If you are interested in the excellent and popular line of Atomic Metron skis, you are pretty much locked into Atomic bindings - specifically the NEOX line of bindings, the 412 or 614. Fortunately, these NEOX binding are comparable in quality, design, and peformance to the other leading bindings on the market from Marker and others.Downsides: Price and weight. they seem to me to be quite heavy. I purchased the 2006 model, which is supposed to be 1 pound lighter than the 2005 model. I can't imagine how heavy the 2005 model must have felt. Mine are mounted on Atomic M:11 skis. Together they make an excellent (if heavy) setup. Ease of operation is exactly like any other high-end binding. Steering and power transmission from my boots to the skis is excellent. My experience with the release/retention has been predictable and reliable.The Model numbers (614, 412) equate to DIN settings. The overall design is pretty much identical between both models. The 412 has DIN ratings from 4 to 12. The 614 from 6 to 14. So, the 614 has heavier-duty springs for heavier-duty skiers. I set my DIN at 7.5 to 8. So that puts me right smack in the middle of the 412 range. That's where you're supposed to be. Right in the middle of the binding's range. So although I consider myself to be a very aggressive, advanced skier, I wouldn't shell out the extra dough for the 614 model.Most ski companies seem to be locking us into their own brand of binding. If you want Atomic skis, you're stuck with Atomic bindings. In this case, it's not such a bad thing.Could you mount this binding on another flat ski? I believe you could. However, I would guess that you could find a lighter, less expensive binding that would do the job just as well.
Look carefully at the pictured brake profile after removing your own brake to determine the correct compatibility. The Neox TL model brake has a metal tag behind the plastic body which holds the mounting screw when attached to the binding. Please view the picture below to determine if the TL Neox is the correct model brake for your Atomic bindings.

Why do you care if a binding is still indemnified? Because if you buy skis with non-indemnified bindings, you probably won't find a shop willing to adjust them for you. If you do find a shop that will work on old bindings, they will make you sign a hold harmless form.
The ski and snowboard industry is relying on its collective lack of foresight and overwhelming sense of paranoia to not publish an indemnified bindings list for the general public this season. Rather than educate customers, the industry is keeping this information secret. Once again we expect to see a surge in past skiers who have no clue what indemnification is all about, and since it is all a big secret, will quickly learn to distrust retailers.

EU WARNING (Marker): On 5 February 2007, the European Commission issued a warning to all EU national consumer authorities regarding a serious risk of injury...concerns Marker Demo ski bindings, model M1 11.0 D, item number 6778F1SE...affixed to Apache Outlaws, Recons, Crossfires, Stryker and Moto Cross K2 skis. The notified bindings present a serious risk of injury to consumers because in certain circumstances the lever can release when kicked or knocked by the user, allowing the boot fittings to move on their track. This may result in injury due to an untimely release of the boots from the skis. Four accidents in the US and one in the UK have been reported until now. The ski binding is adaptable to a variety of boot sizes for use primarily in rental applications. The adjustable front and back boot fittings are locked into place on a track by way of a lever at the rear of the mounting.Beyond this, we find the following bindings as current, according to Marker's website:
