With cable bindings like Black Diamond and G3, it's pretty much guaranteed that you will break something at some point. Seeing as you don't do much with your skis when you aren't skiing, it's almost certain that you will have an equipment malfunction while in use. Bindings are necessary, as are spare parts.This backcountry kit is like bringing a spare tire on a road trip: It's just a good precaution.I have also used this kit to upgrade a pair of used 03 binders I picked up, which had failed heel assemblies. I even got climbing wires for them! The wider cable routing on the 03 toe box gave less lateral movement, too.Still, I'd rather ski Hammerheads.
A quick fix replacement kit is a must have for any freeheeler. After seeing so many of my friends break G3 bindings week after week I decided to get a little insurance package against missing ski days or having my day shortened. The only thing that sucks is that the cable replacements are designed for the new O2 Bindings and are of little use for the older binding style. A must have.
great backup kit for backcountry. good collection of components.
Just pay the money and get the repair kit.
