I have a lot of experience with Markers, and my son's had 3 sets, but after he's now broken two, I'm seriously considering switching him to the Look Piv instead of the Griffon. Any firsthand experience with these two getting hammered in park use?
This isn't a brand or style thing, I just need to get him situated with a solution that doesn't pre-release often on landings and can handle daily rail and jump duty without any problems.
I heard from some experienced free skiers that their gear gets battered (skis last two months), but didn't take it seriously until now. Holy cow, second set of boots this season and bindings are getting hammered.
I had a shop tell me to go with the Looks, but wanted to ask you guys for an unbiased opinion (with firsthand experience from heavy park use, either you or you kid).
Thanks for your input, much appreciated!
