Because of my confidence in Overton's promise on the return, I took a chance that this binding might be a good replacement for a broken one on a set of Connelly double skis. If the description had noted which skis this binding would fit specifically, I would have known before ordering that it would not fit the Performer ski without special mounting....which I was not able to have done. Therefore, I was delighted to find that the return policy was quick and painless. I do NOT regret giving this a try and appreciate Overton's Exceptional Service for making that possible. Next time I will call to ask more questions/advice to make sure I check to see if the item I order will fit. Great Job Overton's!!

Interesting in that another reviewer commented that he was replacing a torn binding. We are forced to order a replacement also, for a set of O'Brien combo family skis used just four times this Summer before the binding tore. One has to wonder why O'Brien would put such a remarkably fragile binding on a set of skis designed for beginners where one can reasonably expect a lot of "feet in, feet out" wear and, excuse the pun, "tear."
"Yes" recommendation to a friend and two stars are only because one has little choice but to replace the existing part for the skis to function as designed and ostensibly, part will be replaced under warranty. We'll see how the replacement holds up.
Comments about O'Brien OBrien 700 Adjustable Heel Binding:
I wouldn't use this on good quality skis but this replaced a torn heel boot on an old, entry level Cut 'n Jump ski. Didn't have to guess what piece of rubber to get (cost was about the same for this binding anyway). Simply unscrewed the old heel binding, put the new in place, marked / drilled holes, and boom, ready to use. Great for fixing entry level (cheap) skis.
Was this a gift?:
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
