Steel isn't the only magnetic metal.

Steel may not be the only magnetic metal but the lightest most comparable to the wieght of binding would be aluminum, and thats not magnetic.

Remember in order to have a proper magnetic grip, the metal your griping HAS to be a certain thickness no mater how powerfull tbe magnet, example look at the giant scrapyard magnet u guys are using as a comparison, notice all the thinner metal just falls off. Any metal you use will be heavier then the wieght of plastic and foam bindings so yes youll add about 3 times the weight and the shock absorbtion would then be all in your boots and centralized to werever the magnet and metal meet making a localized pressure point.

So weight saving is outa the question.
Life is a giant high five, huck it every chance you get.
