God you're an asshole. This post was entirely unneccesary, you got the point across in the first reply but with this one you were just being a shitbag.
I know this place can be harsh when people do dumb stuff but you missed the mark completely.
How to put it...they're a lightweight binding for lightweight skiers. They're not inherently bad, they're just not terribly tough. I'm trying to think of a good example for it. Let's say, the brakes on your car. They might say they're fine for stopping a 2500lb car, and for 90% of people they will be. But if you take the same 2500lb car and drive it at 140mph around a race track, you'll soon find they're terrible.
Likewise, the Squire... it's probably totally fine with a 230lb dude skiing intermediate groomers on them. But as soon as you start doing jumps, hitting rails, putting awkward loads on them where DIN doesn't come into it (wait until you have your first REALLY heavy tail landing and see how the toe piece holds up) your 180lbs is suddenly putting a whole lot of force on a binding that isn't really made to take it.
At 180lb I'm not sure I'd even consider the Griffon. I'd be looking very hard at those PX15 Jibs that Evo has for like $62 at the moment.
