yea i understand the connections between the brands, and how essentially a bent metal bindings is a gnu/lib binding, but i just find it odd that they would make lib tech ski bindings. y not just market them with rossi bindings?

Why would they make it off the PX platform, those bindings are garbage. I snapped 7 pairs of brakes my last two months. Even with 145lbs and a din of 10, they almost popped as easy as marker, well not that bad, but still shitty.
Something HAD to have been wrong with the mount, forward pressure, DIN, SOMETHING. Many pro's are on the px12/px14, and I dont see them pre-releasing. Sounds like an isolated incodent. Ive ridden them, as many others on NS. Ive only heard of a handful of issues.
Imagine that Lib Tech used the fks binding? That would have been as cool as a unicorn!

No, it wasn't, forward pressure was fine. The brakes are poorly made with the 1 screw, quick change, demo design. The thick plastic part of the brakes snap perfectly in half if you over shoot any actual jump, so east coast people, don't worry. I doubt any pros over 120lbs are on px12 or 14s. I have had the problem on multiple skis with multiple PX12s. They are garbage compared to pivots, which brakes also sucked. PXs are fine for anything but jumps.
They are in the sense that they are using the the FKS' replacement. The LibTechs had the full race toe like on the current 155's/185's, but the shat ass PX style heel.
On a side note I believe the new look/rossi race stock (and libtech) has upwards release in the toe... nice! Now if they'd just bring back the turntable heel. We'd have the ultimate freestyle binding.. bar I say a burly reactor.
