Binding preference

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I'm shopping for bindings and looking seriously at Marker M51 or Salomon S912 ti. I'm a 6-1, 220lb recreational, mostly East Coast skiier. Present ski is a 2003 Dynastar Skicross 9. Any ideas, thoughts, suggestions, recommendations? Thank you.

Look p12 or Rossie 120 same binding under the skin. Whatever is the cheapest of the 2 Isn't the M51 a much older binding?

Utah49 has it right...

Salomon Can't keep me in.

5'9" 255# DIN of 9 or 10 PSIA LII Pro, Eastern Skier, Hard and fast but slowing down a little at 49 yrs old. All my life Salomon bindings have not been able to keep me in when skiing the bumps or the deeps. I popped out of my Pilot 8s Sunday in 2 feet of powder (Yes Windham Mountain got 2 feet!!!) Markers keep me in at a DIN of 8 where Salomons I need to set at 10 or better.

Personally I think the Salomon is the lesser of two evils. But as Utah 49 and RJP said, go for Look/Rossi pivots given the choice.

Pivot heel Binding are the easist to put on in deep snow. there is nothing worse then attempting to get your boots perfectly clean of snow while standing on a steep pitch. With the pivot heal you can force you boot into the heal and clean off the snow later for better binding boot contact. i set my own din at 7.5 or 8 I'm 5'8" about 185 lbs and a few years older then 49. By the charts my Din should be a 5.5, in any other binding at that setting I would pop out every third turn. After skiing my new powder skis for a couple of days i realized i had never ajusted my din up. i was skking knee deep powder all over the mountain at 5.5. I'll never go back to marker or solli again.

Present skis are Dynastar Skicross 9, 186CM. Will "look" into Look/Rossi. Thanks for help/suggestions.
