Perfect condition is one thing, but there are a bunch of factors....
- forward pressure needs to be set correctly for your boots. this is probably the #1 contributing factor to pre-/unexpected release
- obviously the release settings must be suitable for you, based on height, weight, boot sole length and skiing style. If you ski very aggressively you'll need to crank them harder. Possibly harder than the shop is willing to go.
- toe wing adjustment to your boots. the driver toe is about the only toe out there with wing adjustment and the screws may work loose over time. a drop of superglue or threadlock will help
- toe height adjustment to your boots. again, the driver toe does not have automatic adjustment (neither do the Jesters you're thinking about) and needs to be set properly
Its not much help if the shop tell you they're in perfect condition if they don't adjust *all* the variables correctly.
