I am new to the forum and was looking on some information on people's experiences with demo bindings. I am considering picking up a slightly used pair of skis that are mounted with Marker Griffon Demo bindings. Overall, I know that you typically sit about 1/8" higher on demo bindings and I am curious if people really can tell the difference. Does someone have experience that can provide some pros / cons?
A little background to help. I am 5'11" and about 190lbs. I am a very good skier, but don't consider myself an "expert". I can pretty much ski anything on the mountain. I grew up skiing at Squaw. I typically logged about 20+ days a year between 5 and 25 years old. I tapered back as life got in the way.
I am finally in a position to ramp back up and bought a season pass for the first time in many years. I am 40 years old now, so not nearly as aggressive as I used to be in my teens and 20s, but still like steep, bumps, and powder.
