I have a pair of Fisher Wc SC with a rental binding on them ( Saloman S912Ti). I got both items new thru a friend of mine that ownes a ski shop. They are not much heavier (at least I don't seem to have to drag them across the parking lot or hire a porter to lug them around for me.) As far as worried about holding up, I feel that Solomon and like would not open them selves up for law suites by putting renters on an inferior product, in fact they would expect more abuse and continual adjustment.
As far as thieft goes, I bought a ski lock after reading the other thread.
Anyway the answear is , if I wipe out bad they tend to come off my feet but when I am skiing hard they stay on my feet.
