    Christ, nice binding.
    I have an older pair of Plum guides but need (need LOL) some narrower sticks.
    Realistically need new boots first as they will help drive the existing skis a bit better.
    Wayback, Mythics, Backlands in the mix. I like to look of the Zag Ubac but $$$$. Can't do theBlack Crows as matching skis with the +1 is just one step too far LOL

    CarveMan, I know you have spoken very highly of your BC Came Freeride's before. Specs are very similar to the K2 wayback 96.
    Do you have a preference? and why? Thanks.

    Haven’t skied the Wayback so it’s hard to make a direct comparison. However from fondling, hand flexing and reading reviews etc I would ski it with a ~300g binding with no hesitation.

    Thanks CarveMan. I did of course mean Camox. The autocorrect on this site is brutal.
