Richard H.wrote a review of G3 Targa Ascent Telemark Ski Binding on January 23, 2012
If you buy these, get the stainless steel ones, not the aluminum ones. Today my right binding plate split as I was kneeling to put on the left ski. As it split, it also pulled out one of the front mounting screws from the plastic binding frame/riser, busting this part, too. I am only 5'5", 132 ills, and 65 y.o. In 55 years skiing only once before have I broken a binding, and guess what: also a G3. That one was a stainless steel G3 Targa (not the ascent) mounted on XC skis. The rivets which attach the cross bar to the main plate had inadequeate heads and pulled free. G3 replaced that binding. My skiing buddy breaks G3 cables. Not reliable.
