Too much ski, too little binding

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

I recently picked up some Head Monsters 88 (175cm).  The seller mounted brand new Marker EPS 10.0 bindings.  How big of a deal is it to have lower end bindings on skis meant for advanced/aggressive use? And I do intend to push them.

 

Thanks so much.

No biggie.  The lower end Markers are still good solid bindings.  I've never had a problem with them.  Checking here, the DIN maxes out at 10... as long as your usual DIN is below that it should be okay.

be easier just to put a comp 14 or 16 on it (or Comp 20 if you want the best of the breed!)   That way no need to redrill the ski as IIRC the 10 has the same hole pattern.

ScotsSkier just drives big 'ol screws right down through the toe and heel ledges of his boots and into the core of the ski. No use wasting time with shoddily built fuss-budgety crap like "bindings." wink.gif

Edit: Just to be really clear, I taunt you because I like you, SS.

If you have to ask, then those bindings will be fine for you. Sorry.

 awww c'mon Q!!    I didn't mention the Marker 30s  :D 

 

Just to clarify, i am not that familiar with the 10EPS but IIRC correctly, it is a pretty lightweight toe on it,(and the toe is typically seen as the achilles heel on the markers) and hence the 10 is not usually used much for anything half serious. I certainly would not like to push hard on it.  

 

 Once you get to the Comp 12/14 the toe is better.  Even the lighter U12s are usually running at least the 12 (and of course the Comp 20 is pretty bombproof!)
