edit title - meant PX12's
I've used Look/Dynastar bindings on all our skis for many years without issue. My middle son, however, seems to be breaking them constantly. He's a strong, athletic kid (6'3", 180 lbs.) who likes to do relatively tame freestyle tricks, but is not a park rat. He skis on a DIN setting of 8.5 without releasing unexpectedly, so it seems this binding should be appropriate for him.
He first broke a toe-wing off which was warrantied by Dynastar.
Next he bent the heel track which I managed to straighten in a vice.
That incident compromised the rear heal mounting holes which failed last week with the heel piece ripping off the ski (not the binding's fault)
Today, he was skiing on a pair of my skis and broke the brake completely off. I was right next to him, and all he did was a little spin on the snow at slow speed. Unbelievable!
I've always had great luck with these bindings, but am beginning to wonder if I need to try something different for him. Thoughts?
