Just wrapped up my 8th day in a row of skiing, all at resort with my new coombacks mounted w/these dynafits. I have some concerns about the binding but it may be a function of operator error and/or something w/mounting. the toe piece on my right ski has pre-released several times this week, once at very high speed. the brake mechanism also popped off in that same crash. My only explanation for the toe pre-releasing is possibly some snow/ice build up underneath. I know big mountain guides, heli guys, vert b/c skiers use this binding so I know i'm not pushing it beyond its limits. Sandy, any ideas?

Just bought this binding and used it today for the first time at the resort. I wanted to do some easy tele-turns on a gentle slope so I was in 'walk/hike' mode on the binding. 2nd or 3rd turn the ski popped off and went down the hill. luckily someone saw it and I retrieved it. Question- i stepped in, it clicked, and i pulled the lever up on the toe piece, heard it click. Is there something else I should be doing or ??? didn't think the ski should come off so easy.

B/C newbie here... Wanting to break into some AT type stuff whenever possible. I live in CA, so Tahoe and Sierras is going to be my area at least to start. I already have a pair of Zzeus TF-X boots. i'm 5'10, about 188 lbs, ski technically well(former ski instructor), like to ski hard and steep, not sure if I have many cliff hucks left in me at 47.. I'm looking for some advice on a binding? I'll be skiing at resorts and taking some trips in spring time to hike/descend.. any advice would be welcome.
