These are simply the best = never sold to the public with the brake, only available to pros.

I loved these -- this was the third pair of skis the binding was mounted on -- until one of the pivot points on the back just snapped off during a steep offpiste descent.

Rossi,

 

Always wanted a set of M48 roto's (second from the right first picture), I had the M48R (non-roto version) and loved them once I got used to the biometric toe.

 

BTW the roto heels had a nickname...POP-o-Matics.  I've seen a actual demonstration of this when I was 15/16 on one of the older versions, bouncing up up and down thru bumps for fun could cause heel to POP! and launch you in the air with both skis parked side by side for a boot sole landing followed by a face plant if you didn't run fast enough on landing (usually the case), extremely funny for those watching.  Funny enough the Biometric toe did the something similar when you sat back and load the toe through a mogul and turned.  Teaches you really quick not to sit back (I my case not so quick, to about 10 to 15 days to figure it out to everyone else's amusement).

 

The Biometric toe was decent solution to ACL type loading issues at that time.

Can you tell me the model names of the two 'winged' toes? Second and third from the left.

Have you ever seen the one 2nd from left - the 'explodamat' but with with brakes?

I skied the 4th from the left (model?). Didn't like the toe at all. It didn't seem to want to recentre. Perhaps this is the one most sensitive to forward pressure.

The 5th from the left was the last tow to be paired with the rotamat heal (the sendond edition non exploding one). I've never skied this one. Was this as good as the original?

I see its got a forward pressure mechanism.

Second from the left , I know it as the M4 toe, the Heel unit is the FD turntable heel, that also took the Alberg safety straps.

I think these heel pieces might be the ones choucas is talking about. They are mounted to a pair of Strato 102.

 

 

 

 

They are on ebay right now

I remember notching the toe of the boots for the old Simplex with a mill file.

RS: What's the dates for the second from right, top photo? That's the one I've got, although different colors.

Yes, those were the one's I was referring to.  For notching boots, Marker supplied a very basic cutter that you could mount on the shop wall.  It has two cutting blades with the correct depth and spacing.  You'd chuck a 1/4" drill into it, stick the boot into a very inaccurate spring loaded guide, turn on the drill and hope you got it right.  There were no do overs.
