Watea 94 skis, Head Mojo 11 or Head LiteRail10? Please advise!

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

Hello! Fairly new here..

 

I did a search prior to posting, but did not find enough to satisfy my curiosity.

 

I am 5'7 145LB level 8 skier.

 

I am getting new Fischer Watea 94 170 skis and am trying to pick the bindings for them. I will be using these skis 60% off piste 40% on.   I would prefer to have the benefits of the adjustable bindings to experiment with fore/aft position and am considering Head LiteRail 10 bindings. http://www.levelninesports.com/Head-One-Lite-Rail-Ski-Bindings

 

Has anyone had experience with this combination of skis/bindings or similar, or can someone offer any an opinion on this combo?

 

Level 9 site lists Head Mojo 11 as one of the suggested bindings for these skis, but they are fixed, eventhough they fit within the budget. Any oppinion on those?  http://www.levelninesports.com/Head-2013-Mojo-11-Ski-Bindings

 

Doing some reaserch here, it seems like in fixed bindings people like to mount them on Wateas either on centerline or -1.  Any input?  Another reason I prefer teh adjustable bindings is to find out for myself...

 

Unfortunately I am on a very tight budget and cannot go over the price of these wto choices.

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Hmmm... no input huh?  I wonder if the LiteRail 10 binding is made jsut for Level nine store?  Can't find much about it on google either...

I've got Watea 94's, (170 CM) with Marker Griffons that I just decides to sell. They are in excellent condition. Got them 2 years ago - really great ski, look almost new - just have too many skis in my quiver and need to reduce.  PM me if you're interested.

I have the Mojo 12's and the Watea 84 - 184 from L9.  They are mounted on the center line and appear to ski just fine.  The only time I've come out of them, I needed to.

Out of curiosity, what is your boot sole length?

What is the din setting you plan to use on them ?

 

Might be towards the end of the range on the Head LiteRail 10 bindings

 

Also will the brakes that come with them work on your ski width or will you need to buy brakes also ?

My head monsters have Tyrolia binding (same manufacturer) and i am at DIN setting of 7. I looked at Trolia DIN setting chart and if i go to leve 3 skier, everything else being equal, i'd be at 8, so there is a bit og room to go. Not sure about the brakes. Level nine is closed untill Wednesday, so i will call them then
