.Rottefella makes a release plate as well, which has worked well all last year for me, -or maybe i just never had a memorable yardsale, (i am pretty much intermediate) but last week at taos my left foot came out three times during the day, two on relatively low angle slopes, but the third time was on the top pitch of Al's run- which is pretty steep, and i did not have fun getting it back on. maybe it was beer20 or maybe i was just tired, or maybe it was because i was under the lift, most likely all three, but it was a good lesson, considering i had never actually done it before. i am going to look into adjusting them. all of my incidents were twisting @ the ankle area, not forward bails (?)
my buddy at the tele shop called them 'knee insurance', well worth it for that (i've torn meniscus and had both knees 'scoped from snowboarding ) but no one said anything @ tib-fib fx. thanks for the heads up , but i'm sorry to hear about this way . i would definitely add my vote for plates , although they add at least 2-3 cm of height to the bindings, which could be a concern, but hasn't been for me... ! buena suerte healing fast !
