BD01's on fat flat ski?

Would I be insane to put BD 01's on my new sidestashes? Anyone skiing fatter skis with the BD01?

why not? as long as you aren't skiing T-races or BD customs or any other big boot and you weight 180+ or are a hardcharger...

I ski hard and am afraid of BD's binders because of pull out issues. If you don't fall into one of the catagories above I think you will be just fine with that mount.

No comment on my weight - but I am no waif. I guess most folks would say I ski hard "for a girl". Not launching jumps anymore, but still catch a little air. Prefer steeps, bumps, or trees and would like to be able to go back country in them as well. Love the BD 01's on what I am skiing now.

Are you opposed to Dukes? I am no waif either and have my fat ski's set up with Dukes - I have not had any issues at all with them after 2 seasons of pretty hard use - I don't jump either but I get after it in the tree's and pow stashes.

From what it sounds like I think you'll be fine. I think the big risk is for people hucking cliffs and using the Rid stiff cartridges.

BTW what cartridge were you thinking about using?

I think you'll be fine. Just make sure the Mounter knows what they are doing.

Just for future reference, I recommend you take a look over at the telemarktips.com forum. There are a bunch of really knowledgable people over there.

It's all in the mount...

Your good just make sure you trust your mounter. Make sure they use a good epoxy. I am 200 lbs huck a little and use the Midd stiffs on a pair of 105 underfoot skis... Mary Jane last weekend........
