NewScholarThanks for the reply. I'm just hoping they're not too noodley. I'll still need to be able to teach kids to ski and therefor they'll need to carve in some way or another. Anyways as far as bindings go, Evo has a cheap pair of marker griffons. I'm a big dude (6'4", 200lbs) so they should be alright for me. Any other suggestions would be noted.
There's no way they'd be too noodlely for what little, if any aggressive skiing you'll be doing teaching kids how to ski. That would only depend on ability as skier quite honestly. I'd definitely go with the bigger size if you do happen to choose the Vandals (186 cm) at your build.
Just mount them in a progressive mount (center mount, or near it) and it'll ski well both outside the park & for progressing in the park. It will also ski shorter this way, making it easier to throw around. I'd apply this to either ski you end up choosing.
As for the Griffons, they were my first park binding back in like 09'. I liked them a lot, they were light & fairly durable for plastic. Idk how much they've changed then but I believe they have a max DIN setting of 13, if you don't think you'll be sending huge disasters onto rails, hitting cliffs or hitting large jumps I'd say you'll probably be fine. If I were you though, I'd look for something more like 16-18 DIN setting as you're a pretty sizable dude. The worst thing ever is having your bindings eject when you don't feel like they should've.
For reference I set my DINs to 13, with 16 DIN bindings. Someone can correct me if I'm wrong, but it's not ecspecially good for your bindings to max them out to their highest setting.
Hope this information helps & happy shredding
