I am choosing a binding for my new Line MP's Opus ski. Trying to decide between Marker Jesters and Dukes. I already have Jesters on my other skis and I normally ski in places with lift access. However, next season I am thinking about trying to for short skinning trips - hence I am considering the Dukes. I have a couple of questions:
- I understand that Dukes stand a couple of cm higher than normal alpine downhill binding. Would Dukes feel much different from alpine binding such as Jesters when skiing downhill? Line Opus is a wide ski, will the higher position be noticeable?
- What break side would be better for a 118mm ski -- 110mm or 130mm?
Thanks in advance for replies!
