Bought a new pair of skis, Watea 84s, and now trying to find the best bindings for a bit of all mountain skiing and some small jumps.
Seen some good pricing on the 14's but both have a range starting at 6 and my din setting is 7-8 (5'11'' / Type II / 200 ish pounds). Is this too close to the bottom of the range and should I just get the 12s, which I can't get such a good price on?
Can't find any guidance from manufacturers on this but the accepted wisdom seems to be that your setting should be at least 2 above or below the max min respectively and ideally on or near middle of range.
I'm hoping to get more days in over the next few seasons than I have been but realistically, hitting the big 40 next year, I only see the aggression going 1 way (and likewise hoping to keep the weight where it is or even bring it down).
Tempted by the 14s, price and statement of intent that I've not given up the ghost on going big, but is this just the start of my mid-life?
Advice/thoughts much appreciated?
