personally, look and Rossi are the top in my opinion. Atomics hold really well and have the adjustable/sliding mount to adjust the flex (ala E.S.S. V.A.R.) and have the option to shut off the top toe release if you so choose. Marker has always made a good binding, but I am not a fan of the top toe release and they currently do not have a way to shut it off (that I know of), but you can adjust the amount of pressure it takes to release - supposed to be a setting to adjust it from 25%-50% reduction of force (top toe release only).
