Every year, I head out West (I am from NYC) with the kids to meet up with my brother (he is from California) and ski for a week in Utah or in Tahoe. We are both expert skiers and we each have been skiing for about 20 years. I mention this because we intend to "share" this new ski. We are virtually the same weight but he is 2 inches shorter than me. We like skiing the same way.
Last week "we" decided to purchase the Rossi Soul 7s in 180.
Some days, he will ski it while I demo something else (or use my own skis), while on other days, I will use them while he does a demo or use his own ski. Please don't ask why we intend to share this ski - because it is what it is and lets just leave it at that.
Now here is my question: We both have the same Nordicas boots but he is on a 27.5 (with a BSL of 310) while I am on 26.5 (with a BSL of 305). With this slight predicament in mind, what are the best bindings we should consider for the Soul 7 that will allow a technician to "adjust" the settings for both 305mm and 310mm BSL boots? And yes, we are quite aware not to adjust the bindings ourselves and we intend to bring the skis to a mountainside ski shop to adjust the bindings for us whenever we switch skis.
I currently have the LOOK Pivot 14 bindings already but they are not yet installed because I don't know if the LOOK has the "adjustability" factor for both boot BSLs.
I don't know much about bindings (ask me about bikes) but we would consider Rossis, Salomons, Looks and even Markers. We don't need high DIN settings and NO, we do not want to consider any demo type adjustable bindings for this ski. Budget would be between $150 to $300 (give or take a few bucks).
Thanks in advance for the detailed responses.
