I went with the 180. I asked myself those same questions, Skifreak, and decided that the 180 is probably the better choice. My JJ are my backcountry setup and I'm generally very happy with them. They feel just right. I want to use the Magic J as a resort setup (I think), a little more muscle given that it'll be alpine vs. dynafit.

I've decided to pick up a pair of 2014 Magic J since the price is right and wanted some feedback on size. I currently ski the 185 JJ with DynaFit Radical FT. Not sure if I'm going to mount the Magic J with DynaFit or go alpine yet. I'm 6', 170, and wouldn't call myself a super aggressive skier. Should I dial it back to 180 for the Magic J or go for the 190? Any thoughts? Thanks!

I've been skiing a backcountry JJ setup for five years now and love love love them. I want to get a resort setup again and am torn between the JJs I know I love and these beautiful Magic Js. Any insights into how they differ? I live in Tahoe and ski around the lake, Mammoth, etc. My hunch is that the Magic Js don't quite perform as well as the JJ in variable conditions, hard pack, etc, but maybe I'm wrong? I know the JJs can handle pretty much anything I throw at them. But I bet the Magic Js are super sweet in pow. Thoughts? Experiences? Opinions? Thanks!

Duke or Fritschi? I've got a pair of Fritschis now and I like them. Putting together a second AT setup and am considering the Duke. Or should I stick with Fritschi? Thanks!

@Shane: Thanks for the feedback. Fritschi's are on a pair of Armada ARVs. Used to be on a pair of Havocs, but I like the ARVs better. Looking at getting a pair of Armada JJs for the deep stuff and want AT bindings for these as well. Honestly, I don't care about weight as much as I do about durability and build quality. I'll take an extra pound or two any day if the product is bomber. So, for the JJ, what would you suggest, Duke or Fritschi? Or should I just go for a Dynafit setup and get it over with? :)

What AT bindings would you recommend for the JJ? I've got Freerides on my ARVs, but the brakes aren't wide enough for the JJ. Any thoughts or suggestions?

I'd like some opinions. These skis look sweet. I got turned on to Armada last year and love my ARVs. Now I'm looking for something for the backcountry, something fat. Considering the ARGs, but these look great too. Any thoughts? Mostly ski the Sierra, fyi. Thanks in advance!

Good question! I have an older Skyledge 2 and love it. I recently bought a Skyledge 3 and am not impressed. Everything from the footprint to the tent itself feels far less durable. Furthermore, on my first night out in the new tent, one of the poles split in half. The older Skyledge 2 poles (red, not gray) seem far more durable to me. Needless to say, I'm looking for another tent...
