Back to this again huh? Well, another year, another series of testing.
Basically, this binding, in terms of park performance has come leaps and bounds in the past year. Once again, a couple of my buddies and I took out the knee bindings for some more park testing. This time, it was on slushy snow, the kind where ripping a ski off landing switch is no strange occurance, regardless of binding.
The binding still has an interesting feel, that takes some getting used to; that being said, we ran in to limited instances of skis pre-releasing. The newly resdesigned brake is more condusive to skiing park, because it allows the binding's elastic nature to exhibit a sense of give without the brakes touching the snow(and ripping the ski off).
bottom line, this binding is doing its job. It will save your knees. If you want to ride it at a din of 10 (or higher), thats fine. but maybe after an ACL tear you are dialing it back a bit and not pushing yourself to the limits. Say you are still hitting jumps, learning tricks, just not with the fervor you previously did due to injury. This binding will work for that.
while it may not be ready for the impacts associated with professional level skiing, for 90% of the park skiers on this site, this binding would be effective and satisfactory. The fact remains that we all crank our din; just like any other binding out there, a din of 8 probably won't cut it for park. But put this guy in the 10+ range, and i don't see why it wouldn't work for the average park skier.
and then, your biggest issue is cost.
