Fischer RC4 Z9 versus Fischer Z11 freeflex

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Looking for opinions/suggestions as to which binding would be more suited.

 

My boy's specs are:

10 yrs old, 150cm height, 35kgs weight, advanced, bordering on expert skier.

Boot sole 300mm, DIN 5

Skiing RC4 WC GS Jr 150.

 

There's not much info out there on these 2 bindings, other than what you find on the Fischer site.... all about features, but nothing about non-tech info that a parent could use to help decide on suitability, so looking for other people's experience. For instance I read somewhere that Z11's toes are not designed for race (which seems a bit odd!!).

 

Z9 suits +28kgs

Z11 suits +31 kgs

 

Thanks.

Go with Z-11, will function better. More elasticity, will read movement better.

Thanks for the feedback.

 

I tend to sway towards the FF's as well but I was worried he may be at the bottom end of the recommended +31kg weight range and that he may have trouble getting them to flex properly.
