Same zombie, different thread.

The recall was in 2011.  My understanding is that the Kastle bindings are now manufactured by Tyrollia, not Marker, and the problem was with the Marker binding.

Hard call, Zombies have no brains and a head shot will get em', Trolls have brains focused on arguing, and head shots stimulate them. I'd go with Trolls. He did this on another thread, too. PO'ed about very old news, three year old recall that he claims he never knew about, claims his (Marker) bindings broke so he can't take his Level II exams, various other very sketchy story lines, has decided to go after Kastles in general, especially I guess since they no longer have any affiliation with Marker. :rolleyes

 

So how's the weather in CA?

Worrisome, since World War Z (book, superior to film) was won largely by first retreating to very cold places. CA may be losing its cache. Be the first on your block to move to Hudson's Bay!

I ski the Canadian Rockies and I like to ski everything: tight places, bumps, trees, crud, groomers.  I value maneuverability and quick turns over top speed, but still like to lay down some long GS arcs every now and then.  I feel like I'm talking myself into the 168 but as Dawg had recommended earlier, ski the MX series at or below head height   For me, I'm exactly 178cm tall.   At my weight (165lbs), will I lose some of the fun factor if I chose the longer 178s?  Or will I lose some of the go-anywhere abilities if I chose the shorter 168s?
 

 

I also haven't ruled out the MX83 in a 173cm length.


Any advice would be great.  Thank you!

 

The fx84 (in 176) would be very very nice for what you want to do... Yes, it is less damp than the mx88 at high speed ( so a notch under for high speed carving and crud) but it is still a solid high performance ski, a really nice carver and still nice in crud but not a crud buster... On the other hand, it is more lively and it is a better choice for tight places, bumps and trees. I recommand you this ski eyes closed...

 

The fx94 (176cm) would also be nice... It is a mix of the mx88 and the fx84 in the sense that it is a little more stiff and stable than the fx84 but also a little less of a carver...

 

Outside of the Kastle world: the Bhrama would also be nice...and you can still find some magnum 8.5...
