    they were last gen, copper color, not affected by recall and straight from marker rep, so he wasn't expecting. But yeah, I agree, I said the same.

    I'm not sure why anyone trusts any lightweight binding for a big, remote trip. Hell, I bring spares for almost everything on a long weekend road trip.

    king pin is not lightweight and is the least trust worthy piece of equipment i have owned in the last 15 years. total garbage. the recall was a joke as well.

    all kinds of Kingpin failures on TGR and skiers I know in my town

    but in the BC shop 400kms east they tell me there were exactly 2 Kingpin breakdowns

    Geoff the big guy who had 5 failures last year didn't have any this year

    I'm looking for the pattern and i just don't get it

    These bindings are like a foot of blower over a persistent weak layer - so tempting (at least when they were first released), and yet we're all just waiting and waiting for them to blow. The fact that the collective hasn't been able to determine a pattern is disturbing.

    No question about that. I have a perverse curiosity about this thread - like watching a car wreck.

    Does anyone know if DMM is still involved in the Kingpin"s manufacture? The first year pins falling out always puzzled me, given how many 'biners they've manufactured.
