RTPs

I am looking to tryout a RTP setup on my V-Type. I was thinking Wiley's RTP.
Any suggestions?

    Wise choice. The Wiley RTP gives some of the best lateral support out there.

    I can't make a pass on a toe kicker. I can't get up on a double boot. I made a hardshell that I could kick in with the liner on my off foot. I love it, I can slalom again.

    It's not an off the shelf product.

    I like the HO RTP. I prefer ones that don't adjust as I am a dragged and they are easier to kick into. The molded footbed on the HO helps hold your foot in place. I haven't used the Wiley one but I wasn't crazy about the Radar RTP my foot tended to slide around.

    I had the same problem as @Chef23 with my foot sliding around so I went with a HRT on my new ski and couldn't be happier.

    +1 on HRT. Like it much better than standard RTP

    I prefer the Radar RTP's as they have a formed footbed rather than just being a flat hunk of rubber that your heel slides around on.

    It's complete luck if you can find a RTP without customizing

    I have an HO RTP on my V Type. Tight at first, but great now that I have a few sets on it.

    I use the HO adjustable rtp. I really like it. I don't know how many times I've crashed and still can't believe both feet stay in! Mind you I have had a few complete dismounts thrown in there...

    I have a Wiley rtp on my VType. It's bare bones , durable and simple as you can get. You won't have to worry about it

    I had a rather too spectacular dismount losing balance crossing the second wake pushing too hard for the 4th after being late on the 3rd and getting out of shape. My right foot came out of the RTP and I completed the the crash by having my left foot ripped sideways and forwards out of the front Wiley ... ending up with an broken ankle.

    That was 3 weeks ago, still on crutches still with a swollen foot and knowing that's this season gone.

    I really want to ski again, but can't see me getting onto that setup again. It will always be in my mind.

    Considering all other binding setups now (except RTP + wiley)

    Any recommendations as to what you would consider the safest setup that will release before an ankle gets busted? pros and cons for Radar/Reflex - double release etc ?
    Any advice appreciated.

    The front binding may have been too tight for me, but having gone through the last three weeks of pain, I can't imagine ever skiing in a Wiley with RTP again.

    Thanks

    @two2one that's why I like the adjustable. I crank it pretty tight and then leave my front)(Radar Profile) semi loose on top and snug on bottom. No problem ejecting when needed.

    +1 on the fixed HO rtp. Loyal user for 15 years. Well made. Good footbed. Doesn't stretch out.

    My HO toe plate ROCKS
    I ski for fun, just the wife!

    I like my D3 standard toe loop, over 10 years old still good as new. They don't make Standard any more but I have a spare so I guess I'm covered!
