I had 1080 S900ti bindings for 2 years, 1.5 of which I skied with a broken brake. The one of the stupid metal loops to which the brake piece hooks broke after 1 month. This loop was part of the track that the heel piece slides on so it couldn't be replaced and I had no warranty.
Switched to Rossi axial Carbon pros and have had no problems other than a brake popping loose the first time I lost a ski, which flew down the mountain and hit a guy.
I like the salomon toepiece, it has the best hold of any binding, Marker, Salomon, and Look/rossignol but the look/rossi pivoting heel piece kicks absolute ass! I run my din 2.5 notches lower on the Rossi bindings than Salomon and don't release as often. much safer.
