Looking for a new ski/binding combo, and I'm wondering what people out there are using? If there is already a thread like this, please direct me.
Thanks.

There are a few threads out there simular to this.
I upgraded to a 04 66 in. Mapple with Bio front plate and rear toe plate. Took a while to get used to it and get it dialed in, but I love it now. :D

Ski king, do you prefer the rear toe plate? Why no double boot? I'm asking beacuse I've found a good deal on "new" 2004 Bio front/rear boot.

I am just used to rear toe plate and was afraid to change....
I almost went rear plate but changed my mine last minute, could have had rear boot for same price.

02 Phantom W/ dbl Animals, I went to doubles 16 years ago, and couldn't imagine skiing any other way(I would like to try hard boots, however)

I'm on a '02 D3 with '05 D3 high wraps since the spring. It took more than a couple of passes to get used to it but now that I know where I'm supposed to be on it, it's faster and smoother than I could have ever imagined.

I like the dbl Bios a lot. But my last ski had dbl boot also, so?? The only thing that took a little getting used to was all of the laces, (two per boot).

'04 Phantom Truth 68" with double Phantom bindings.
This is my first ski. At the beginning of the Summer I wasn't sure it was right for me. With the guidance of a few TMCer's I stuck with it and love it. :cool:

'04 HO Burner w/ Dbl Venom Boots - It may be a slightly wider ski but is very responsive and due to its width I can ride it much longer than my old Obrien Seige Comp.

Running a 2002 HO Truth 67 with double Animals. Very comfortable bindings with the Superfeet orthotics and rear lace up - love em. Ski took a little getting used to but love it.

There is a thread on here somewhere about double boot vs. frontboot & RTP - check it out. My choice is double boots for control and safety.

HO's Animal, Phantom, and Approach boots have foot-specific orthotic footbeds in them. Comfy!

my venoms have an adjustable arch that you set depending which foot is forward for you. Is that the same thing?

02 HO Truth 68” w/Med RFF Animal Boots, which replaced a Goode 9200 with Powershells. But I am also in the market for a new ski and bindings. I tried http://www.jagersport.com/ Fluid Motion Double Six boots on my Truth for part of the summer, but didn’t like them. I found them to be heavy and lost buoys! I think I am going to try Fogman’s with a new ski for next season. Jamie

My wife has the 04 Venoms and they felt like flat foam footbeds to me (there was no foot specific option when I bought them).

Do you have some pictures of what you're talking about?

I've been sort of looking at an O'Brien Siege, but so far this is quite preliminary. I've only got product descriptions to go on, as I haven't skied one yet.

Not sure.....always looking for a deal! (good time of year to do so) The Bios I'm digging are $80/ $65 front/rear. (U.S. dollars)
