Noob question about bindings

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Do any bindings go on any ski? Obviously the skis with integrated bindings excluded.

The reason I ask is that I found a pair of Dynastar 4800's for just over $100 without bindings. I would like to know what I can use and what you might suggest should I end up buying that ski.

6' 230 lb guy. I will ski mostly groomed trails, mostly blues, maybe blacks on east coast.

Your assumption is correct. I will say, with someone your size, get a 4-12DIN range binding, even though you might me a lower DIN, the beefier housing will hold up better.

Like Phil said^^.

Look PX 12 will be a good bet, you should be able to find a pair for $90-$120 online.

The only question that comes in to play is if they are new or used. Have they been drilled for other bindings already. Most often that does not create a problem, however, on a rare occasion, the holes may cause havoc with on another.

As for the actual bindings, Phil and michael are far more knowledgeable than I am in every regard on this topic.

Awesome, thanks a lot guys. I have seen the PX 12's and the P10's as well. Ski Center in DC would put the p10 on there if I bought from them. I will research those 2 models and decide.

I can't wait to have my own complete setup. Now we just need a few more snow storms out here. Thanks again!

Look & Rossignol bindings are identical, both excellent when the model is suitable for the skier, so buy the better priced one. You can also consider suitable bindings from any other brand...I like Tyrolia Railflex where the bindings can be moved fore & aft to find the balance point that works best for you. The plate for these bindings can be put on any flat ski.

I would avoid the P10. The PX12 is better for less money, normally.

PX12 or Rossi Axial2, which ever you find cheaper (they are the same binding).

Really? I would mount a Pivot 10 over a PX12 any day of the week. But I weigh 65 pounds less than the OP, which is the only reason I can think of that he should mount the PX12 over the Pivot 10. If he had access to both a Pivot 12 and a PX12, he should choose the Pivot because IMHO it is the far superior binding.

Thats good to know about the Rossi Axial12 and the PX12. There is a lot of that in the scuba industry as well. So many different products from one production line. I will keep looking for the deals.

I have noticed that some bindings are metal and some are plastic, some are combinations of both. Is it preferable to have metal over plastic vice versa?
