I got these for really cheap off backcountry.com for my pow skis and so far they have done pretty well. They feel very solid and are pretty light. I have had some issues with the right binding prereleasing on the landings of tiny side hits but I did mount and adjust the bindings myself so that is probably part of the problem. These feel much more durable then my squires but at this point I almost prefer my squires just because I have never had any problems with them and they are lighter. All in all these are a solid binding for a reasonable price.
I rode a pair of these for about two seasons, and they performed well for the most part. They're durable, not too heavy, and come at a really decent price. After about a season, it started to feel like my boot was rattling around in the binding. The toe piece is pinned to the toe mounting plate, and this connection loosened over time, which is what led to the rattling sensation. The bindings never prereleased, but it was unnerving. Not that it's necessarily the bindings fault, but I did have a fall in which the binding did not release, and it seemed that it should have. One instance isn't a complete indication of the quality and reliability of the bindings, just my experience. Overall, these are probably a good binding for the price.
first had these set up on a pair of alpha 1s. They are a pretty sturdy binding that i have had no real issue with in terms of releasing before i was meant to or not releasing at all. I'm 6'2 190lbs and ride these on a 10 hitting jumps of 40+ft and they have stood up great so far. I have clocked upwards of 70 days on the griffons riding everything from park to piste to a little pow and they are still going strong with the real faults (other than 1 snapped break due a bad switch landing).
one problem i have noticed with these is that often the heel piece does not go fully down when release, there seems to be a mid point where it sits that stops you clicking in properly, pretty easily solved by stamping it down but can be annoying.
These bindings are amazing if you're in the market for a light weight yet durable binding. The only reason why I didn't rate them a little higher durability is because they are made out of plastic mostly. Which could be a turn off for many skiers who want a durable binding.
Even with them being plastic I've landing flat and on ice and they've held up. They've even saved my knees and have never released at the wrong time but that is also because i found a perfect place to set my din at.
I'd say go for them they are definitely worth every penny spent and i would buy another pair if given the chance.
