The pin on this binding sheared today when I was skiing on the groomer off Mt Hood. I had skinned up about 2500 feet to test out my new boots and do an overall shakedown for a big ski I have coming up in a couple of weeks. On the way down, I fell, not a huge fall, while turning left and so landed on my left hip. My ski released. Then, I looked at it and the pin had sheared! My shop in Seattle where I have all my mounting, bootfitting done, etc, had advised me against this binding which they said they were no longer carrying because it tends to break. I had already purchased it when they were warning me, and we agreed that so far the cases they knew of were "big guys" skiing agressively. Well, I am not big, I am 125 pounds, and I was on a groomer. And the pin sheared. So, I will be returning this to Backcountry.com and I am glad that I bought it from them, and that it broke before my big ski. I'll be using some skis with Dynafit TLT speed on my big ski and getting another set to put on these boards once I strip off the RT.
