i have sth 16's on my motherships and ep pros. they're awesome. they have not prereleased one single time but they fall off when they have to (set at 14).
i had some fks 185 bindings on my blends this past season and they ripped out right away. fks are sick (as far as holding on when they need to and releasing when they need to), but make sure your skis have metal in them or are narrow. also, there is a lot to be said about the brake issue, bending and replacing broken brakes, that has already been mentioned in this thread.
the jesters are sick, but they're more expensive than the salomon and i honestly can't think of a single thing that makes them any better than the salomons. i am obsessed with my sth 16's and will be putting them on everything from here on out (except for one pair of dukes next winter).
