OK, Thanks, my brain is going on full spin cycle.
A couple questions.
Skiing a tele-binding heal down. Is there a tele-binding that can lock the heal down? Or do you mean balance centered over the ski with a 'free' heal?
I tried the 'free' heal on the NNN-BC bindings and a Karhu wide ski, for kicks and giggles. I was standing centered over the ski, in about 6 inches of mush, at Whitegrass. I hit a submerged rock, my alpine instincts took over. Of course, I leaned forward, and of course, there was no tongue pressure there. So, I caught myself by thrusting the tails of my skis out. Which, propeled me arms swinging, into the backseat. I rocked back and forth several times before coming to rest on my a$$. My knee didn't like that.
Hence my conclusion that, I need a fixed / fixable heal.
I'm confused by a lot of these bindings. Unless the description says that the heal can lock down, I simply don't know if it can.
Sorry, for my inexperience.
Also, That snow looks pretty wimpy. But... it had frozen crust beneath about 4-6 inches of new snow. I really had to force some turns, being so low angle. Quoting one of my friends I'm "As strong as a Tiger." Am I at danger for breaking a Silveretta 400-500? or the Karhu Guide?
