I am not sure about other issues, but I know that the 412s and 614s had to have the forward pressure adjusted without the boot in the binding, but I think that with all (or almost all) other binding this could be done with the boot in the binding. Put boot in binding, adjust binding forward to appropriate mark and you are done, but on the old 412 and 614 Atomics you had to put boot in binding, look at mark, take boot out, adjust, put boot back in, look at mark, take boot out, repeat until the adjustment screw was on the proper spot. If you adjusted them like all other bindings (with the boot in them) you stripped the adjustment screw and they would pre-release, afterwhich they would probably be adjusted farther and farther forward trying to remedy the pre-release, until they broke. If I am correct, hundreds of clueless "binding techs" screwed up thousands of Atomic bindings, which is something different than the recall on some year's models of the same bindings.
I have been using the 412s and 614s for years with no problem. The one pair I got on some used skis had heel pre-release problems that could not be fixed with out replacing the entire heel pieces.
