    So I recently purchased a pair of K2 pon2oon skis for a great deal. I know they are an old pair of skis and there are better options but iv'e wanted to get my hands on a pair of these for a long time. But now that i have them, i'm unsure what kind of bindings I should get for them. Does anyone have any suggestions? I am doing a decent amount of hiking in the back-country but also want something that I can use for any powder day at my local resort.

    Do you want a binding with a hike capability? If so, do you have a boot with tech fittings? If not, are you thinking possibly a frame binding like a Duke or Guardian?

    @Philpug I do not have bindings with tech fittings so I am thinking about more of a frame binding. I am trying to get somthing with brakes big enough to fit the pon2oon without having to buy new brakes. So 132mm waist.

    On a ski as wide as the Pontoon, the Guardian or Duke (Baron if you are sub 200lb) would be the call. These are pretty beefy bindings that will hold up to mixed condtions and jarring on a wide ski like the Pontoon. You tour with this set up and you will surely be earning your turns.
