Boy, I can't wait for the day when you have to buy a specific brand boot to match the brand of binding/ski you want.

As a side note to Atomic bindings, a number of World Cup skiers who use Nordica and Stockli ski have selected Atomic as their bindings. If their careers are dependant on performance, retention and release, they would choose what is best, and they have.

Seems to me that ski flex would also affect Looks since they have a fixed toe and heel, the forward pressure on the toe and heel would change when the ski flexes. I guess you're saying that there's enough elastic travel to compensate for the slight change in tension, still seems like it would affect the release setting somewhat if flexed enough.

So, you're saying that a) you need to get the snow off your boots before getting in the bindings, b) ski without bad technique, and c) instead of being a gross weight of 160# with me, boots, skis, and bindings - I have to deal with 161.5#.
Thought they were heavy on the rack, but not noticeable when skiing.
