New Rossignol Freeski2 Bindings vs. Used Pivot 12's?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Any recommendations on mounting up a new pair of skis? I have a brand new pair of Rossignol Freeski2 (axial2) bindings that I know nothing about or a used pair of Look Pivot 12's  (with about 75 days of use).

 

Pivots appear to be a better binding, not the true turntable, but the heal release sideways at least.

The heel of that pivot a la New Coke does not release sideways, check to see if the brake is wide enough for the ski you want, either way, the Freeski2 PX is the better choice.

The 'real' pivots don't release sideways either. Not really 'New Coke' / 'Old Coke', more like Urban Legend.

So wanna school me on the benefits of a pivot or turntable heel vs a regular fixed heal?  Not hucking any cliffs here, but want to go home with all body parts working.

It looks cool? It's relatively light? Shorter mounting base? Allows the toe to perform slightly better by allowing the boot heel to rotate as the toe is releasing? All viable reasons to want the Pivot, but really everyone who buys them does so to look like they're bad-ass. Anyone who claims otherwise is lying.
