Bindings for Trouble Makers?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
The trouble maker is listed as having an 81mm waist; the recommended bindings from the same shop have an 80mm brake.
Is there some way in which they go together?

I bet they work. Brakes tend to be a hair wider than the claimed width. If not, bending that small amount is not very hard. If these are the "recommended" bindings, chances are they are Looks of some flavor, keepin it in the family. Looks are harder than other bindings (ie Salomon) to bend, but are doable, especially for that small of a difference.

Thanks for the tip. In fact they are the same as the Looks, but now they carry the Dyanastar name: Dynastar PX12 Jib (used to be Look PX12 Jib).
I've wanted twin tips since I demo'd some last year; and these are supposed to be good in bumps too, so it seems like the perfect ski for when I'm not on the groomers.

Go over to TGR, search for bending brakes. Great video on how to git er done.

Don't post a question without thinking it through and make sure it hasn't already been answered in the post unless you're a 1000+ poster over there.

The two things are mentioned together so often it would be remarkable if they didn't fit. It seems like the TM is basically the reason there's a Dynastar branded version of the px12 Jib.

I just picked up a pair of these on ebay bundled with those bindings (but not mounted)--should be here Wednesday or so--I'll let you know if they need bending.

Next question: are you going with the "center" or "traditional" mount point (or somewhere in between)? I'm basically getting these for the park (where I currently have no skills) and for bumps (where I'm pretty good). I'm inclined to put them in the center, but wondering if the extra tail length gets in the way in tight moguls.

Gee, I was going to ask YOU that question!
There is a table that lists things like 80% park, 20% piste; 50 - 50; 20% park... etc.
I'll have to decide once I actually order them.
I plan to use them to enjoy myself skiing to and from the bumps, as well, on regular groomers.
I estimate that the bumps I'm looking at are 500' vertical; out of a 1600' vertical hill.
