Plenty of people there that don't do either.

I'd rather read the informed stories & opinions of those who are objective
Many at POWDER are. Here's an informed story/opinion for you.
I've been skiing Marker bindings the last 10 years for probably a total of 1000+ days. I haven't had a problem with the prerelease issues people claim to experience with Marker bindings until this season. I had a prerelease just as people at POWDER had discribed. A brief shock, while I was in balance, that I should have been able to ski through but the toe thought it was time to let go. I don't think it would have happened on my Salomons.
It's too bad. The Marker speedpoint binding is so easy to adjust I love using it on my demo skis, but now when things get hairy, I'm going to have that prerelease experience nagging at me.
Keep an open mind and spend some time at the other site. You'll be able to sort truth from fiction in no time.
