Much has been written about the longevity of skis and boots. But what of the lowly binding, that extraordinary device whose "sole" purpose is to be ready at a moments notice to save our asses from bad things (or the evil binding which causes bad things to happen). Metal or plastic fatigue or deterioration over time, or just mechanical failure with use in very inhospitable environments. Or some other factor I have not thought of.
Let's hear it for the poor twin to its Siamese ski sibling which gets all the attention. I would even propose a "Ski With Your Binding Day" if the concept did not already exist.
So have you ever replaced a binding out of concern that it had outlived its intended lifespan?
