I will bump errr mogul with some actual information. I have been using Vist systems for the past season on various capacities, I had some Blizzard Mag SL's with Speedlock Pros set up with some Marker 14's, two sets of these. Yhis is actually a very rare combination, only about 2 dozen sets of these were produced. I also had some Hart Phoenix's set up with Speelock plates and Vist 614 bindings. I will say there is no better shard snow set up than using a Vist plate along with a Vist binding it is a very solid interface that is very flexible.

Gary was talking about binding positioning on skis, Vist is a great option for that type of concern. Ron is talking about some Hart Pulse's, them with some Speedlock Pro Ultra Lites and Free 614's will be one sick set up.

The shop I work at  (in western, MA)Part time picked up Hart skis for this season and we've set up a few Pulses and a Phoenix with the Vist speed lock plate and bindings.  I've never skied them-but, they're pretty cool operating-incredibly easy to move around and swap out other bindings.  I've heard there is an AT option that pops into this plate as well, which could make a pretty versatile set up.

I thinking about setting up my new, son to arrive Nomad SFT 181's with a vist system-but I need to see if they'll pro-form an active Patroller (which I am) or not.  Otherwise, it's Marker look-Rossi for me...

which reminds me I need to make another thread about bindings and Nomads...

Hey Namax,

I work PT at a newer ski shop (actually it's an older bike shop that starting selling skis  a year ago)

called Bicycles-skis-unlimited in greenfield.  and FWIW, sinvce you're a western, ma native I patrol (pro during the week and volunteer on the weekend) at Berkshire East (a great little mountain).

I'm a transplant to western, MA (about 10 years ago)-but I like it a lot.

Oh - many memories from long ago at Berkshire East - I raced there in high school.  I'm originally from further west in the berkshires, but my wife grew up 10 minutes away from Berkshire East in Buckland.
