First off, let me say that these skis rock for me. I posted several times earlier on these skis.
Let me also say that the system bindings that you have to use with these skis absolutely suck. Twice in the last couple of times I've skied on these, I have stepped out of the heels of these bindings in a spot where it was quite dangerous to come out of them.
In both instances, the bindings had been recently tested (including for for forward pressure) and in both instances, there was no reason to come out of them...I was making a very non-agressive turn to scrub a little bit of speed before going into a pretty extreme piece of terrain. Once was in the cirque at Snowbird chasing BWPA and the second time was at Magic on Black Line chasing Live4Ski.
Has anyone else had a similar experience? Are there any alternative bindings that will work with the AB interface?
I'm at the point of tossing the skis onto eBay to get rid of them because I'm just not confident skiing on these things any more. Any thoughts?
