I just bought some new skis (Head Rev 80 Pro), but they didn't come with bindings. As someone who has only skied 20 days in my life, I really don't have a great sense of what kind of bindings I like or what my preference is for binding position/angle, etc.
From another thread I started (on skis, not bindings), mtcyclist kindly recommended that with the Head Rev 80, I can go with the Tyrolia AAAtack13/16 bindings, or the PR11 bindings which require the Power Rail.
This brought me to wondering what the benefit of the Power Rail is as opposed to getting non-rail regular bindings. Does the Rail make it easier to adjust fore-aft position without re-drilling? Are there other benefits?
I read a few threads, like this one, which suggests that the positioning of the binding is quite important to performance. So as a relatively inexperienced skier who may need to find his sweetspot through experience, does it make sense to get bindings that are easily adjustable? For example, this thread suggests that the Atomic-X series binding is a good choice as it allows for "on the hill adjustment to 7 different positions". I don't know how much of this is marketing and how much of it is important.
Basically, I just want a binding that will get the job done (don't need a crazy high DIN) for my 80mm skis that will allow for tweaking fore/aft if needed. Any tips to help make this a less daunting choice?
