Pros: Adjustable

Cons: Heel pre releases

Coming from the alpine world, I love the feeling that the Hammerhead gives over a binding that doesn't actively bring the ski and boot together.  Am skiing it on the 4th position and absolutely love it.  Occasionally have had the heel release while skiing.  Have adjusted the spring tension and it seems to have solved the problem.  22Design sells a heel strap that also will prevent the heel from inadvertantly releasing.
22 Designs Hammerhead Telemark Binding
Description:

Get versatile, powerful flex with TwentyTwo Designs' HammerHead telemark binding. The two-inch spring easily adjusts to five dramatically different positions, giving the range you need for steep climbs and crazy descents. Leave the spring in its neutral setting during climbs, and preload it for powerful carves during descents. You get a responsive flex that puts the power to the edges of the ski when you drop a knee. TwentyTwo Designs made the toe piece with a six-hold mounting pattern that won't pull out and leave you walking out of the backcountry. Rocker launch, which is caused by stiff plastic boots flexing only across the toes, is virtually eliminated with the HammerHead's powerful underfoot cable routing and long toe piece. The HammerHead can be adjusted to fit any size boot without tools.
