My preferences would be as follows:
1 - Rossignol Axial T-Plate 120 or Look Pivot MaxPlate P12. These are the same binding with different branding. The plate gives you a little more lift and vibration absorbtion.
2 - Salomon 912Ti PE2. This is the plate version of the Salomon 912Ti. If you are looking for something really light weight get the non-plate 912Ti.
3 - Tyrolia LD 12 Railflex. This is a binding that really intrigues me but I haven't had any experience with it yet. Everyone that has commented on them on this forum loves them. The advantage of the Railflex is it allows you to move the binding fore and aft on the ski to find the optimal position. Atomic bindings allow you to do this but they weigh more and they're Atomic bindings. If you are concerned about the mount point on your new skis you should look into these bindings.
I had a chance last weekend to ski the XT with the 912 Ti Pe2 set up and the skis ROCKED!
Just ordered the skis and the bindings
Thanks everybody for your input!
P.S. Does anyone know the base and side edge angles for the K2 XT?
