I haven't been able to find a photo, either. Mitch Cubberley died in 1977, and the company folded n 1979. The Mogul Jumper may actually have corresponded with the height of the freestyle era, around 1972, when Cubco faced overwhelming competition from the new plate bindings, not to mention a very aggressive new arrival -- Salomon.
See http://skiinghistory.org/releasebindings.html for more history.
fwiw, what I remember from WAY back when about these is;
-stronger springs front and rear
-the geometry on the toe piece was changed to make the upward release at the toe require more force
-the heel piece was mounted on what looked like a spring steel strap to give some elasticity and more shock absorbtion
-did they also receive a dark teflonish coating on all the metal surfaces as well?
I never did ski a pair of these but did do a season on the older standard Cubcos. Never had any real problems as far as I remember till along came Jet Stix....which made for a bad combination and many an upward pre-release (to be fair they were never designed for those kind of rearward forces).

Cubco Mogul Jumper bindings
I am looking for a print ad for these bindings. This should have been from around the mid 70's. One of Cubco's last attemps to survive before they went under.
Anyone ski them and or have a pair in the cellar?
