binder for all my needs
I put this on all my skis. it's stiff enough for mary-jane bumps and ripping down berthoud pass chutes, and light enough for the hike back up. I have never had a problem with either the aluminum or SS toe plate, and I'll buy either one. I frequently stomp on the heel plate and break it, and I broke a cable once, but only after heavy and prolonged abuse. I'm shaped like a hairless gorilla and this binder has done anything I've asked of it. I ride the xmountain cartridges.

The toe plate (black part between the riser and anti-ice plate) is weak on the T/9s. I was skiing at a resort in 40 degree weather and cracked the aluminum at all 4 screw holes. One ripped all the way through, bending and breaking the plate beyond repair. It's 40 bucks for a new toe plate, and I'm going to replace it with the normal stainless Targa version instead or the aluminum.
G3 Targa T9's
I dig 'em. No problems. I'm also of the school of the Rainey Super Loops and I loved those. Still have them.

Is there a crampon that can mount on these bindings?
Try the Voile Universal Crampon. It comes in 92mm and 112mm. The Voile will work with about any binding.

I am interested in buying this for my husband, an advanced to extreme type skier (was a heli ski guide) who wears a size 13 tele boot. I heard there are issues with the Targa T9 if a guy is big and aggressive. Do I need to worry about this, or is the binding a good choice? He has the normal G3 Targe right now, needs a new binding.
Get Hammerheads. Hammerheads are so much better than any other binding on the market. He will never stop thanking you.

I need a back country repair kit for the T/9. Do they offer one?
Try the G3 website.
The regular Targa backcountry repair kit will work, it just won't match the color scheme. The only difference between the Targas and the T/9 is the color of plastic, cable color, binding shim color and an aluminum vs. steel toe box. So, the only REAL difference is the toe box material. The rest is superficial.

What's the difference between these and the G3 Targas?Thanks,Doc
The T/9 bindings have an aluminum plate in them which makes them lighter them the stainless steel on the regular Targas. Although they are light, the luminum can crack in very cold wether.

What is the difference between the Worldcup, Xmountain, and Crosstour models?
That's the different stiffness levels of the cartridges, in the order you listed them from most to least stiff.
