now that I think about it, I must have been crazy modeling what I was. It's about as far away from a binding as anything. After a long day of skiing (and patting myself on the back for successfully landing a 360 iron cross and a grind on the monster 7 foot rainbow rail
), I now know what the binding should look like
I've stripped down some images for refs
This would be a freestyle binding (it's very close to the one on my freestyle skiis, and that's the reference that I'm using for my modeling.
This would be a kind of race bindind. I have something similar on my GS Race skiis
I'm going for the first one, though gonna add some elements of the second one to it
