See my reply, below, to Tom S. Get Garmont excursions, install Intuition alpine liners and add a Garmont power strap (I pop riveted mine to the top of the boot shell in rear). This creates a tele boot with all the power we old folks need, and mine are lighter than any of my NNN BC boots. I use mine on everything from narrow touring skis (Fischer E99) to BD Kilowatts, and I like them better than my T1s. This brings me to my problem with the Axl: even the most forward pivot point is not light enough for me (132 lbs). I think you will like the performance of the Voile Switchback or the Targa T3 Ascents better than that of the Axl (I do). But get the Voile (see my review of the Targa Ascent, posted elsewhere on this web site today). Before you were skiing back country, I was doing this with wood skis and carried an extra plastic ski tip. Now when I ski with Targas, I have to carry an entire extra binding.
