Me: 195lbs, 5'11" - advanced/aggressive
Powder skis: Head Jimi110 (171cm)
Bindings: Head Mojo15, DIN8 (front and back)
I bought them with the Mojo15 mounted. Had a slight problem with them pre-releasing but that was my fault - I did not check them before hitting the sloes this year and the tails were set to DIN 5, fronts were mismatched - one DIN 6 the other was DIN 7. They did come off when I needed them to however - my tip got trapped in a hole skiing the glades in Symphony Bowl (I'll post that story later in a "lessons learned this season" thread).
After resetting hem to DIN 8 all-around I had no problems, skied Sapphire Bowl, the Couloir and the Blowhole on Blackcomb and they never came off once.
Can't say much about the weight but the entire package is much lighter than my carvers - Head Peak78s (177cm) with Head RFD 12 bindings on DIN 10. The Peaks are a MUCH heavier ski (lots more metal, longer, stiffer) and account for most of the weight difference.
FYI: I am researching AT bindings now and have narrowed my choices to Marker Duke 16s (Dawgcatchin's sold out of them, damn!) or the Fritschi Freeride Pro. These'll be for sidecountry with a bit of backcountry thrown in. I am considering only these two so I will be able to use my alpine boots - I'd need to get a new boot for a Dynafits. Also they support a brake size wide enough for the new skis I want (Tyfoons, 175cm) without mods.

Does that include the Duke 16s too skinom?
