These bindings are great. Especially with the new six hole mounting plate. You don't have to worry about ripping out of the ski and breaking the binding. BD also got rid of the small amount of play that the older models had before the cartridges engaged. Definitely a solid binding and the tour mode is awesome!
I love these bindings because they have the ability to release tention to skin up a slope easier.
Con. Bindings losen up while skiing, so I have to tighten them before I ski and sometimes at lunch.
Besides that they are awesome.
Best binding on the market!!! Ridiculously stiff springs make them comparable to a downhill setup!!!
