@Slim thanks for the post. One comment on removable brakes. In my limited experience (two seasons) with G3 Zed bindings with removable brakes, Zed brakes are flimsy, deploy unexpected, and feel like they are made in a toy factory. Similar experiences with other brands that offer removable brakes as well. For relatively light and metal bindings, the AmerSports brakes are solid and are not prone to breakage. Same with Dynafit. My advice is to either purchase binding with solid, non-removable brakes or bindings with leaches.
