I don't have nearly as many days on them as some people here, but I ride these as my only binding as I don't ride solid boards anymore. So I have maybe 25 days on them. Not a single issue, they feel solid and i'm postitive my heel doesn't move at all while touring. This is your problem, it shouldn't do that. The Blaze with the Voile risers I had before moved way more because the risers were not as wide. We also had about 7 pairs of these bindings at my Splitfest, without any issues or complaints. To me it's the best binding i've tried. Like rughty, i've taken one of the touring risers off because it's faster to flip them up.
I also know somebody who has these on all their rental boards without any problems. Talk to Spark directly, they might be interested in the cause of this.

I don't have a ton of days on mine, but have used them for a few days regular touring/riding and some backpacking trips carrying like 40 lbs. on my back and so far no real issues. Only thing that looks to be of concern is that I can see metal flakes after each trip from the pins grinding on the metal ring inserts that they pivot on. I could see this possibly being an issue over time, making for some slop and possibly putting stress on other areas. Also the inside of both my front binding straps have slits in them from my operator error clipping the other one, so I might have to replace those at some point. That's my bad of course. Overall really happy with these bindings though. So much more efficient and lighter than the damn Viole pin system. Time will tell on the durability of them though...

We've had a crappy winter here on Kodiak, so less touring days than normal. My Tesla Magnetos have had one of the touring pins work it's way out about 2mm on two occasions, but after shoving it back in and subsequently greasing the touring bracket interface, things have been good. Both our sets of Tesla Afterburners have been good. Still, not a lot of days on them... And I'm a little nervous now...
