An ideal situation is to fall somewhere in the middle of the DIN scale of a binding.Shoot back the other stats to see if you are better suited for a higher DIN binding or not. Dave
Height is 6'1 roughly, BSL (if I'm correct on what it is) I'll have to check as I'm not with my boots right now. They are a 29.0 Salomon Impact 10 CS (2009). As far as ability, not sure how to describe. I can charge down runs as difficult as double black if the surface is groomed or relatively clean and keep up with some guys that have been skiing for 20+ years. That said, I have only had a few opportunities to ski powder, and as such am pretty gimpy in it. Big, steep moguls are still quite a challenge, but I have fun in mid/smaller bumps. Not afraid to head down steep, cruddy, difficult blacks I likely shouldn't be, but I'll sometimes take falls on the way. Overall, pretty new to the sport (had my 25th day on skis this year), but I'm happy with how I am progressing thus far.
When I rent skis, I pick type II, but they usually release a bit easier than they should -- at least that's how it feels.
Options moving up would be the PX15, or maybe the Jesters?
Not that it matters, but I can't say I like the look of the Looks. Jesters seem hard to find right now. Unless I want to pay Marker MSRP.
All these bindings seem to mainly focus on park/pipe. I can't say I really spend any time in either, though I might start fooling around in them next year, we'll see.
