I bought a pair of marker schizos last year and bought the griffons this year
Marker's royal family bindings are ridiculous--ridiculously good!
They are super light and really help initiate a turn, especially on fatter skis (due to a wider base plate).
My one complaint, like many others, is the fact that they do get scratched easily (mainly the grey paint).
Although this makes the bindings look less attractive, the performance is not affected whatsoever.

Hope this review helps!

These skis kill it--everything!
theres nothing these skis cannot do.
I took them out for the first time today with 13 inches of new snow and they were amazing!
They keep you floating above the powder and the 5-dimension sidecut makes it really easy to slash your turns.
They are OKAY on the groomers, especially for a pow ski they are actually pretty sweet.
They are really snappy but very stable as well
these are basically the best all mountain powder ski on the market!!

By the way....
I am 5'6" and 125 lbs.
I ski the 175 cm length
I have marker griffons mounted on them at the recommended mounting point

I have a question about the 2009-2010...

I have a question about the 2009-2010 Armada JJs. I bought a pair and I noticed that the sidewalls are aligned perfectly but the logos that say "armada" on the ABS sidewalls are not aligned together.... is my product defective? THese are the 2009-2010 model and everything else is aligned together except the logos on the sidewalls. If you put the two skis together (base to base), the sidewall logo of one ski is higher than the other. I have a photo to better explain what i mean.

I really like these boots, they are really easy to put up because of the two buckle system and you can get them on and off within seconds. They are pretty comfortable and have a nice all-mountain flex. They also look very cool. My one complaint on these boots is that the bottom buckle hurts the bone on my foot when tightened. It didnt affect my overall rating on these boots because I think it has to do with my foot and not the boots. My foot often feels like that in other boots too.

This helmet is super comfortable and has pretty good ventilation plus its super lightweight.
My only complaint about these skis would be that the padding on the chin strap does not bend well and is pretty stiff, the more you use it, the more it wears out and fits the chin better. One of the best helmets out there.

These poles are really nice and great in powder. My one concern is that they are a bit heavy. For adjustable poles, they are moderately light, but for normal non-adjustable poles, they are not exactly light. You become more accomodated to the weight the more you use them. Besides the weight, they are really nice looking poles and are great quality. You cannot go wrong with Black Diamond poles.

They only make skiing even better than it already is. They are pretty durable. They are a bit heavy but you get used to the weight quickly. great for carving thanks to the fat toe piece (especially with wider skis). they are super versatile and cool looking. I would definitely recommend this binding to anyone who wants to ski everything all over the mountain.

Emil Martayanwrote a question about on October 26, 2009

how is the fit of the binding? when i was much younger i had the basic marker bindings (not from the royal family) and the feel of the binding was horrible--you could tell they were bad quality. then i switched to some salomon bindings and really enjoyed how the boot snapped in and the feel of the binding was really nice. Im planning on buying these but i dont want them to feel like my old marker bindings. I think these will be better because many of the pros use marker royal family bindings but im still not sure, can someone help me?
