Ho syndicate bindings

Not sure, but these look pretty good, can anyone answer me what say DC's have over these?

Remember seeing these in a photo before, or similar anyway.

no, but similar idea..

http://hosports.com/water_ski_boots/...e_exo_pro_high

it looks like they are sat on a plate which is then attached to the ski with quick release clips, just like toby's, they are slalom bindings, just a variation. DC type race bindings have been proven as ideal for skiracing, any innovation and ideas for better bindings are good, perhaps someday someone will come up with a better binding.. personally though id rather stick to a nice pair of DC's for the time being, i know how i stand with them, literally!

Bindings

Chris personally i would stick to the tried and tested.
I have tried the same bindings as Tody and have a complete set of parts if you want to try them.
For the record the best bindings I have every seen were produced by Nico, Dave sewell had a set a couple of years back.

The risk of injury from the wrong bindings as you start going faster is very high with some devastating consequences!!!

id use dc's also, but i believe the bindings Russel Cox uses are also very good, i have heard from a couple of users they are very comfortable, i believe the are called wedge's also from australia so would be tempted by these if i were to buy some new ones
