Binding setup for Stockli Spirit Pro's

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Just bought a pair of 05-06 Spirit Pros, would like advice from Stockli people about bindings/plates. Am leaning toward Tyrolia Freeflex or Marker Piston Controls. Will this ski benefit from a racing plate or is it excess baggage? Ditto with damping devices on these bindings. Thanks, all.

I think my instructor put some plate on my spirits that he liked... ??vist maybe?? I remember he made me buy these old skis so he could steal the plate.... (skis cost nothing and far cheaper than the plate was worth)

My opinion is a race plate would be a bit overkill, the piston motion (mostly for the lift) would be good. A railflex would also be good. If you wanted a Tyrolia FF I'd look into a tyrolia plate like the CP13. Good luck, thats a great ski.

Beyond,

I am an amateur in these issues, i'll just tell you what i have: Spirit Free 170, Vist shock absorbing plate and Tyrolia freeflex binding (binding just happens to be freeflex, irrelevant with the plate...). The guy in the shop did recommend the plate (in fact, he recommended a race one) for better grip.
The ski is amazing.

Depends on where you are using the ski. I liked the flex of my Spirit Pros and they had a lifter/plate, but not the race plate.

If I was using them on ice, I may opt to put on a race plate to make them a bit stiffer.
