What bindings for 4FRNT Uptrack Col?
Posted this in gear talk a few weeks back but figured I would get more answers here. Just purchased a 4FRNT Uptrack Col in a 181 (110mm underfoot). I am going to get AT bindings and am curious what people suggest. I am 5'10" 160 pounds and will be using them for small touring trips and side country explorations. This will be my first touring capable ski so I am using it as a sort of entry ski to touring. I normally ride an ON3P Kartel 108 with a Rossignol FKS 180 at DIN 11, but I am planning to ski these less hard than those and would be willing to go down a couple dins.
I am considering Marker Duke's/Barron's/F12's, Tyrolia Adrenaline 16 or 13's, and Salomon/Atomic Guardian MNC 16 or 13's. Or daymakers or quiverkillers?
I can only share my very limited experience. I had the Marker tours and they totally broke off the ski while I was skiing. The part the mounts to the ski is %100 plastic. I now have the Daymakers and they tour way way better than the markers ever did and the transitions were faster than the splitboarders so they worked fine for my Avy 1 class but now I'm considering a tech set up because I have to think I could go up faster and longer if my boots didn't weigh 12 pounds. Also when I actually tour there will not probably not be splitboarders and I don't always want to be last to transition. Kinda wonder if a tech set up will really hold up to the way I ski so thinking about some of the beefier versions like the ATK 14.
