it was fairly awkward, i got one ski caught under a log, and i flipped. but the binding never released and the log came with me as i flipped. DIN set at 8, it should've released. Im 6'3 185, and 8 din is low for my size and ability, i normally ski at 10-11 with no problems. I only kept them at 8 because my dad used them and they didnt release for him, so i suspected problems early on. i should have never skied them after that, but luckily it was only my meniscus.
I ended up returning it to backcountry, and never got it release tested, but im almost positive that it was a bad set of them. The forward pressure was perfect as done by a ski tech, and din was low, and they still didnt release for either my father (220 lbs) or me. Sometimes you just get a malfunctioning set, and unfortunately that means surgery, tho again luckily only my meniscus.
