    Is it possible to determine the age of Diamir Fritschi bindings from the numbers on the bottom?

    Usually by the number and spacing of the surface cracks in the plastic.

    Yeah you’re supposed to be able to, I can’t remember how right now.

    Please post a pic of the numbers you’re talking about & a pic of the binding in general.


    Thanks

    I'd suggest the bindings were made in 1980.

    They are new. I have the grey and yellow model before those and I'm going to turn them into tourers for blowette.

    Does she weigh more or less than the binding?

    That's the Freeride Plus and I believe it was released in around 2006/07. I had them on a pair of Elans and from memory they were the new model then with the wider mount pattern.
