First AT Quiver? Questions on a setup...
Ok so I have Armada JJ Zeros already as my powder ski but I want to get into touring on them. They have a mount for Attack 13 demos and are set up with a pair of regular Attack 13s as of right now. My question is what bindings should I go with? I am looking at a pair of Adrenalin 13's and Adrenalin 16 demos (Demos are $150 and 13s are $180) that are in my shop or should I go with something along the lines of Daymakers? I have FT Booters so Pin bindings aren't really on my radar and I'm inbetween jobs at the moment so money is a bit tight but any insight is appreciated. I'm also probably going to sell my mountain bike so I can hopefully have some extra cash flow from there.
Also, skins? There are a pair of 4FRNT skins at my shop for $90 bucks so are they worth it? Or is the more high quality stuff worth the heftier price tag?
As always, it depends on what kind of touring you're planning on and how often vs. resort. The adrenalins are good frame bindings and that's a pretty good price.
If they're the new 4frnt uptrack skins then they are mohair/mix plush and manufactured by Black Diamond, so I'd expect the quality to be comparable to other skins.
I have ON3P steeples with old barons that feel like regular alpine skis while at the resort. The stack height is slightly noticeable at first, but it will not affect your skiing. I have BD Ascension skins (similar to 4frnt ones I believe) and they were pretty easy to set up if you work in a shop. I have yet to do a real tour yet, but I think everything should work pretty well
