    Anyone have their bindings catch on the skis causing them to lock together momentarily while skiing (I ski tight)?

    I had it happen to me in the past so I cut the inside brake off of each binding to fix the problem (it worked but it does look odd lol)

    I'm about to mount new bindings up and wondering if anyone had an alternative fix (tried searching and couldn't find anything).

    I can't be the only person on the planet that has this happen?

    Not exactly safe. Binding brakes aren't just for convenience. If you're skiing inbounds (based on the Griffs comment) -- you owe it to other people on the hill to have properly functioning brakes -- lest a ski go rocketing down a groomer into someone. One side ain't going to stop a ski on a groomer or firm snow.

    Different brakes retract differently. I tend to choose a brake narrower than the ski and stretch it just a bit.

    One constant issue with Marker Royal series bindings is the lack of a 100mm brake available.

    How about a 100mm brake for the Royal bindings? With so many 98-102mm skis on the market, 90 mm is too narrow and 110 mm just hangs over. This would have been a better investment of time and money than the 120mm brake.
