New Toys, AX3's

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I'm have new Volkl 7.24 AX3's in 170cm. I thinking of putting the Marker 1200 piston or Atomic centric binding on them. What are your thoughts? Don't worry, I know how to ski well, I have time to pick a binding so I figured I try and get some discussion going...

1200 Piston. I've got both bindings, and I like what the piston does. The slide thing on the Atomics doesn't do much for me. In fact, I skiied a whole day with one all the way forward, and the other all the way back, and never noticed until I put the skis away.

I have the centric binding on my 10EX's and like what it dose for the ski. I have a friend in NY that has the centric on G3's, she just made her PSIA II. I will ask her her she likes them. She was hard to talk with all last season, she was focused on making level II. I don't think she played much with the binding.

I know what you mean about haviing the skis in different settings. I skied the Blow Hole at Blackcomb with the bindings in different settings, (2 & 3). I didn't noticed anything strange. But when I have moved them to the back on powder days and forward on firm days, I can tell the difference. I can also feel the difference in the Marker SC bindings. I know some people say they can not tell the difference in the SC either.

I have also skied a buddies K2 Mach S with the piston, I noly skied them with the piston on, I felt they made the ski very stiff. I skied his other pair of Mach S's with the SC binding and liked them so much I didn't want to give them back.

I'm kind of leaning towards the Piston for my AX3's, but I have time.

What about 1300 Pistons? That includes the "Comshock Piston" which I don't think comes on the 1200.

Is that something new ? The 02/03 marker web site doesn't talk about a comshock piston, just the normal piston. I know where I can get the 1200 piston for a good price.

I just checked "ebay" yes the Ti 1200 piston from last year has the comshock piston. I think most of us have just changed the name to the piston binding, seems like we all dropped the "com".

You can trust what you read on ebay, right???

Actually the Comshock Piston is in the toe assembly, it is not the main piston (the one in the middle of the binding assembly, underfoot).

the comshock piston is in the toe piece as John J says & unless something has changed for this season it comes on the 1300 piston & up but not the 1200 piston, I have the 1200 piston on my mach s 174cm & my axis x pro 181cm, also have a new pair in the box waiting for a home on some axis xp 174cm when I find a good deal.
