Those PLASTIC Look 99's WILL blow apart on you...if not today, someday soon. If you enjoy the retro skis stick to metal Look bindings, you will have fewer bad surprises.

We have a little thread going about just this very thing.....

Sorry for the bad photo, but aren't these them? I haven't been back for another look and I wasn't taking notes. If interested, let me know. I'll bet they are still on the shelf.

I don't know. When I'm back in Frisco, I'll check them out. What mondo size or Boot Sole Length (BSL) would work for you? These are probably a 9 US, but I'm just guessing from the location on the shelf that I remember seeing them. If they are right for you, I'd pick them up for you. Cost of boots with tax plus shipping at cost. Are you in the UK (need UK sizing?)? The price of the boots is probably $25.00 US or there abouts.

I'm always happy to try and unite equipment with their rightful owner.

I'll take a look when I'm there next. These are in a consignment store in Frisco, CO; not mine. I'll report back when I have details.

Hi,

 

I see a few of you have the legendary HP 99. I have a pair from the late 80's I would say. Gray metal with black plastic attached parts with the red "sensor".

 

I had posted in a few other forums  that I'm trying to find parts for them. Any information is appreciated.

 

Thanks
