Flaky Beginner Binding
Got this binding for my '10 Rome Crail. Rode just fine for the first 5-10 times out. Then the binding began to fall apart. The rubber parts covering the screws fell off, then the screws holding the straps in slowly loosened and eventually one fell out. More recently, the plastic bits connecting the toe strap simply tore through. I'm not riding this binding hard at all--simply doesn't hold up under normal use.
p.s. Rome SDS was nice enough to send me replacement parts, but I'd rather stay on the mountain than get free replacement parts in the mail...
