I took an awkward forward twisting fall last year and first time ever failed to release when I should have. Nothing broken but very sore for about a month. Bindings -- Mojo 15's. Purely coincidental for sure, but lost my confidence.
I used Griffens before the Mojos and use them now. Have never had a problem w/ release or retention on Griffins and nice & light but they are a bit stiffer in step-in and also stiffer to cock the heel back for removal. I would not patrol on them.
When I patrolled I always used Salomons w/ the driver toe and wouldn't even consider using anything else. Great elasticity in toe -- I set the toes one DIN# below recommended and could twist out of them with my own leg strength and quickly and get to business when needed, and never had a pre-release. Fast, easy, and total protection against pre-release when running sleds.
