Connelly Draft binding

Recommended Posts

skicrazy

I'm looking at the Connelly Draft binding to possibly put on a D3 X5. Does anyone have experience with the Draft? Likes? Dislikes?

Thanks!

Had mine for a year and a half. Forefoot is still VERY tight, but they feel secure and provide a very solid link to the ski....and easy to put on on. I would recommend them, but not sure about the other new hinged Connelly boot for this year.

I have a pair on an F1. I like them alot. Easy to get in an out of and very comfortable and secure. My only complaint is the cheap plastic fastener on the drawstrings. They could have done better on such a key component. I would recommend ordering a few in advance just in case--or for when--they break.

I've heard that a lot...had mine for year and a half and mine have not broken yet.

I had one come apart the third time I used them. I rigged a temp fix and was able to ski, but I am not real happy with the quality of that particular component. That said, I love everything else about the binding and certainly don't regret the purchase.

Thanks!

I wear a 9.5 Nike sneaker. What size should I get? I don't want any slop in the binding after it gets broken in.

Same size feet as me. I'll double check when I get home.
