Second run on the new (suposedly bomber) Marker Duke, the middle screw, which is right under the boot, pulled out and the plastic snapped in half. I did a little 180 to pow, felt a pop, looked down and i was in freeheel touring mode.
I feel that this could happen to others, especially if hucking. If a ski flexes reverse camber, the binding will naturally pull away from the ski. There is a plate on the Duke that connects the toe and heel for touring, there is ONE screw in the middle that holds the lever down to switch from locked to free. One fucking screw that keeps the whole thing locked. If this screw pulls out, there is nothing that keeps it from moving, and snapping in half in my case. So basically, fuck you Marker, your bindings still suck.
