I have always used salomon and never had a problem. Maybe you should have an ASTM test done on them. They do it at the ski shop, usually around $20 - $30 where I live. It will tell you how much force it takes compared to how much it should take to release your binding.
I should have add a disclaimer regarding the Jester/Duke, as the jury is still out on those. But I can say from first hand experience that the 12.0 Free sucks bad. They prerelease on perfect switch landings like no one's business, then you've got two broken brakes to replace. Personally, I'm through with Marker.
