reactor bindings...post updated
the last time i posted about having doubts in teh line bindings..i was BASHED for nearly 30 posts on how stupid i was for doubting them.......well tonight 2 of my friends were using they're brand new reactors, the binds i had doubts in..and each one messed up......for each of my friends a binding loosened from having the screws loosen...and i dont want you to tell me they werent tight enough cuz i witnessed the screws be TORQUED into the ski...and second, on teh of the bindings brakes bent down after a fakie fall.....now that ski is usless cuz it has a brake leg dragging.......i ALSO saw my friend fall on a landing becuase the binds jsut decided to let go becuase i guess it must have been 'dangerous'.....he was gonna land that
so my point is, yes these bindings are revolutionary...yes they are a progression to the sport...but NO they are not flawless and NO they are not teh answer to all problems
i knew they were flawed. boo ya i was right

Shit happens. Line wouldn't put out a binding if it was a piece of shit..think about it.
that is quite jibtastic, sir.

i agree with you man....but im making teh point that they are not God-like peices of structural engineering
good concept that should be sold to rossi or look...they can make it work somehow
was he joking? no one can be sure.
did you set them up on your own, hahaha.
seriously, I went for a rail sesh and didn't adjust the forward pressure to anything close to as tight as it should have been and never came out. except when I was nose pressing because i didn't change the rear din which was at like 6 or something.

if you cant set them up on your own.....then they are no longer quick mount?? you now need them to be 'quick mounted' by a ski shop? hmmmmmm sounds like quick mount is just as good as any other mounting system now...i think your supposed to screw them in on your own
my roommate had the exact same problem as this dude. fucked up our first 2 days of skiing. the heal kept sliding all the way back even after it was taken back to the ski shop. but if you like laughing at dudes airing over s rails with one ski on, like i do, it might be a good choice.

for some reason you have to have a shop set them on the ski for the first time only. i don't know why i don't own a pair.

thank you mommy, may i have another? - *andy*
they want a shop to do it the first time so all the stuff is set right like din, ect. and so they cant be sued for ppl doing it wrong and getting hurt
Responding to jibEmpyre saying 'Line wouldn't put out a binding if it was a piece of shit..think about it.'...
I think it's very possible that they'd put out a P.O.S. Remember all the early Line skis that couldn't stay together for more than one season? They had super de-lam problems for years, yet they still continued to produce those skis. It wouldn't surprise me one bit if their bindings are in need of some fine-tuning too. I owned a pair of '03 Line Skogens and one of the first pairs of '03 Reactor bindings. I got rid of the skis and bindings after only 1 season. In my experience, Line products seem to have durability issues.
You need to have a ski shop set them up, they are not magically set up for everyone right out of the box.
Quickmount means that you can switch them between skis.
