Could you compare the performance and character of the AT 85 to the Magico.2? On paper I would guess the Movement would be a little turnier, more tolerant of a centered stance, but how do they actually ski?
Hi, I come out at a release value of 8 on the binding finder, and I usually ski my adjustable AT bindings at around that value. From the comments here it sounds like the 4mm steel spring version of this binding would be closest to that release value. Is that correct?

What’s the max length of these poles? Not sure it matters, but let’s say I want the downhill length to be 125cm - how long can I then extend them for poling?

How does the “Smart glue” on the Alpinist skins compare to a traditional glue like, say, the Pomoca skins, and the “non glue” used on the Kohla Vacuum skins, in terms of stick ability and ease of removal? Is it somewhere in between, making it significantly easier than traditional glue to remove skins from skis or pull them apart once stuck to themselves, or is it really just a traditional glue with a smart name?

I understand the hole pattern is the same as the Ion. But, on the heel piece, is the position of the holes relative to the heel pins also the same, so that you could replace an Ion with a Zed without redrilling, and still fit the same boots? Also, given the comment about the screws having unusually small heads, are the screws short enough for the thinner skis out there such as the Völkl BMT series? If not, are there compatible screws available in shorter lengths with the same heads?
