Kastle fx84 - Binding recommendations

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 

Hi,

 

I just purchased a pair of kastle fx84 @168cm , I am looking for some help on binding recommendations and mounting position.

 

Me: 47, 145 lbs, 5'9". Ski groomer, bumps.

 

Any suggestions based on your experience?

 

Thanks

I have Marker Griffons on my FX84, FX 104's and have Marker Jesters on my FX94.  Haven't had a problem with any of these setups.  I am personally a huge Marker fan though.  I have the Tyrollia Attack 13's on my Blizzard Bonafides and haven't had a problem with those either.  I'd get whatever is on sale.

The Tyrollia Attack 13 seem to have a lower profile than other bindings, any advantages of having a lower profile binding for the Fx84 or in general?  I would think a lower profile could provide better response.

The FKS/Look is for elasticity and low stack height. The attack is for some elasticity, low stack height, and cost. Ramp angle is negligible on either, and that's probably more important. 

 

On an fx84, personally, I'd be tempted to mount a Head/Tyrolia freeflex pro myself, but I'm sort of weird on that one.

Not that I really care on appearances but the 2015 Tyrollia Attack 13 look would look very good on the FX84 :D

Oh, double check on the screw pattern width... summer haze, but I'm recalling Tyrolia/Head recommending a min. of 88mm underfoot, but I could be mistaken. Phil, do you recall if this is true? I'll text our rep if Philpug doesn't know.

exact same hole pattern as a Tyrolia freeflex.

ah.... there you go. That's right! Summer brain fade. Spending more time trying to figure out how to tune/adjust a front Sram derailleur at the moment. :)

Thanks for all your help, I went for the attack 13 bindings. I almost purchased the marker griffon but decided not too.

Much easier in and out than the Griffin.
