SavageBiffThanks guys I have multiple setups and descent education on bootfitting etc I was looking for more review like reply’s
And maybe should have asked .... is there a binding and boot style that apply a for to jumps etc.... shock absorption
I got a great all mountain setup I’m looking to add a park specific setup this year
SavageBiffSniff what out seems like u guys spend ur time searching for trolls. I educated myself best I could and was looking to those who might know more. I know what to buy like I stayed before I was looking for others opinions on different equip u dick , and there are park oriented boots like Dalbello impro some boots do have a shock absorption quality
I’ll do all my own research and stay clear of this sight 🙄
SavageBiffWas also wondering is a softer flex is preferable for landing big jumps?
Plz keep in mind I’m looking for personal reviews as I can’t demo everything on the market b4 I buy and I’m buying a setup I’ll only use on park days
I get that everyone’s experience will be different and I trust myself to fit my boots better than most boot fitters Bc I know my feet my setups both perform and are comfortable for me when I freeride I just thought maybe park might be different is all for flex , like maybe a 110 is nicer for landing jumps than a stiff 130
I also don’t trust when a company says a ski is this flex is rather hear from another 190lb 6,1 skier that the ski has good butter support for their size in the real world.
As far as bindings idk anything about them ... are 2 piece better than single for park? I’d like lightweight myself can barely spin a 360 on my chronics with attack 13s
I’d like to hear something along the lines of the boot with your last instep calf size performance needs and skill and flex that’s meant for u is the right one but u can fine tune it from there make sacarifices to get what u want per situation
I came to this site to expand and fine tune what I know with assistance from other skiers maybe make a ski friend not troll or be a jerk or throw advice back in people’s faces , I wasn’t trying to b a dick when I said I was educated I know some things I don’t know others and I’d trust the reviews of you guys more than a salesman I can sell and fit myself for equip
I did do what I consider a good bit of research , I’ve spent months reading on skis boots bindings , I ask ?s here Bc I figured some helpful dudes would be able to help me understand what I’ve already read .
The boots I have now are perfect for comfort I have Rossi track 130s with custom molded footbeds, they are comfy , they work , but is there something that out performs them idk so I asked the question I asked above wasn’t hey what’s gonna work for me, my question was , simply hey is there a genre of boots outfitted towards park was my ? I got my answer between my research and the answers some have provided
As far as bindings questions were the same I’m 6 ft 1 190-215 depending lifting season or not
Far as skis I know what I’m getting my chronics r my beaters I’m looking for a lightweight ski full rocker for park as well as a whole other setup for when I go out west
As far as barely pulling 360s ya I lied I’ve never landed one I hit the ground around 270 sometimes I can butter into a landing I usually eat it I’ve never skied with a partner not once so I’m like teaching myself
Far as bindings they are center mount that I’m sure I don’t know why I can’t spin , I can ski , can’t spin 😩
$ not really an issue I’m lucky enough to work 100 hrs a week and take the winter off
Anyway thanks man
ElimitchBoots really depend on the size style and skill of a skier but if your looking for a cheap and reliable binding the look nx10s are very good
Rum_HamThose are kids bindings...
SavageBiffNever said I thought they’d make me better, said I was looking for style specific setups AND to get better I think a lighter ski with a tru center mount maybe 5cm shorter would in fact make me better at spinning 3s than spinning a 192 no my chronics aren’t 192s don’t make em that big was just stating
I’m surprised someone hasn’t recommended I buy the ones with the dopest top sheet which I’m gonna probably buy a set of wets for that reason and that reason alone so I can look at em :)
Anyone able to spin a 3 without a jump? Just jump and spin at maybe 5mph?That is how I’ve been trying/training havent tried on a jump yet ,I do squat pull arms to side and low spring twist blah blah , still I’m landing maybe 270 , sure id b fine with the air
