Looking for bindings for my recently purchased Stockli Stormrider XXls. I've used Freeflex for years and am happy with them but wonder if the Railflex would be a good option for an all around ski such as the XXL?
Tyrolia: Performance differences Freeflex vs Railflex?
this is whay people are going to say: neither.
Both freeflex and railflex have quite high stack heights for a wide ski. You should go with something like a look/rossi/dyna px12-18, marker griffon, jester or solomon bindings.
As for me, I go railflex on all my skis unless they come with some system setup. I like to use less bindings and its easier to haul 2 pairs of skis and one pair of binidngs.
railflex is cheaper than freeflex, although works alright for a rec ski.
hmm cannot figure out how to edit my post. But when i say cheaper for railflex i mena in price and quality. They are on plastic rails even if the bindings are metal. They eventually wear out (the plates). but are cheap and can be replaced. 3 binding positions is nice too.

Also have a look at the Vist Speedlock system; I'm gradually converting all of my alpine skis to this system (getting the plates here is the hard part). Currently 3 pairs of skis and one pair of bindings. And like Railflex, allows you to play with mounting position without redrilling skis.
