I bought the line Reactor 12 (new model) bindings recently with a new pair of line Mike Nick Pro skis. While I knew in advance they were heavy, it didn't really strike my how heavy until I had to carry them around over a w/e. That is not the real problem, however. First off, I was having pre-release stomping jumps, similar to problems I have had with Marker bindings in the past. This caused me to start tightening the DIN setting (I know this is not clever but pre-release on jumps is a real problem for a park ski). Another annoying problem was the tendency for the boot to get stuck in the open binding when taking the ski off. Finally, I have since read that there is a structural problem in the toe, which can cause them to break at low temperatures and as a result, certain stores refuse to carry them. The final result? I have sprained my ankle due to too high DINs (lucky my boot was a bit loose or I think I would have torqued the knee). LINE- love the skis, hate the bindings.
