Ya know tonyjerry i was gonna post a similair post myself till I seen this.

I need to get a pair of new bindings for my Dyanastar Legend 8000s for the coming winter. I am definately going with Look /Rossignol bindings but I dont know much on the new PX bindings. I know the look p12 or 14 are a good proven binding with the pivot heel.

Give us some info on the new PX style bindings, I know we have some gear gurus in here who really know thier sheet. Lay it on us please!

There have been at least two major threads covering this. Someone might have the links.

This should be from one of them:

Actually saw quite a few of tehm on the slopes last season...all on Rossi/Dynastar sponsored riders (racers & free skiers).

The bacis Idea was to update te heel. The heel had 2 issues to watch out for. First, It could jam w/ snow on the sides or more likely it could jam & displace the plastic on the inside while using a tuning vise or boot. This was only an issue for me on one pair of skis ; I tried the swix vise & things popped out & needed to be fixed w/ the plastic forward pressure piece on the heel
Second the heel only had so much travel to adjust to a wide range of boots. This was not ever an issue b/c I'm done growing & a ski snob who does not share equipt.

Neither of these things is a real issue for the upper level skier on this forum. The new design claims to couple the heel better & has more travel to adjust. This should help shop folks & online retailers b/c it will be easier to mount/adjust & will not jam a easily. This system is not as easy but closer to how the marker does on size mounting.

I am really on the fence too here, we have about 8 sets now of pivots in the house. I have my 2 new skis that need to be mounted this season...I think I go w/ the pivot 14s again & give the PX seires a serous season of consumer abuse.

But, irip, the new heels are not pivots any more, right?
