I've just recently bought a pair of unmounted Atomic R:EX in the 184cm lenth.

After buying new boots as well, I can't afford new bindings. I am planning on taking the binders off of one of my two sets of rock skis.

The choice is either a Salomon equipe 897 (no lift) or Rossignol FTX 100 X plate. The rossi bindings have something like 10 or 15mm of lift.

Do you think lift will be necessary or prove to be beneficial for the R:EX?

I ski the entire mountain from glades and trees to steeps and bumps and the occasional fast carved groomer.

THanks for any input
