This plate is a great invention. Being able to use Look Pivots for touring is wonderful. The plate has the highest setting (14 degrees) out of any other touring setup. And it really helps. The hinges are frictionless and being able to switch climbing bar with your pole baskets is a great convenience. Don't be weary of flex because there is none. The MFD is torsionaly strong and I had no problems with it.
I highly recommend the MFD Alltime for touring.
P.S. Marker fans they will make a plate for Marker bindings next year. I've seen a working prototype.
