Depends.

What brand/model skis?  And what brand/model bindings?

The skis are Icelantic Shamans and the binding is the Rossinol axial2 140 Ti pro XXL

 I would go with 120. The Rossi/Look brakes retract when the boot is installed. The ski will actually be a bit wider than 110mm since the waist is near the ball of foot and the binding is further back.

You can't get 110's?  It will actually measure out at 111, but it works fine. I use 110's on my Nomads and Shamans. I definitely wouldn't go with a 100, too much to bend. I actually prefer a Griffon or a jester. The Shaman is very light and the Griff/Jester's really make a great combo with the lightness of the binding. The wide interface is nice too.

General wide brake information here.

Manufacturer claims (page 9 of this PDF) that the XXL brakes should be used with 100-115mm wide skis.

What is the consensus on markers royal line because i have had bad experiences with marker bindings pre releasing and so has my dad?

post #9 of 10
Prerelease in Markers is generally attributed to the Biometric toe.  The Royal line use a new design.

I, personally, have only had a prerelease problem with my Dukes when the forward pressure was set incorrectly.  YMMV.
