For straight running in Telemark position it is difficult to control the back ski if you are using spring bindings. I always, where possible, run with my bad leg leading so as to keep my BB ski behind. I also find the Telemark turn very much easier to control if the back foot is attached to the ski by a rigid binding. To sum up, I advise people with normal toes to use the BB binding, and those with stiff toes to use the Schuster binding. Those who, like myself, have got one normal foot and another foot with stiff toes, should use a Schuster binding on the damaged foot and a BB binding on the other foot.
The earliest form of spring binding is the wellknown Lillienfeld, which was invented by Herr Zdarsky. Zdarsky rendered a very great service to ski-ing in Austria though he taught a bad style, he persuaded thousands to take up ski-ing. Much the same may be said of his binding. The binding has now been superseded by far better bindings on the same principle, but though no modern ski-runner would use the Lillienfeld, all those who have stiff toes have reason to be grateful to Zdarsky for his invention the ground.
