The brakes on my FKS 180's came off a 20-some year old pair of skis from the city dump and we mounted them with a jig from the 80's... love it. Good designs don't tend to change much.
Personally I just can't go past the FKS metal toe. I mean come on, the top half is more or less a single hunk of metal. No toe wings, no BS, just the most rock-solid, direct connection to my skis I've ever had. Makes Jesters feel like rubber.
