I understand the question I'm asking does rely on a bunch of factors, But I'm a bit concerned that i should have ejected from a ski with the DINs set at 8 when i skied over it and it crossed under my other leg smashing me face first into the snow. I'm using WTR soled boots and I'm curious if my boot jammed them up, or if The binding elasticity and angle was safe and subtle enough that my skis stayed on.

Big_MtnSo you're using WTR soled boots in bindings that aren't designed for them? And you're wondering why they don't release?

Cant seem to find a bottom picture but they have a large plastic plate centered on the toe piece for the AFD to slide on
If you are using the boots as they are pictured, then they are alpine norm ISO 5355. AKA, if you took them out of the box and went skiing, they are ISO 5355. These boots are only sold in the alpine configuration- they are not sold with WTR grip pads pre-installed.
In order to be using WTR grip pads, you would have needed to purchase them separately, remove the ISO 5355 ones, and then put the WTR ones on. WTR grip pads also have a rockered toe piece, just like a touring boot. This makes them noticeably/visibly different from standard alpine grip pads.
AFDs will be on both alpine and WTR (this is mainly what distinguishes a WTR grip pad from a standard touring sole).
