Bindings for IM78

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Just got a pair of '09 IM78s from DAWGCATCHING before they change in '10. What would you recommend as far as bindings. Is one version better/worse than another in regards to Railflex or flat binding.What is going to give me the best feel of the ski/snow.

Go flat...I did on my 88s, love it.  I have the LD12s on mine.

I'd go flat for sure, if you are looking for snow feel.  I have some extra LD-12 and Peak-12 bindings, some new in box -- let me know if you go that route, maybe we can work a deal.  I had Peak 12s on my iM78s.

I've tried this ski with both flat and Railflex bindings.  If this ski is going to be used as a "50/50" ski...all-mountain, versatility in mind, the Railflex is a great choice b/c of the ability to adjust forward and backward on the ski. 


If you are going to use it as a groomer ski mostly, which is what I use it for, then the Railflex or Freeflex...something with a little lift, works great with this ski for carving.


If you are going to use this mostly off-piste, a flat binding might be better, but the pros of the RF binding on this particular ski so outweight the minuses that I still don't see why you would. I personally did not feel much difference in "snow feel" between the 2 on this ski.  It is a damp ski and snow feel is not going to be its forte either way.

For 50/50, and you want snowfeel, obviously flat will work well. Tyrolias of some kind are hard to beat for this ski. LDs if you want to keep weight down.

Weel thank you for responding. I gess these 3 post said it all. 219 i told Scott to just hold the 78s till i decided on a binding. I think it may be a better deal to have him mount them and ship to me instead of getting them flat and then getting them mounted up. But thanks for the offer.
