But you have you Trekkers in you backpack instead. How does that go spinning?
Really, the only uptight person I can see is you. But if you really think you have copped a hard time here, go post your opinions over at TGR and see the reaction you get; you'll be the proud owner of orifices you didn't know existed.
Look man, I understand that they aren't ideal, but they work for me. I'm a lighter guy, and so I thought my opinion might reflect a female skier a bit more, especially one getting into the ski scene. I completely respect your opinion, I just think that if Trekkers are as awful as you suggest, they would be looooong gone. Also, when did I state I never have used tech bindings? I prefer a sturdy alpine over a tech; I will never feel comfortable in a tech. They make me nervous, and while that may be silly, it's how I feel. Plus, none of my big mountain coaches use them, nor any of my park friends. I may in the future, especially with this new Kingpin that was released. Would that be a respectable setup?
I do voice my outrageous opinions on TGR, and am accepted more warmly haha. I just thought being a racer and all I might fit in here more. Whatever. I need to stop caring so much too.
As for spinning, the weight distribution feels more natural for me, and doesn't add weight when I happen to be in a lift-serviced area without the wreckers.
Have a good season, send me your address so I can mail you boxes upon boxes of Trekkers. xD
