can anybody elaborate on the twister and the mentioned 1360 gr binding?????
The binding isn't 1360 gr - that's the low end weight of the exclusive skis.
As for elaborating, what do want to know? I've got the twisters with the tyrolia sl 100's. They weigh nothing, won't cut through anything, are skittish on groomed stuff, no fun in powder, basically, the realskiers review has these skis nailed: "zipper line moguls and nothing else." I haven't had any prob's with the bindings releasing/not releasing (although, as mentioned, the DIN's are maxed).
All that said, the combo has three real problems with it: 1. They ski so well in moguls that you realize just how poorly your "all-mountain" skis really do perform in moguls, 2. They ski so well in moguls that all you want to do is ski moguls, and 3. Your girlfriend gets pissed when your excuse for hitting Palavacini for the 10th straight time instead catching the last of the new tracks on the East Wall is "but I'd have to go get my other skis."
Trust me, the last one sucks.
