I started tele-skiing on old 3-pin mountaineering bindings and Ranney Super-Loops. Moved up to the G3 Targa when they came out. I have been on these for 3 years now and could not be happier. These were a great step forward from my previous bindings and I immediately saw an improvement in my control at speed and when turning in the steeper terrain. Depending on what your boot/ski combination is (especially if you are on fat skis w/big boots), you might want to spring for the rid-stiff cartridges.

I guess I am old school, but I alway size for the waist of the ski. I hate when I fold them up and I get glue sticking everywhere. That said, I would probably aim for 100 wide to minimize that issue. I agree with Matthew that the tip does not get you much traction anyway.

I have seen these "retrofit" ideas posted various places. I would say it is a bad idea generally. I wear the original style Avalung along with my normal ski pack. While it is a a little more work getting it all on and off, I am not going to second guess the BD guys and "hope" that zip ties and duct tape keep it on me if I get caught in an avalanche. I see it like folks who keep their beacons in their jacket pocket because they don't like the harness. If you want it integrated, save up and buy it built that way.
