I presume that you're looking for the binding with wide brakes, not the brakes alone?

Have you talked to ptex1?

no just the brakes, I figure it may be more challenging that way. That's what they are called, there isa griffon wtih wide brakes adn a griffon with std brakes, sorry to piss on your obnoxios rant.

Actually, it is not that simple... There is really no such thing as "standard brakes" in this discussion. As with Salomons at this point, you have a range of choices when you buy the binding. The Griifon/Jester/Duke/Baron give you a choice of 90, 110 and 132. I'm not sure I'd call either of the narrower ones "standard".

I presume you are looking for the not-quite-so-wide 110s? To me, "wide" would mean the 132mm ones.

BTW, you'd likely be ahead of the game if you could get the bindings w/132s for 229...

Guess I missed the "obnoxious rant" part ????? Maybe the spelling threw me? I have 110mm brakes only, should you need them.

Actually, I agree with the question/comment by mtntom (and alpinedad). "Griffon wide brakes" to me says 132mm Marker brakes of the appropriate flavor - stand alone. AFAIK, there is no binding called "Griffon wide brakes". That's just confusing. The only reason to assume you meant the binding was the listed price - which matches a Griffon with a 90 or 110.

So if there was a rant, I think the rest of us missed it...

just going by what I read but with doing more research, you are correct. I have the appropriate ones now. Much appreciated.

I think we're all a little touchy without snow.

Anyway, the reason I said I presumed that you were looking for the bindings with brakes, not just the brakes, is that $229 would be pretty darn steep otherwise.

And the reason for the referral to ptex1 is that I think he's putting together a Marker/Volkl preorder.
