The JJs are wide - do I need a riser under my tele bindings or does it depend on the tele binding? Thank you to Mike and to "nawrocki1039375" - I appreciate your advice re: bindings in general. I am intrigued by 22 Designs AXL and the RT Bulldogs. The RT Bulldogs are about a pound lighter than the AXL. According to the AXL "tech" info. re: risers "Axls are plenty high" (i.e., no need for risers). I do admit that the Black Diamond 01's are appealing b/c I know the company better and the bindings have been around longer & have been reviewed more extensively. However, I feel like I should not give into this "brand" weakness b/c I might be missing out on something better!

I've read that these switch from ski to tour mode while you're skiing. Yikes! These reviews were based on the bindings performance at the area and date back to 2008... Has Voile dealt with & fixed this problem? I only have one pair of skis I will be using both at the area & in the backcountry (equal time). Are these bindings not a good fit for people at the area because of this issue? Thanks for your insights.

Which telemark bindings should I mount on Armada JJs? Okay, based on these & other awesome reviews I just bought the 175cm JJs. I'm psyched! Now... what telemark bindings do folks suggest I mount on them? I assume I should put a riser under the binding? I plan to ski at the area & to tour. So far, I've only seen reviews from guys (which have been great); I plan to ride them in early December and after that I'll provide a review from a female's perspective in case other gals are interested in a gal's perspective on the ski. Thanks for your suggestions!

Hi all - I've loved reading these reviews! I am a 5'6" 125 lb. female and an advanced/expert skier (although I don't huck cliffs like I used to). I telemark (I used to downhill & I still snowboard). I like to ski all conditions (I feel it's good to know how to ski them all even if it's not easy). I ski in Montana, Tahoe & in Utah. I am wondering how these would be for someone of my size & ability as telemark skis. I would hope to use them at the resort & in the backcountry. I have never skied rocker skis, but I'm up for the experience/revolution. I would love to hear your input!
