    Last spring I got into a discusion on the forum as to which binding system works the best.
    As fall is in the air I thought it was time to start up a new project and see what i can cook up for this coming season and do some head to head comparson on binding styles.

    Picked up a carbon fissle and some 7000 series alunimum




    First day on the job and will post more pics .

    Thanks Hans.

    First off I have to give props to John for bringing his Phantom design to market.Nice work.

    Its going to be hard to out perform the other bindings with overlaped pucks as the pic of me riding post resort season ice tells but the new puck/binding is lighter so will see how that factors in.

    I think i have my new skier ball buster coming in at 3940g (8 pounds 11 ounces).Still have to get my Ranger toe bindings to mount up but happy with the weight and carpet stiffness.
    Bindings weigh in at 440g

    Can you take a pic of your boot mounted to that from the side please? What is the height of the boot off the deck? What is keeping your plate from spinning? Stance angles adjustable? Looking sharp buddy! :thumpsup:

    Knocked this off pretty fast as the wife says i have to start the home renos up again lol, so i kept it simple wiith no adjustablity and ran the angles 28r 35f.
    Love the 2nd gen phantom concept to lock the bindings in place. but went with the something close the the 1st gen pin to keep it from rotating for now.
    What I do need is canting/ toe and heel lift for myself but the lowest part of the boots on both feet is 3/8 inch.

    Very cool, this aligns somewhat with Ieism and Rughty’s ideas? How do you get them to hold the stance? Can you share a video of how easy the mounting is?
    Will be nice to see the Dynafit’s with Ranger brackets.
    Great work!
