Baller dchristman Posted February 19, 2014 Baller Share Posted February 19, 2014 I'm looking for comments on my cabin fever binding design. Does anyone think this might have potential, or am I just going to hurt myself? Note that I haven't actually ski'd on this yet, although I did do some jumping on the trampoline with it before a couple feet of snow covered it. Consider this more of a concept than something completely thought out. I think this version cobbled together with (really!) old parts lacks the lateral stiffness I would expect with Reflex, FM, Goode (none of which I have ever tried, BTW). I envision a u-shaped bracket under the heel to provide more lateral stiffness and to perhaps give it a positive click-in feel with rounded detents on the bracket and shell. "Why?" you might ask. Primarily cabin fever, but also because I really don't like the idea of moving to a binding that requires the maintenance of the current hard-shells or having movable, dangling, hard bits hanging from my ski. When I trick, I don't want to have to wear a shin-guard. I'd also like something less risky than the Approach bindings I've been slaloming with since 2006. Failing to heed the advice not to use them with an RTP, I did break my foot going OTF about the 3rd set out... then I bought the rear boot, DOH!
