They all have quirks!

As far as skiing goes they work well. Yet plastic heal reminds me of the plastic 916 bindings and found I had to ride higher din than I thought I should. They are lower to the ski than others and the heightener lacks true flat or a midway. All in all for ski area and daily tours it works just as well as others but I think more bomb proof than others due to the aluminum framing. At the end of the day every system has its problems and there are not any perfect touring bindings, seen them all fail. Beats hauling around trekkers, which I would still use to ski on some setups since I'm not sponsored.

I think trekker is looking for someone to pimp their stuff.:)
Thanks for the feedback seth. Funny you mention the din. My buddy and I are finding the need to raise the din as well.

We have been waiting for these for a long time from salomon, so a great first release. I have seen people do crazy lines on them so you can keep that in mind.

I have the same din issue on these that I had on my 916's. Not a huge deal, but definitely a familiar quirk.

Seth, how do the full Tilt boots work with the guardians? I have the Konflicts and love them. Deciding between guardians or a pair of trekkers for some sidecountry use. What do you think? Thanks
