These are a really solid entry level binding that will work for almost any casual recreational skier, and maybe more aggressive, but lighter skiers. For a price point binding, there's a lot of metal in these, which gives them a really secure feeling. The toe piece has a nice wide grip on the boot and the heels lock down with a confident snap. I would recommend these for beginner and intermediate skiers. Heavier, more aggressive or advanced skiers would probably be better off with an STH binding.
