Me ??
Change the bindings ?
Well ... if they do not break when I adjust them with my boots , it is a go !
I have seen quite a few broken ... I align the broken parts along the bay window inside my house ... My take on that is that the material was not chosen correctly but the breaks are compounded by the way the skis were stored .
So if I am lucky the bindings will hold for a few more years . By that time I will be too old to ski ( never ! ) or I will be dead ( I do not intend to ) or I will find a way to go to Florida in the winter and surf at my heart's desire ...

'' Safety Last ! '' as the title of the famous movie .
This is taken last weekend : I was skiing the 1973 Attack and the bindings were the original ones ...

to find a pair that is brand new .
Meaning totally new except for the passing of time in storage .

Dynastar TXP Kevlar 1031 , 180 cm , with Salomon 557 .

The colors , by themselves , are so vivid that the ski begs to be tried on the slopes .
Sadly they are too short for me but I will find someone , even if the Salomon have a bad reputation .
It is worth it ...

Back to the 1980 !
I went to the closest mall Saturday and , guess what ?
The 1980 fashion is coming back in style : all the fluo colors are there .
If only these skis were 205 !!

Even though it's a 180 I bet you can still have fun on them. Why not give them a try.

I came across these dynastars still wrapped and noticed the japanese instructions. Did they all come like that or were these maybe imports?
