Used on Movement Vertex, got the ones with brakes. I have brakes on none of my other skis, but wanted one pair with them, also because I like the higher heel plug for an all-around ski. Skied for a few days at Snowbird, so have not really worked this in the BC as yet. My first impression is that Plum has a very refined design - the bindings are easier to get into than most dynafit-type ones I've used or own. The brake locks in the up position (so it's out of the way when touring), which is also handy for wa...

I got these to outfit my 8 year old. He's mostly done xc, and a little downhill on east coast hills (ie, tilted football fields.) I was going to use their binders too, but the ebay boots I got him on this year were too big, so went for a small Fritchi Daimir. The setup is not light, but it's not like he's going to skin all night. They ski like a million bucks - you can tell they are much better handling than the rentals he's been on, and even in a 135, likely 10-20 cm longer than he rents, he has better con...
