Just bought a new pair of 2009 Suspects...Anyone have a good recommendation for bindings for these skis?  First time buying skis without bindings so my knowledge of them is 0.

Someone feel free to correct me if I am wrong, but Look PX 12 Ti Lifters for a lil extra leverage, but not if you are a rail grinder, Rossi FKS 155, Marker Jesters, Salomon STH 16

I just checked around.  These are all good options.  Quite a few people have really taken to the Look PX12 Ti lifter though.  I would go for that, unless you are one of the hardest rippers on the mountain, then get the STH 16.

thanks guys appreciate the responses...so i decided to to go with the Look PX's.  just one more question though as i'm confused by the exact title.  Does it have to say exactly Look PX 12 Ti lifter? because i have seen listings for

Look PX12 Ti:

Look PX12 Lifter:

Are both of these wrong? i cannot find any listings where it fully says Look PX12 Ti Lifter...

I could have been erroneous in my first post.  the TI Look PX 12 is 5.6 pounds and I believe lacks the lift.  If you want light weight, go for that one.  If you want a little more leverage making it easier to turn your ski, even thought it's .2 lbs heavier, go for the lifter.  I went with the lifter.  There's also a JIB PX 12, I'm not sure what the difference is.

Well i have just one more question if you dont mind haha... i just noticed there is also i Wide version of the lifter binding.  I couldnt really find the exact specs on the Suspect but there are fairly wide and i feel as though i may needed the wider version of the binding. 

Lifter Wides say:
  • Brake Width (mm)
100
  • DIN: High
12
  • DIN: Low
3

Regular Lifters say:
  • Toe piece: Type Full Drive, anti-friction AFC plus, 6mm Lifter
  • Heel piece: PX composite, brake width fits skis 64 – 80mm
  • Weight: 1260g, Height: 26.5mm
  • Length Adjustment: 45mm.

I think the width of my skis may be more than 80mm?

 all of the PX 12s come in WB meaning "wide brake" for skis wider than 80mm.  If, say, you purchased these online, and they are the standard 80mm brake, you could bend the breaks, as it is only 6mm too narrow for the suspects.
