My Skiing

Previous telemarker. Any AT boot I use seems easy to ski. Prefer long mellows days than steeps, though I occasionally do steeps if I need to because of a summit trip.

My Gear

TLT5 and Voile Vector for most backcountry days
Dalbello Virus and Voile Vector inbounds; Dynafit Vertical ST
Scarpa T2 and Karhu Guide, with releasable Voile bindings

Your write-up says these match G3 6-hole pattern. I seem to recall that the old standard Voile 4-hole pattern also matches the G3 pattern, which just has two extra holes. But I'm not sure whether they match up in terms of the position (fore/aft) on the ski. I have skis mounted with Voile CRBs. If I want to replace them with the Kreuzspitze set-up, will I be able to use the same holes? What do you think?

I'm extremely happy with these skis. Only used twice, but once was in a resort under all sorts of conditions, from mank to spring slush to ice to some good powder stashes. I am not going to bash these up by making them my resort ski of course, but it was a good test I thought. Confident I can ski these in any conditions the backcountry throws at me. (The one thing that was a bit strange was that I felt that I fell into the backseat a bit -- perhaps because the tails are soft? That's why this initial ...
Love them. Skimo did a great job mounting the heel piece with Quiver killers, so I can easily remove the brakes for days when I'm doing a long tour and don't need or want them. Not quite "easily", as it takes a bit of fiddling and "snapping" the baseplate on or off from the actual binding. But this isn't something I expect to do often, and it's a very nice feature.

I though it would be useful for folks considering this binding to recognize that they accept Dynafit, ATK *AND* Plum crampons. The great thing about the Plum crampons is that they drop in from the top, rather than slide from the side. Much easier, and far more secure, and less prone to icing.
