Thanks... I am looking at new sticks and was really considering AT bindings.... probably stick with standards this year. Maybe next year, I might pick up some corresponding AT skis. My limit is 1 pr / skis per year.

I have picked up 12 pairs of new skis in the past 7 years....:blink:

Holy crap! On this I was checking out at bindings at suburban sports yesterday. I ended up not getting them bc I'm going to end up doing 95 percent of my skiing this year lift srrved, most likely

As mentioned by quite a few here on AZ, Marker's Baron fits the NE inbound/MEDIUM-outbound-skin-ascent pretty well.
Would like to see the max limit of burliness in that Onyx (G3)..

Thanks for the Chart!

I just took a look at the new Salomon/Atomic binding and boy did they ever copy the Marker Toe!! I hope Salomon will test this system out better than they did the Quest Boot with tech plates.


PS: Avoid Naxo bindings they make your skis flex in a strange way
