Hello - heading to Japan this winter and expect to be doing 50/50 touring and in bounds skiing.
Currently I see the new Salomon/Atomic Shift binding as the Holy Grail and will likely select this. However, should I be hesitant as its is the first generation?
I anticipate/hope/dream that I will being skiing in deep conditions so I am looking at skis ~115mm underfoot (give or take 5mm) - toying between Line Mordecai, Atomic Bentchetler/Backland or K2 Pinnacle? Are there others that should be on that list?
Im 6'4", 185lbs - so with pack and gear on im almost certainly going to require the longest model of any given ski ? Unless there are any words of warning from you guys...
I'd appreciate any tips and feedback on my choices mainly to highlight any elements that I may not have considered?
Thanks in advance
