Head PRD14 S vs PRX 12 S

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I recently purchased a pair of '16 Titan's 177cm which came with PRX 12S bindings.

 

I stuck with Titans as I've been on them for past three years and love it, although previous pair was size 170.

 

It appears most places sell these skis with PRD 14S so I wanted to know if there are any advantages between these two?

 

From what I've been able to dig up online, it appears that ramp angle is biggest factor and its higher in PRX than in PRD? This is all rocket science to me as I'll do only about 20 days a year and never got really technical into the equipment aspect. I would rate myself as intermediate-advanced skier and wanted to see what everyone's opinion is regarding the binding choice I've made, and had i gone with PRD 14 would this be a noticeable difference to an average skier?

 

Tons of thanks!

The PRD toe is screwed to the moveable part of the binding plate. What does this get you? The ability to shim the toe piece if you want to eliminate ramp angle. The PRD also used the 'tank tread' as it's AFD rather than a Teflon pad.

Thanks for your feedback!

 

I forgot to mention, since I have another pair of new heads which I'm selling, they came with PRD 14S on them, would it be worth swapping them out? I'll be keeping my Titan's for at least 2 seasons.

Up to you. If you want to shim the toe, then yes.
