Problems with Marker Griffons
Alright everyone, I've been having some issues with this babies. This will be my 3rd season on them, and so far I have ripped out the heel piece twice on each side (at DIN of 9.5), got them retapped second time, and I've broken the brakes and had to replace them twice since retapping. Wtf?
Get your bindings mounted at a better shop and stop falling.

They were retapped at a new shop, and I haven't had a problem with that since, but what about the brakes?
Brakes can often just get destroyed from lots of hard-impact landings. I've had bindings that worked great, but elements of the toe/heel just start to crack and fall off. Which is to say, not that great.
Make SURE all elements of tension are correct: toe/hell hieght, torsion, blahblahblah, could be the source of your problem. Or, it might be time to invest in a burlier binding.
Don't forget to check your oil.
I don't think that either issue is related to the binding itself. Ripouts can be due to bad mounting or a defect with the ski core. Every company uses their own core design, usually of two types of wood - one harder than the other. If the mounts are going into the softer wood, that might add to your problem. Also, the break is a separate component to the binding.
How used are your skis? If you've really driven them hard, that will also be a factor.
GET FKS and never have another problem. Again.
i hate this response so much. The griffons arent the problem here. it was probably a shitty mount and poorly mounted FKS will rip out too.
