Mail for help.Help!!

Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

If the shift didn't exist then yes but the removable toe is a issue for me.

I’m getting them on new Freeride skis. Looks like the best downhill binding with a PIN mode. Have Shifts on another pair so will compare

I'd be interested to hear why you think that?

Ok weighs the same or more in uphill mode as my F10/12. Doesn't hold me to the ski any better/wose. Doesn't fit all boots (need tech fittings). Doesn't adjust for many sizes. Expensive. Bits to loose. Kinda pointless marketing junk.....guess I'll see a lot on the hill.

For occasional use (more like backup uphill mode in case I end up in the wrong place) I'll stick with my F10's
For Touring use , real tech bindings - See Plum/Dynafit/G3/ATK etc.

BTW, I don't mean that as any kind of trick question. This season will be my third selling the Shifts and I'll be selling the PT's also (arriving mid Aug).

Have Griffons on the DPS 124A’s which feel really solid as a downhill binding. Shifts on Blizzard Rustler 11’s also feel good but not as solid as Griffons. I hear Duke PT based on Griffon heel so expecting it will be the most solid Freeride binding downhill focused with occasional touring which is my gig. And Non scientific but all my Marker experience has been good.

 After all it is free Go on u know u want to!

I hated my grifons, loved my vists (although more chance user error than bindings).

PT 16's and 13's just arrived although that means another new jig Evil or Very Mad





I've had a lot of enquires re whether the new PT will work on skis mounted for Jester/Griffons.

The PT heel has the same L80mm x W32mm pattern as the Jester/Griffon but the metal insert worm drive track is a lot longer to give the greatly increased length adjustment.

The PT toe has a L46mm x W38mm pattern compared to the L31mm x W36mm of the Jester/Griffon.

Here's the PT mount in red alongside a Jester/Griffon mount in black, both at 300mm bsl and both mounted on the line. The heel holes are identical. The PT's toe locations straddle the rear toe locations of the Jester/Griffon by 15mm and 16mm so there's more than enough room for a conventional mount and sufficient room for a QK/BF mount even if the original mount was with inserts.



It's a pity that there's 2mm difference in the mounting width at the toe but if you wanted to use one of the pairs of Jester/Griffon holes then you'd end up +15mm or -16mm off the mounting line (assuming the same bsl) so very few will want to do that. But if you did want to do it (ie when there's a difference in bsl) then if you mounting the PT toe with inserts then the insert would enclose an original conventional mount and you'd be good to go.

So kudos to Marker for giving Jester/Griffon users the ability to upgrade their bindings without incurring any mounting hassle.

If anyone wants me to check the mounting hole compatibility with a different binding then advise the make/model/bsl of the existing mount plus the bsl for the Duke mount (if different) and I'll overlay the jigs to check.

And yes, the Duke PT's work great with Quiver Killer inserts and I have the screw sets in stock.
