what's up everybody, i've been lurking for a long time but finally joined for your expert advice. i'm generally a 20 day / year skiier who spends most of his time at vail, beaver, and mt baker. this past season i went out and bought the '12 armada JJ's (185), but haven't skied them yet.
I'm 6'1" and about 195lbs... I like to huck cliffs, ski trees, and occasionally hit a few kickers-- either manmade or in the park, but like everyone else, am focused on getting the best performance in pow. i was worried that the 195s might be too much stick for me to handle... should i stick with the 185s or look to sell the 185s and size up?
now i have to buy bindings too. i've been looking at the following...
So my question is, how nice is it to have the +-6 cm adjustability in the jesters? is it worth the risk of them breaking (because of the plastic)?
i understand the that fks 180 and the pivot are pretty much the same binding, and this seems like the lightest and sturdiest option. others seem to like the px 12 too as a cheaper option.
any binding recommendations i missed? how do you think these stack up against each other?
