steps, soon to be '17 volkl kinks) have the latest version of the griffon, and those are more than enough for me/ most people.
shin-bangI'm Just gonna have to drop in here and say I love the extra beef of the my sth2 16s. I'm glad I spent the extra 30 bucks to get the 16s. As I run them at 13 where as my fks are around 11-12. So I figured the 13 would work for me, I just went for it and got the 16s. Coming from fks there's quite a few people who have had to run a slightly higher din on the sth2. So I just have to kindly disagree to the "you only need a din of 13 if you're pro". As for me I wouldn't want to go any higher or any lower din. They're perfect for me and what i like to do
