So do I have more of a choice if I go with consumer SL skis?
Another question about my big - When it comes to DIN setting, I chart at a lower DIN than an identical skier with a smaller foot. I assume that the theory behind this is that the bigger foot is spreading the torque out over a bigger area. Does anyone have an opinion on how this might relate to the flex ski I should be on? Assuming I have my weight spread out equally across my foot, then I am putting less pressure per inch than a comparable skier with a smaller foot.
Just a quick thought with respect to mounting bindings and large ski boot sizes. I had a pair of Blizzard Mag SL, the detuned version and mounted my 335 boots on them. Those skis are not thick in the area where the binding screws are placed, so it is very easy to push through the base or have some delamination caused by screws pushing against the base. So make sure your skis have some depth were the mounting goes or better yet a plate attached to the ski and have the bindings screwed to the plate. fYou probably want a riser plate anyway.
Interesting thread for a small-mountain, eastern skier who muses about spending time on a SL.
