They don't have nearly as much info out there about it as the others, but the taller stack-height is definitely a turn-off for the same reason it is with Dukes (for some of us). That's a huge part of the appeal with the Guardian / Tracker (for some of us).
Also, agreed on the euro music. That deserves a vote on its own.

Is that you have some nascent hatred of Marker, and every time you see the word it makes your blood boil more? Or is it that you are infatuated with Fritschis and don't like anybody dissing them....even if they own and use them? Or is it that you actually HATE Fritschis...think they suck uphill and downhill?
Or, much more likely, is it that you feel you must make some inane, juvenile response to every single post I make...regardless of the subject?
I'm putting my money on the latter.

Man, if you aren't going to get some plum or dynafits, get some Dukes. Might as well be in a heavy binder with more rigid feel than the Fritschie type.
Dynafits are the stuff though. I've torn them out of a ski and the toe piece was still on my boot. Tough.

I know you excluded tech bindings but I am in the "none of the above" camp, and I thought some might want to hear why.
I skied PLUM guides mounted on 190 Liberty Double Helixes hard for 2 months in Chile this summer. I always locked the toes out for the down. I realize this may have a downside, but I aim not to crash badly or when going too fast and I accept the risk. On the days when variable conditions required me to really wrench on the binding (read:high speed side slipping on a 121mm waisted ski in variable snow), on deep days when it was time to huck (around 30feet was the biggest), and on firm days when I was carving all day, I had no unwanted releases, nor problems of any kind.
As an aside, a test in Euroland last winter proved tech bindings provide a more direct energy transfer between the ski and boot than ANY alpine or AT binder.But anyways, these bindings held me onto a really wide ski during a lot of (for me) really aggressive skiing, so I would not want to ski anything else.
