Seth G Meehanwrote a review of Marker Jester 16 Ski Binding on November 12, 2009
Like I said in my review of my Atomic Snoop Daddies, before last season I was an OK holiday skier without much knowledge of skiing equipment. But since last November when I moved out to Utah, I have pushed myself to progress and learn as much as possible about snowsports. I think I can speak confidently for those of us who arent claiming to huck 20ft+ cliffs when no one else is around
When I got my Snoops I mounted a pair of Marker Jesters on them and really let rip for the season.
Skiing in Park City I was trying everything, groomers, park, trees, switch, learning to butter, but also bailing, hitting knuckles, hitting said tress, you name it.
When I first got my skis I actually broke a pair of Rossi bindings knuckling the first jump in Jonesys Park in PCMR but I did exactly the same again with my Jesters and they soaked it up.
I found them to be a light binding in comparison and couldnt believe the control I had. Quick turns, accidental bails, I felt secure in that my Jesters somehow knew I could either recover and stay on, or think; Sorry dude, we are outta here.
Even though the binding can go all the way up to 16, I never have mine higher than 10, and this is because I like hitting the jumps in the park. I am 62 and around 80kgs/180lbs and these babies are perfect, even if you think your skiing is not.
