Look Pivot 12 vs Marker Jester

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

I've got a decent deal on a 2013/14 Marker Jester for $229. I could also just buy a Look Pivot 12 for $249. (It's December so no off-season deals.) I'm going to mount them on the 2013/14 Blizzard Cochise at 9.5 DIN. The Pivot has a max DIN of 12. The Jester goes up to 16. But, seriously at 9.5 DIN, is there any reason not to go with the Pivot? I really don't care about the $30 or the extra weight. The Pivots seem to be a superior binding. I love my boots so I'm good with minimal adjustments on the heel. I plan to use the bindings for several seasons so the durability of Pivot is a significant plus. My ego struggles with a 12 DIN binding... but from what I can tell, the Look Pivot 12 is just as durable and high performance as the pivot 14 and 18. Let me know what you think - thx!

Open to debate but as you know the Look is considered by many people to be the best binding made. However if ego is getting in the way here's a Pivot 14 for $220 although with big brakes.

Pivot 12 or 14 are not all metal but they're certainly burly enough for a 9.5 DIN and many years of use. Elasticity, short boot print on ski are all good. Get them.

Can't go wrong with either one but I would go with the pivot

I think either would work also. Both are nice bindings.
