      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

What bindings are people rocking right now?

Recommended Posts

It's amazing how many companies are making tech bindings now in some form. Other than the standard Dynafit what are people liking? Have people had much success using Binding Freedom or Quiver Killers with two different hole patterns?

I quiver killer all my skis.  

they're a stronger attachment, but also make it dangerously easy to add skis and/or bindings to the stable.  

 

example: dps skis with g3 touring or kingpin resort bindings.  same or different boots.

 

original plan was to balance tech and tele.  tele is all but out, but getting the right tech binding is nice.  

 

adding skis now only costs the off-season discount and no need for more than one binding; and I always have the best ski for the conditions.

ATK race bindings rebranded as Movement bindings. Almost perfectly happy with their performance. Only bit I don't like is the release tab in front is not cup shaped, so it's difficult to depress it with a ski pole tip.  $275 at Telemark Pyrenees right now!

I have never prereleased from these. But I have come out of them when I needed to. When you buy them you pick your DIN setting.  145 grams.

My wife and I love our G3 Ion 12s! First time I've gone with leashes since my Silvretta 555s! Love them! 

When I was binding shopping, I was primarily looking for "apparent integrity" aka: show me the strength! I passed on any binding that had primary mechanisms made of plastic.
