8800 binding

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Thinking of getting a Dynastar 8800 legend and was wondering how much difference there is between the Look P12 lifter and Look P12 FR. Does the lifter perform significantly better on groomed trails ?

I typically like some lift. but I have the FreeRides on my 8800's and hardly notice any difference at all.

I have the lifters on mine and they seem fine. I ski a lot of bumps and trees on powder days in CO. The skis in general are surprisingly good in bumps.

I have P12 Ti Lifters on mine and am happy. Yes, you give up slight performance in variable snow/straightlining/air on a fat ski by not being mounted flat, but the lift gives them much better performance carving on hardpack. I still find them great in power/choppy snow with the lift. Also discovered that fatter skis rule slushy conditions this spring, you just plow through/over everything while those on thinner skis are getting mangled around.

Look lifters provide only 6mm of net lift. You'd be fine either way most likely. I have a few pairs mounted both ways (and some Looks mounted on a T-Plate for 10mm of lift).
