Been Skiing for 30 years but this is the first post on a Skiing Forum! (Yes, you can teach an old(er) ski dog new technology tricks)
Several years ago I came across a set of new-in-box Marker M31 SC2 bindings. The original list price on the box was posted at $260. But discounted to $14.99, I couldn't resist taking them home even though I didn't have a real need for them at the time. I have a use for them now.
What are people's opinions? I skied for many seasons up until two years ago on Marker M44's, which look to be the same vintage/technology as the M31's. Never had a problem. Never had an injury related to the bindings. The M31's fell off the indemnification list a few years back. I suspect that's because of the number of years out of production, rather than the bindings are now considered unsafe? Has technology changed so much that more recent bindings are much safer?
I am a moderately aggressive skier, but have always set the DIN below that recommended by the height/weight/ski level/age/sole length calculators. Currently, I'm doing 7. The M31 is a max 10 DIN binding.
Thanks for comments.
