Hey, Thanks to All for the input.
I guess if you stay away for a couple of days you end up missing the whole conversation, huh?
I was planning to put these bindings on some Crossmax 9's, the one's w/out the pilot system. I'm no expert (yet) since most my life I've been concentrating on photography and not skiing (after admitting that, am I still allowed to be on the forum?)
I'm a lightweight (140lbs) and 5'8'' and love to be challenged by the terrain. I split my time between groomers and off-piste pretty evenly, but enjoy bumps and trees more than anything else.
So, I'm looking for a fairly light set-up which will do the bumps fairly well, still can float, loves short turns and won't chatter all over the place when I get the urge to go fast. I would rather sacrifice speed than short turn ability.
I'm also looking at the Volkl 4****, but have not made up my mind mainly because I can't find a place to demo either one of these skis. If anybody knows any place in Colorado who has these skis I'd be willing to drive all day just to try them out.
