    Consensus on the P14WTR toe? I've been on a set this season (my first non metal binding in 15+ years..) and the slop is killing me. The AFD has too many moving parts to be practical as an alpine binding IMO.
    These 32 year old Zs solved the problem for me.

    huge advancements, true, do they still break more than god's intended binding material? yes.

    Yeah, those dual AFDs are sloppy. The rest of the current design P14 is pretty solid otherwise, and newer ones don't have the sliding AFD.

    You gotta ski smooth. Like having sex. Or do you just pound away? Ski smooth and your skis won't fall off unless you hit a rock. Don't have to worry about rocks having sex, usually.

    So, just go hard and blow out after a dozen turns?

    A lot of girls like it rough like you're skiing through some cut up chop, just saying.
