Bought these for my wife's 75th birthday, here's her review: First day out, very happy with them. Skied extremely well; no effort. Just go. Very light weight and good looking too! Matches the green on my TLT5 boots.

What a great binding. Refined. Well engineered, thoroughly thought out in so many ways. Read the description. Very light. Only ~5 oz/binding more than the Superlite 2.0 with B&D adjustment plate and antitwist; add the SL brakes and it is pretty much a wash for weight, but the Core gives you adjustable lateral and vertical release values, flat on heel and 4 heel lifts (SL 2.0 with antiwist gives you flat on heel w/o brakes and two low heel lifts). Add the adj. plate & antitwist and the price difference d...
Skimo set these up for me with Hagan Core bindings and Pomoca Climb Pro S-Glide skins. I was looking for a ski as much of a crusher as my 177 Movement Shift (137-98-125; 3,642 g/pair with Plum Guides w/o brakes) but lighter, these are 177 cm, 132-100-120, and 3,170 g/pair with the Core bindings (w brakes). The Shifts (very similar to the newer Control) are great skis for heavier muscular guys and require strong input, I've enjoyed them greatly. But they tend to hook in trap crust (styrofoam like crust th...

I bought these after I wore out the liners (and had trouble finding a replacment--finally ordedred Tourlites from Palau in France) and busted a rivet (eventually replaced) on my TLT6M. Fit is slightly tighter than the TLT6, more roomy in the forefoot than the TLT5--fine for me. I prefer the Boa over the single buckle on the TLT6--easily to adjust finely for striding and for skiing down; gives a more secure feeling along the forefoot--more of a feeling than an effect tho. Likewise I like the finely adjust...
I have these for my Manaslus, my wife's Manaslus, and my Cho Oyus. Work great gliding, climbing, traversing; attacment setup is the best around. Glue gets sticky after awhile but they reglue easily. I've renewed the waterproofing with Nikwax and will use BC glop stopper on those days. Even so, I prefer the Pomoca Climb Pro Glide and the S Glides will probably be the next skins I buy--they haven't been quite as ready to glop with snow and seem to climb a little better.
