Me: 6ft 230 lbs
I like to ski fast everywhere on the mountain, love fast carving. Would describe my style as power orientated (I'm more inclined to bust through stuff than go around or over it.) PSIA cert 3.
This is going to be my one ski quiver. I have to use a tyrolia/elan binding, as I will be pro reping them next year.
The ski: Elan Amphibio 88 in 178(maybe 186)
1. Elan AAAttack 16.
Flat mount binding with a toe design akin to the market jester.(except it is made by tyrolia which is +1000 points in my book) it has a 5-16 range. Still, being a brand new binding on the market I have reservations about being an early adopter. Anybody have extensive experience with this binding?
2. ER 17 FF pro
6-17 din range. race pro heal.
3. ER 16 FF pro.
8-16 din range. race pro heal (spindle). whats a spindle? do i need one?
4. Race plate? I have no experience with them on an all mountain ski. I've heard they make almost any ski a better carver, and are inconsequential in the off groomed. is this correct?
So what set up do you guys think?
