Curious what the general feeling is amongst the bears for skis that come both flat or with a binding plate combination. What does the plate (in general) offer? Is is similar to adding a racing plate to a flat GS race ski? Would you add it to improve/change the angle of attack to the edges? Have been thinking about adding the Kastle MX 78 to the quiver, but most of the reviews don't mention whether the ski was demo'd with the plate or flat.
So, two questions. First, specifically wondering if anyone has skied the MX 78 in both the flat and plate version and which you prefered (and why)? Second would be the more general question, as Kastle isn't the only manufacturer that offers skis in two binding configuration, what do you expect adding a plate to do to the skiing behavior of a ski?
