a lot of people say bindings with a din of under 14 aren't durable or whatever...its really not a big deal considering you'll most likely be skiing under 10, especially for freestyle skis. Look into some look px12s, cheap, reliable.
Yeah I was just talking about Markers. Marker Junior bindings are garbage.
I prefer not to ski with poles because; 1) They are a pain in the *** to carry around when trying to take photos and video, and 2) You can't throw snowballs at knuckle draggers when you have poles! The only time I really use poles is if I go OB and I have to hike a bit.
