Line Supernatural 108

 Poster: A snowHead
Poster: A snowHead
Am thinking of getting some skis for powder days and back all mountain.

I'm a large chap (105rkg) and ski aggressively. Am happy off piste, on steep, icy, bumps etc....

I will be skiing for about 5 weeks this coming season in France hence buying instead of hiring.

I have two pairs of boots - Salomon xmax 130's (love 'em), and Salomon Xpro 120's with tech fittings.

Last season I started getting into skinning.

I've read a lot of good about the Line's.TH2 WTR16 bindings.

I'm also considering the idea of fitting them with Quiver Killer or Binding Freedoms and perhaps getting Dynafit Radical bindings for the touring days.

I'd be interested in peoples thoughts and suggestions.

thanks
chris

Hi Chris. I read somewhere that a lot of people make the mistake of buying skis for the conditions they'd like to ski, not the conditions they will be skiing most of the time. I read that after buying my Line Sir Francis Bacon skis, but no regrets as I love them and use them as my one ski quiver. Sounds like you'll be doing similar.

Others will be recommending a ski test day. That does make sense as I rented a few times last season also - didn't like Atomic Vantage 90s, indifferent to Rossignol Sin 7s, liked Dynastar Cham 97s. But others will say the opposite.

I am also in the process of replacing the bindings on my SFBs with tech bindings to do some short tours. I got Beast 14s from Jon at thepisteoffice.com. He will give you excellent advice on which bindings may interfere. My plan was to use them for everything as I don't intend to lug two pairs of ski boots around. I won't quiver killer them now. But it's easy to fit quiver killers in the same holes later, if I decide to get some lighter touring skis for example.

 Well, the person's real but it's just a made up name, see?

@Themasterpiece, let us know how you get on with touring bindings on your SFBs, I have a pair and might have thought they'd be too heavy for skinning but if they work they work, then it's just a matter of how much effort is too much so I'll be interested in your findings. Thanks!
