The Skis however are like carving knifes on the slopes and very impressed, once you learn how to ski these they are very good carvers and I see why a lot of racers use them.
The Dynastars are nice, just not use to the heavy binding yet of the PX18s. Also what is the 1/3 Beta Sticker I see on all of your skis?
Sounds like you need to move the heel piece back one hole on the plate. I didn't have a 325 to adjust it so guesstimated. Yeah the heel of all the look px bindings takes quite a lot of effort to open when you get into double digit dins. Just the design, got to push hard on the first one then use your boot on the second one. A bit more of a PITA when you are coaching and have no poles, I usually try to use a gate in that case, they bend more than a ski pole though!
The 1/3 beta sticker is the edge angles (base/side) and the wax (holmenkol beta). I. Find it helps to keep track of what I have put on when I am doing several pairs.
The px18 is heavier (about 12 ounces/ski) which is why I don't like it in the slalom but not usually an issue on the gs.
Btw, I noticed an identical pair of gs for sale on ebay, much more expensive than the ones you bought though.......
