Ski the blacks, any condition with ease (no park) Boots: salomon falcon 10 and salomon impact 10, SZ 25 (295MM & 297MM) Looking for binding suggestions and mounting posistion. All my other skis are systems.....so looking for guidance. Thanks in advance

I just got some extremes, and decided to put Railflex on mine.. Mine are the RF 11..I got mine at al's ski barn, but level nine has some good deals too. I got them so I could move them if needed.

People seem to really like the Look/Dynastar PX series for their all-mountain skis... I think they're good bindings, too. I use Head Mojo 11 bindings on my PE's and they also have the Mojo 12/15 to suit your preferred DIN level.

Here is it on sale for a good price, I think. Mount all the all-mountain mark since you're not going to do park.

I think that the suggestion to get a binding that is moveable fore-aft is a good one. The first pair of twin tips that I owned were scary when I installed them on the suggested mounting point. To much tail and not enough tip. When I moved the binding back they felt much better. Some of the new twin tips have 2 mounting positions. The forward position is for the park and pipe rider and the back position is better for all mountain skiing.

Thanks for all the sugestions folks. All good advice. I do want to stay with a fixed position binding. I think after much thought i will mount at the bootsole mid mark,since they are a 174cm and will ski a little short being a twintip. The look px is popular. I just want a very strong hook up and very good lateral power. Any other advise would be aptreciated. ( Make-Model )

+1

Looks (and the mirrors like Dynastar/Rossi) are excellent bindings with great elasticity.

+2 on Looks. There's a mounting scale on the sidewall. I'd mount midsole at 0. I (stupidly) had them mounted 1.5 forward. Doesn't feel right.

You want a look/rossi. I mounted mine (179) at +2. They are a great ski.

by chance. did any of you guys with twin tips add a slight riser plate?? or did you choose bindings that already had a slight 'rise' (not sure what the technical term is)i'm curious. If so, do comment.

Mine don't have a plate.
