I just got a set of Salomon Shoguns and I'm looking for a binding. Looking to get Salomon STH 12 drivers to extend the warranty of the ski to two years. While I've been skiing for awhile I just don't know much about bindings.
I'm not an expert skier but I'm way better than intermediate. I like to ski off-piste and generally ski fairly aggressively, but no cliff hucking or back country jumps. I rarely go in the park but occasionally I'll do some jumps in the small parks. Right now I ski on K2 Public enemies with rossi axial bindings. I know the toe is set to 8 din, and I never pre-release. Even in small crashes my skis often stay on. I'm 5'11" and weigh 200lbs.
A lot of reviews I read say get the STH 14 or 16 at my weight, but I don't think I really need a DIN that high. 12 should be plenty
Just want to make sure there is no reason NOT to get the STH 12 driver.
Any input is greatly appreciated.
