That the rental binding will add several more pounds to the ski. Do you understand what 'unsprung' weight is to a car? The more weight that is not supported by springs, the worse the car will handle. The same can be said for a skier. Now you do have the mass to muscle the extra weight around, but do you want to? And do you want to be lugging it in the back country?

great observations...

I did not think of that, it would be heavier and transfer less power. I just thought it might be a good way to move around the bindings on the ski to see what would be too much, not enough and just right before I commit to screwing down the binder. I don't even know if it would be realistic way to get the feel.
