I skied the new JJ's at Alta and they prereleased till I finally had the heel at 91/2 and the toe at 7. I always prereleased out of the heel on wallowed out narrow traverses like Greeley and 20 inches of snow at Alta where I demoed em with Z12 demo bindings. I liked em so much I bought the old JJ's, I know the new ones have a bit longer turn radius, for my quiver off Ebay for 200 bucks with STH 14 used 10 times..
Question, the tech Scott at Gold Minors Daughter said the demo bindings have less elasticity and while my din is like 6 I must ski hard. I do but I am 260 55 years old ex patroller at Mammoth. Will the STH 14's need to be tweaked higher than my 7 1/2 8 din setting on my RTM 84 or Aftershocks Marker griffon system bindings?
Do long 185, wide 115 skis often need a little higher din setting on an STH 14 ? Is the din setting just a guide where hard skiers often go up? I do not come out of the griffon system bindings at 7 1/2 or 8 but they are 84-86 underfoot. I have Griffon on my E98 they are fine in the 8 range. 29 shell 260 lbs type 3 skier
Pretty stoked to get the JJ's they ski so easy in alot of snow. Not the best on groomers but thats not what they are made for.
