Please recommend a binding for me?!!?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hello there, I am new to this Bear but would like to ask for some binding advice.

I am 5'7'' and 155lbs. I've been skiing for 8-9 years (just turned 22) and have spent the last 2 winters on the 07 Line Elizabeth...Freaking amazing pair of skis!!! I baught a pair of Jon Olsson Pro Models at the end of last season and have yet to find a pair of bindings that I want.

I am looking for the lightest possible binding that will also be able to handle a decent amount of abuse. The skis are for park and are light as hell, so far the Head Mojo 11's seem to be the lightest and most durable choice!

Anyone have experience with these skis and/or bindings? Any input would be greatly appreciated!!

Thanks,

Kevin.

You simply can't beat the rossignol FKS 120 (or Look race P12, tt8.0, etc), if you can find a pair. They are the 12 din version of the famous Look P18. If you can find the old rossi 12 din version with Geze toe, those are worth having. These are the old style look turntable heel that is still very popular with freeskiers. If you hit some ski swaps, you should be able to locate a slightlly used pair on old skis for cheap. They also show up on ebay, but expensively. You also have to bend the brakes (search TGR forums).

The salomon STH12 is fairly solid, a good choice.

Older salomon 997 composites are also a good choice.

All of the above are around 4.5 lb.

If you must have cheap and light, I like the Look NX series over those mojo's you're considering. Neither are super durable, but I personally think the Looks are better bindings. The NX 10 is around 3.5lb without lifter, and the NX 11 around 3.75lb. They used to be called Nova, and rossi also makes a version (axium?)....they can be found for under $100.
