Check Wiley's - good bindings w/o name brand markup.

Or check Overtons Dent and Ding in the Outlet.

Yep, Wiley's is a good place to get equipment. I've taken my ski in a few times and they overhauled my bindings and replaced the pieces that were worn out. If your in Seattle its worth going to check out all of the gear..new and used. They even had my old Cyprus Gardens El Diablo from the late 60's hanging on the wall.

You'll probably want to check what is compatible with the Goode binding layout before ordering. I think Goode has a unique binding screw pattern.

thanks for the info guys, El Diablo wow thats a blast from the past... along with the Lil' Monster "concave" bottom! Yep those were the rides in my prime of growing up on a slalom. and then at about 18 or 19 someone turned me onto the O'Brien world team comp, oh brother never knew you could go so looooowwwww.... went and bought me one for like $135.00
about 34 yrs ago. road that ski forever and then loan it out and never saw it again :( was over at my buddies the other day (use to terrorize lake together) he had a diablo with the grooved bottom out in his storage shed. fun watching my boy grow up on the same lake I played on as a kid. sorry for all the rambling, you can tell when your getting old, all you talk about is what you use to do :wink:

I remember the first World Team Comp I rode - it whistled when you leaned hard and accelerated. That was cool for kids comming off a cheap combo ski slalom. Then there was the Western Wood and the Saucier (wish we still had that one).... I also had a chance to ski a Norhtland Shark - with the stepped rails on the bottom. I could never get that ski to turn for me.... Turns out a neighbor at the lake has one - but he won't let it go .... I was hoping to put it up on the cabin wall.

I don;t have a lot of skis to look back on cause I could never afford to change them that often. My wife is currently skiing on a Jobe Professional I bought back in about 1978. My daughter is skiing on my old Connelly Shortline II that I picked up in about 1986. I handed that down to her when I realized that 65" ski is just to short as age/wt goes up. So got the Connelly Concept about 6-7 years ago. Very happy with that choice.
