Leaning towards the fritschi's I realized I also have no idea as to which size I should go with. My boots are 26.5 (sole length 300) and the short bindings say they go from 245mm - 300mm. I called a few ski shops in the area and none were very helpful. Diamir says to go with the smallest binding possible (Can anyone explain why that is?). One person said I should go with the medium bindings (280mm - 335mm) in case my feet get bigger/I want to let someone else use my skis. I don't see either of those scenario's playing out but if there is a performance related explanation I'd really like to know.
You probably shouldn't get the small binding if your boots are at the absolute maximum of its capacity. There is some variance in true boot sole length vs marking by a few mm. Or you might decide to get another pair of boots and they have larger sole length for the same size. I would guess that one reason to get the smallest binding you can is because the shorter rail should flex less (if you aren't really big and aggressive this probably isn't a huge issue).
