I answered this already:

Al's has them for $60. (Ouch.)

OMG that much for a piece of plastic and metal? -.- Somebody should make these and sell them way cheaper, that is just insane.. The brakes I've got now is 100mm maybe I should just bend them?

This is why I shop for stuff like this in the summer. Backcountry had them for $25/pair in July. I bought two. Just in case. (And no, I'm not interested in selling them. Sorry.)

Why do I feel like I keep repeating myself?

Sorry, I know you already said that but idiots like me have a hard time figuring out that Look and Rossis are the same and I've just read on TGT that these could be bent (http://tetongravity.net/forums/showthread.php?t=130509) -.-

So I guess I'll have to pay, in DK these are probably about $90, so I'll be searching ebay.de for some XXL bindings How about markers?

"Can be bent" is not the same as "easily bent." I've bent Tyrolia brakes too. Once. Won't happen again.

I forgot that you're in Yurp. You may have better success there.

Why would I have better success here and with what?

Okay guys, I need some help deciding what binding to buy (I'm taking a loan ), I'm considering these:

Marker Griffon €160
Marker Baron €330
Dynastar PX12 €130
Naxo NX21 €200

What do you guys think? I really need to have the Naxo compared to the Baron; there seems to be a big gap in price, and I believe the Naxo is even a better binding Please tell me if I'm wrong, btw. I don't think I'm willing to pay twice as much as Griffon to get Baron, so if Baron is a lot better than Naxo, I'll probably just go Griffon.. But please give me some two cents

It looks as if Naxo doesn't have wider than 110mm Somebody help me please

Bump :O
post #83 of 85
Comeon, I know you guys know all about bindings.. It seems that the Naxo is not wide enough, so I guess I'm going for Marker Griffons.. Is this just wrong?

I have a pair of the powder 9s . Awesome for slush. Hit any firm snow and they are scary. No edge grip. Dimensions are 130, 110, 120 (measured them myself) @ 180cm. I keep them because they are the best mash potatoes ski I've skied. And I've tried many skis!
