      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!

WTB: 7tm tour bindings

Recommended Posts

Hi!

I'd like to buy a pair of 7tm tour or power-tour tele bindings. Or if you know a place that sells them in Seattle or Snoqualmie Pass, I'd appreciate the info.

 

Cheers

Paulina

Marmot in Bellevue sells them:

It's odd, I know they used to be on the website, but they aren't there now. My wife and I bought both last years model, and this years model of the 7tm Power Tour Releasable binding from Marmot in December, 2010.

 

Here is a review, though the product sold is not the 2011 model, which we have and has the step in function.

That is my review at the top of the page. Awesome release-able binding. The Axl may have more performance and control on the back of the ski, but I willingly trade a little performance for a release able binding. And yes, they have popped off a couple times in big bad falls. But 98% of the time they stay on in minor falls. I think they are awesome.

Thanks Mark! I was at Marmot the other week and looked but didn't see them. Maybe I should just call them.

 

Meanwhile, if anyone has an old pair for sale, I'm all ears.

 

EDIT: Just called, and you're right, they do have them.
