I'm a very experience skier, all mountain and backcountry, but a complete tele beginner. Is this binding...stable enough for a beginner?
When I started, I got the Voile CRB binding.http://www.backcountry.com/store/VOL0092/Voile-Hardwire-CRB-Telemark-Binding.htmlI know it's more expensive, but it's definitely worth it.It is releasable and they'll save your knees when you fall... and trust me, you will.Plus, it will last you a long, long time.
Second that. These 3 Pin cable bindings are not for resort skiing. I second Richie Olivier on the CRB's. Or, Hammerheads. Hammerheads are the best.
