Look and Dynastar questions

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I just bought a pair of Dynastar Skicross 09's in 170cm. I am 5'10" 140 lbs so I think this should be good. The other size would have been 162 but I just felt that was way too short.

Anyway I am going to buy some look p12's (cause you have no choice) but 1 question.

If I buy the look p12's and then say next year get some new skis can I still use the look on other skis that dont require a specific binding?

The rossi bindings I saw at the shop only went to 10 DIN and the look p12 to 12 din. I will probably be around a 6 DIN and the guy said I should get the 12 DIN instead as it doesnt put as much pressure on the spring or something. If I get a rossi binding for a little cheaper and onlt have a 10 din settting would I be better to go for the LOOK?

Also do you think 170cm is OK for me? I am between int and advanced. By the way I live in Salt Lake City!

Yes to your first question.

As far as the 10 DIN goes, that's fine. That binding is perfect for someone of your weight. It's pure baloney that a DIN 12 would be better for a 140 lb. skier. I weigh 225, and have the P12's on 2 pair of skis. I'd prefer the P14, but the P12 works fine.

The 170 sounds just about right to me.

Look and Rossie bindings are pretty much the same. I use Look/ Rossi bindings on all my skis except one pair of R11 Atomic skis that have to have the atomic binding. To save a littel cash you can go with a P10 will be fine. I use botha 10 and a 12 and can't tell the diffrents. My normal din is set at 8 becuse of the travel in the LOOK/ Rossi pivot binding I set my Din lower and feel vary secure and safe. Make sure you get the pivot turn table heal! a 170 should also be good for you. But think about getting a something a bit wider for those powder days like last seasons Dynastar 74's they are an excellent ski and pretty much the same as this years ski.

Great too know. Thanks for the replies. I think I might go with a look/rossi binding with a DIN of only 10. I dont think I will ever be skiing over 10 DIN. The rossi will save me a little cash which is allways good if I dont NEED IT!

The main cash hog is going to be boots. I am going to check out some local shops for boots today and see what they got. I dont want to spend more than $350 but doubt I can get good for cheaper then that.

Check out Utah Golf and Ski or is the Ski and golf they are in Downtown Salt Lake area they always seem to have a lot of last seasons gear at good prices. they may not be the best at boot fitting call surefoot in Park city they were haveing a sale and they do vary good fitting at the Park City store. What shop have you been dealing with?

I was going to buy the bindings at the downtown Utah Ski/Golf. They wanted around $175 for the look p12's. The rossi were about $25 cheaper I think.

I havent looked for boots yet. I allready bought the ski's.

I just looked at that surefoot thing. Are they REALLY expenisive?? I was also thinking of checking out the Sports Den, Lifthouse, Utah Ski/Golf.

FYI, I have seen quite a few look/rossi bindings go on ebay pretty cheap.

Choose the bindings so that your DIN is in the mid range. If you need a DIN of 9, don't get the 10, DO get the 12. From what I've been told by several techs, bindings work best at their mid range.

I've been hunting for a pair on ebay for weeks. They're very hot right now, with lots of bidders, and almost all P12's are going for ~ $175 or more. Even those that look like they got missed, will have 5 people lurking in the final minutes, and usually end up in that range.

$175 is a fair price, but I think there will be less buyers in a month or two, so you could probably get a better deal then. But who can wait?

P10's can be had a little cheaper, of course.

Look p12 bindings

I have a new unused set of Look Bronze P12 bindings that I will not be using after having purchased them. I would sell them for $150 plus SHIPPING.
