As some of you know I have recently purchased some Bandit XX and am very happy with them. Now my younger brother is trying to get some new planks and says he has been offered a great deal on some R11.2O in a 180 I think. He skis similar terrain to myself (mostly with me) but if anything is a stronger skier than me. He is looking for a ski that is 60/40 piste/off-piste and he has a tendancy to enjoy trees and bumps. He completely refuses to entertain the Bandits as I now have a pair and is keen on the Atomics. I know a lot of people rate this ski but I have heard some horror stories about the bindings, can someone offer some insight into a) whether the ski is suitable and b) binding performance. He is 26 years old, 5'11'' and abot 180 pounds. Thanks everyone.
