Are marker Baron and Duke obsolete?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

With the new F10 and F12 which are out?

 

I have a pair of barons i'm hoping to keep using for lift based so just wondering if the weight saving of the new models comes at the expense of anything eg performance or durability (too early to tell?).

Marker has no plans to stop selling the Baron/duke, the F10 and F12 are not as durable as the royal series binding.

No,

 

 They are actually two different markets. One is a downhill resort binding that can "skin". The other is targeted as a BC touring binding that can "resort"....I won't comment on how successful either are at their job.

 

In fact there have already been some durability questions around the new Tour series

But Marker is under attack by Salomon who is making a Duke copy that is less stack height and lighter, as my Solly rep buds tell me (hearsay).

They are making a binding to compete with the Duke, but it's kinda hard to be made obsolete by a product that isn't even out yet.
