I was fortunate to win the raffle at ESA Snowmass (thanks K2 and Nolo!!!) and selected a pair of Coombas. This will round out my quiver, which also includes Atomic Snoop Daddy (88mm under foot), Fischer RC4 SC's and Atomic TM:x (84 under foot mounted with Fritchi's for AT; I use them with Lowa Struktura AT boots, Ascension skins). Also have my old R:ex's for rock skis.
My conundrum is trying to decide what bindings to put on these. I have been toying with several possibilities, as I think that I might want to be able to take these into the BC as well as use them inbounds when the powder is flying:
1. Marker Barons (I have no need for the Dukes, as I am only 130lbs, and ski on a DIN of 5.5-6). Great inbounds performance and safety, but heavy for touring, have to take the ski off to switch modes.
2. Fritchis- ? less robust for inbounds, ? less reliable safety compared to Barons (is this true?)??
3. Dynafits- super light weight, fantastic binding, but can't use with alpine boots, would need to get new AT boots, would limit use, so probably least likely option.
I am kind of leaning towards the Barons, but would like to hear if anyone has compared touring on them with the Fritchis. Also, if you use either one with 2 sets of boots (AT and alpine) how much of a pain is it to readjust?
