griffon or schizo

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

i just ordered a pair of k2 recoils and am having trouble deciding if i want to go with a standard griffon, griffon schizo, jester, jester schizo, or jester pro.  the jester pro is sick and i basically want that because it's bright green and very few people will have it.

 

i intend on getting into the park a little bit and will be riding switch now and again which is what draws me to the schizo.  even though the ski is not perfectly symmetrical, it is very close and moving the binding to center will help me improve with riding switch.

 

suggestions?  any downfalls about the schizo system?

This is so unlike you...you usually ask...after..you buy eek.gif. I kid...

 

If you are planning to learn how to ski switch, the Shizo is a good option. We have them in stock and can ship Monday.

i work at a ski shop so getting them is no problem,  i just feel that sometimes the suggestions of my fellow work mates can be a little bit biased so i figured i'd go to an outside source for some help

Great question! How did you plan on  mounting the recoils and do you plan on using them as a park only ride? The reason I ask this is if you plan on center mounting them the Shizo gives you the option to move them back into a better All Mountain position. I'm not a park guy but I was amazed how much better a Liberty Hazmatt I was testing skied all mountain once I moved the binding back to a traditional mounting point. Having a demo binding on the ski I was able to move back little by little and let feel guide me. On the other hand kids on our "Team" will only center mount their skis to ride the rails.

+1 Schizo opens up all your options

I am not usually a Schizo fan either but here is where it makes sense.

A can of flouresent spray paint can make Griffon's look a bit like Jester Pro's  - for a lot less $$$$.
