I have the chance to get a 2010s Line Blends in 168 with either a Marker Tour F12 or Marker Griffons for little money for me...
I am a - as I think - very good skier (I am skiing for 28 years now - I am 30 years old ;-) ) and I want a ski for good powder days, but which also works on the slope for some hours a skiing day... I am 1,70 m tall and have a weight of 62 kg (around 136 lbs).
I would like to use this ski mainly for backcountry skiing with ski lifts in ski ressorts. As I mentioned before, the ski will also be taken for some slope skiing sometimes (as I sometimes go skiing with my family - and they're not so into powder skiing :) ) - but generally I have some other skis for the piste (elan magfires). Probably I'd also like to play around with the skis on the slope - some backward skiing and small (very small) jumps...but for sure not often, just if it's boring to ski with the family ;-)
Now I am a bit unsure, which bindings I should take...Marker Tour or Griffon? Is the Marker Tour stable enough to "survive" some small jumps and playing aroung on the slopes? I don't want to use the ski in the park! This binding would give me also the opportunity to make short tours (as I know that the Ski will probably not be very lightweight)...and that would be great.
I get the ski really very cheap - it was used about 6 skiing days (with marker tour) - up to now mainly for alpine skiing...
What is your opinion about that?
Would be happy to get any advices! Thanks and best regards from Germany!
