For the 2011 Season Salomon has reintroduced the Salomon STH 14 Binding with a Driver toe piece. You can still get the STH 14 with the Z toe if you want to save some weight but if you really enjoy the older style driver toe then you should get the STH 14 Driver ski bindings. There are mixed reviews on thsi and personally I enjoy the new Z toe and the automatic adjustment wings, but there are the die hards that just enjoy the driver toe and if that is what they want they can get it for the 2011 ski season.
Also, like with all bindings some people just have issues with a certain style of binding for their skiing or ability, for me it was always the Marker Bindings up until the new Griffon and Jesters came out. I had many friends that had issues with the original Salomon 912’s however I did not. Same goes for the Z Binding, however I have found a much better rate of success with the new Z concept binding then I did with the driver toe unless I was using the 916.
