is posting OR reports and describes the NTN and Scarpa boot with his typical tongue in check ribbing of tele gear.
I checked out the JetBoil system and new utensils. They're pretty cool. Additionally, G3 has a new tip connection system for their skins for wider skis. It's two riveted metal clips (1/2"/13mm or so) secure the skin around the tip 'corners' versus their loops. Lots of cool stuff coming out.
From one source, waiting for BD to 'solve the problem' with their proprietary boot and binding with 75mm binding compatible system may be well worth the wait.
