Just purchased new skis for myself and my wife and I am looking for bindings advice.
Frankly this is the first time that I purchase skis w/o mounted bindings and I have little knowledge about bindings.
The Skis are Scott Black Majic in 184cm and Scott Luna 166cm.
We ski 80% piste and frontside powder. We do not intend to do any freeriding or touring.
Myself is approx 190lb, while my wife is above 130 lbs. We are both intermediates.
One important thing - I have two ski shoes and they are different sizes (one MP29.5 Technica, another MP30 Full Tilts, shells are 340mm and 355mm if I remember correctly), although subjectively they fit almost the same.
Thus I need some adjustment-ability in the bindings.
Also, since all the skis except one, that I had so far had adjustable bindings, I believe adjustability contributes to resale value?
So far my research has led me to the following choices:
Marker Squire 11, Marker Squire Shizo 11 or Scott NS10 for wifey.
Marker Griffon 13, Marker Griffon 13 of Scott NS14 for me.
Are these adjustable at least to the different shoes that I have?
Also, are Squires overall ok for piste? On Marker's own website they give 0/5 Piste rating for Squires (http://marker.net/products/bindings/squire-11.html).
Black Majic is 80mm underfoot, but Lunas are 85mm underfoot - are 90mm stoppers ok for both of them?
What are advantages of stepping up to Squire Shizo bindings?
Scott NS14 bindings look very similar to Salomon Z series. Are there any advantages/disadvantages that they have over Markers?
It is ok to get older model year bindings as long as they are new and the seller is reputable?
Sorry for many questions
