Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Had Marker bindings on my last few pairs of skis. I had the spring loaded toe pad crack on me once and move off its tracks and also crashed very hard and broke the heel piece off just below the pivot point. I had absolutely no problem getting a warranty replacement and have otherwise loved these bindings. The amount of weight saved by getting plastic bindings as opposed to metal ones is significant and if your not wiping out all the time then you will not have to worry about breaking these. Perhaps a serious park rider might want something a bit beefier. My warranty pair have been perfect! I would also recommend greasing the sliding toe pad every few months or at the start of each season. Maybe thats why i ended up cracking mine. Ive heard of the this piece freezing and not moving for people in some conditions but it has always worked great for me.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

So i just bought these in a 171cm length off backcountry for this season and the thin tip just cracked on me. Could be fluke or it could be a design flaw im not really sure but i will have to send them back. Other than this these skis were great! they were solid underfoot, flexible in the tip and tail which made for great butters and excelent carving through the crud. I had these mounted at -2cm from true center (about 2cm ahead of midsole). I recommend that these be mounted at midsole (-4cm aprox..) or at least at -3cm from true center. I weigh 145lbs and powder was a bit of a challenge at -2cm. These were super light and nimble for fat(ish) skis. Great park ski that can handle powder to. These have been great on jumps, rails, boxes, and the swing weight is perrrrrrrfect. The only thing i would change about these is maybe a sharper turning radius. At a hair less than 20m,it is hard to carve a sharp turn without sliding the tails out. Probably not a good ski for an old timer that rides with his feet touching eachother. Otherwise they are tons of fun and provided they dont crack, i would have given them 4.5 stars! DO NOT CENTER MOUNT THESE. if you think you can handle pow at center, YOUR WRONG! I also recomend that anyone over 150lbs gets the 178cm. jusssst my opinion. Happy Skiing :D Two planks are better than one!!
