Jester 6-16

I would go with a Look as well...good elastic travel

sorry to jack a thread...can the Dynastar PX 15 JIBs be mounted without the JIB plate....my understanding is that that plate is the only difference between the px jib and the pax racing...any confirmation would be helpful. I don't really want the jib plate as it may result in a loss of energy transfer to the ski (don't ski park; bought the JIBS bc they were on sale)

marker jester toe piece adjustment

I like the Marker jester but i am frustrated by the fact that the toe piece doesn't have any upward/downward adjustment. If your boot toe gets worn down even just a little I think you start getting play in there. Does anyone else have any thoughts on this?

well, not too many bindings have an upward/downward toe adjustment. The sth16's do and that's about it from current retail bindings. Salomon used to produce several bindings with such and adjustment but they removed them from production because they didn't find it beneficial to the average binding buyer.

So, not sure what you want from your Jester unless you're comparing it to the sth16 but you're right ti doesn't adjust.

as for the PX15 question, you can lose the Jib plate but watch your screw length, you'll probably have to grind the screws so they don't damage your bases

Those are probably the only ones that don't suck. There are some others out there but none I can think of to recommend. The Atomic Race series comes to mind as a binding available at retail with toe height adjustment but less than desirable performance.

The "solution" to the problem is to lift your boots, cut to near max height in the toe, and reapply new lifters once or twice a year. Gigantic PITA.

What do you mean by "lift my boots"??

no connection to this shop, merely searched the google:

This shop claims they are the only suitably equipped shop in the whole UK, but I'd bet you have several shops nearby capable of doing this for you. Maybe ask SierraJim.

Shouldn't be a problem, as long as you have shorter screws. The jib "plate" is just a rubber lifter isn't it? You could swap out the jib lifter with a regular px lifter... not that I believe you'll feel much difference.

Spring Corn,
I just noticed that your location says "Truckee." Go to the Start Haus and see the "Jims" (if you haven't already). I'm sure that they can find a binding for you.

I always thought light weight plus a bit of din meant Salomon.

STH 16s, mate.

Have them on my 139-waisted mavens and they're sweet. Metal structure and plastic housing. (I would prefer the metal housing of years past, but honestly don't need it.) 16-din and they weigh the same as Fritsches, for crying out loud!!!

They mount flat.
