Come to think of it though, I did get a pair of NIB Salomons at a garage sale that looked alot like the 957s. It was about 8 years ago and I gave to my brother for his skis. I'll have to check if he ever got them mounted. He ran into knee troubles about then and pretty much stopped skiing.
Well, like current model bindings, different years used different color schemes. The problem is, inferior bindings looking externally similar also used different colors.
Generally, the good stuff from this time period were labeled LAB, Equipe, or Race.
The plastic variants had a bunch of different names and is generally stuff I would not ski on anything other than a groomer on gaper day. Many times they were helpful in putting stuff like "Composite" in the name- Example 977 Composite.
There are also demo versions of the Equipe series that are less good. I have a set of 957 Equipe demos. The good news is they are all metal, but they had a tab track heel and some other things that are less good that I don't really remember at the moment.
Speaking of which. Does anybody happen to know what screw lengths I need for said 957E Demos to mount? I would like to remount them, but I am missing some screws that I don't know how to replace.
