Selecting Bindings for 09 Legend 8000's

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
160lbs Intermediate( 5-6ish)95% N.East skiing ,one trip West hopefully .30 to 50% off piste is my intent ,My Din is 5 1/2 but I think I need 6 after a few close one's .Probably no moguls because of my low back and overall lack of skill .I can get a good deal on Mojo 12's and maybe px12's .Will look's riser plate give me an edge/control advantage ? or is it minimal ? I also understand that if I use the Look/Dynastar's that it doubles the warranty ,I am not worried about that .I also will probably be upgrading my Mission rs10 boots for 2010/11 if that matters .I think I will be happy with these ski's regardless .Thanks for any input at all .

Will using adjustable railflex type setup really enable more uniform flex and/or better control....?Or should this nt be a concern at my skill level and low Din setting....?

Just get whatever bindings you get the best deal on. If you are intermediate, and use a 5 1/2 DIN, most likely you are not going to push your equipment to failure. Specifically with these bindings they are pretty bomb proof.

I have the px12 with lifts on my powder setup, and find them to work well, and I am sure I take them places and do things beyond your skill level.

risers make getting the ski on edge easier (more of a lever to work with). So if you need that, do that. If not -- then don't.  As for allowing the ski to flex easier, it's going to be a minimal difference for you.

As for your second question, railflex is nice because you can swap the bindings between skis very easily -- have them on my cheater gs skis. Otherwise compared to flat bindings, the looks (for example) -- I don't see any noticable difference in flex.. and if anything the railflex perhaps is more stiff.

good luck and enjoy the winter on your new gear

Just watch www.tramdock.com as I see the PX 12's often for about $90.
