Pros trust the SAS2 150 Binding, and so can you.

This is a great binding. For years it was one of the best bindings on the market (when the Rossignol FKS and Look Pivot binding had been discontinued). Now it is seriously 2nd best. It has a solid metal construction, wormscrew adjustment, reinforced heel screws, high elasticity, and super wide AFD. You can charge with the bindings.
Now that FKS and Pivot bindings are back, so this binding is not the best on the market anymore, but they are still really good. They are very durable, but do weight a lot.
Mine have recently become very wobbly, not the screws being loose, but the binding on the track itself has a loose connection. It is only noticeable when I am not clipped into them though..strange...

Would someone mind laying out the primary differences in performance and feel between the Axial 2's and the SAS's? I've been loyal to the Axial 2 140's for a while, and I'm curious about the SAS counterpart. I understand the SAS's don't have any lifters so you're closer to ground with less weight for jibbing, and that they're lighter while sacrificing some of the bomber durability of the axial2s.

Would these bindings be ok for me? I'm 5'11" and 145 lbs and will be mounting them to Moment Donner Parties (140 mm underfoot). If not, does anyone have some other recommendations?
Burly, Stong, Safe
These bindings are almost as strong as you can get. I have them mounted on my Dynastar Legend Pros and Big Troubles. I beat the crap out of them and never have to worry about breakage or prerelease. The elasticity in the heelpiece is what makes look/rossi bindings the best. I'm 6 foot, 190 pounds and I ride these at 11. My salomons are set at 13 and Marker Duke's are at 12 just so they don't prerelease when I land big or way forward. The SAS2 150s give me a chance to recover before releasing, but still release when necessary during a big crash. They are heavy from the all metal construction, but plastic bindings break. If you bust these up, I hope your body is still intact. Now, if they only brought back the turntable in something less than an 18 din. . . .

Has anyone had to stretch the brakes? I want these to go with my Liberty Helix, but they have a 105 waist.
Stretching these brakes to accommodate a 105mm waist is easy-breezy for any shop guy. Damn, you could just wrench 'em with your hands; it's so close. You're in business!

Anyone know if these will use the same holes as a marker m1100? Or any binding with a higher din that will use the same holes?
Rossi and Marker use different mounting jigs, so I am pretty sure that they don't. Just take them to a shop, they can redrill and mount for you, no problem.
Definitely different hole patterns. That's a good thing. You don't want to re-use holes. Un uh! You'll pull your binders out on the first day! Go new every time unless you're using heeli coils.

Does this binding work with the K2 Appache Recon mens ski?
Any ski binding will work on any ski as long as the ski is flat on top and not part of a ski/binding system. Systems will have plastic rails on them. Hope this helps!

does this binding have a high level of steel in its construction? as im aware the the look px race 14 does.
Yeah dude. They're tanks, way burlier than the 14s.
