    Other than the binding that was already posted a while back in the 300gr binding thread there doesn't seem to be a whole lot new stuff minus some color changes. I dunno, i do not follow Dynafit closely - i do not like their gear for the most part. Sorry if the link above already was posted.
    Dynafit IMO is coasting on their market share right now/ setting themselves to only compete on price since other than their skimo race they don't have a category leading product. Also it kinda pisses me off that they've become very loose/ lying about actual weights. For example, a ton of the first look and reviews of the TLT 8 that are out there are given numbers from Dynafit for the boot weight that is only the shell weight making them look lighter by about 200grams. Or them saying their DNA boot is the lightest in the world when both Sportiva and Pierre Gignoux both make lighter boots.
    TLDR; Ski faster. Quit breathing. Don't crash.

    Cliff Notes:
    Lange will come out with more of a 1400g touring boot 21/22 which allowed them to design the XT3 to be more of a skier's boot again, beefed up spine with a more useable touring range of motion...and POLYURETHANE.

    I spend probably 30-35% of the season on the XT Free Pro, with a booster strap, and Intuition Power Wrap liner for resort sidecountry (or Pro Tour for touring), and itís not as bad as some people say. Is it a race boot, no it will never replace my Head Raptor RS 140s, but for what it is, itís great. I usually ski it with a lighter ski, and itís fine. If you canít make it work, thatís on you.


    But, I am excited to give the XT3 a shot. Iíll probably customize the shit out of it again, but thatís me.

    Iím in for a new Katana108 if it skis anything like my current 14í Katanas.

    XT Free with tour wrap liner works well for my all traveling season this year. Sure, Iíd love to have my RS130s, but weight and space are a bit prohibitive and the free with the wrap liner both tourís ok and skis well.

    The PU hybrid core is pretty noticeable.
    How did the weight feel? Would be very interested in an M-Pro 99 186.

    I heard that next years Mach MV was supposed to be very cool. Interested to hear what this new tech is.

    According to Karl Fostadís story the Mindbender 116 is becoming a Mindbender 112 and 122 next year.

    Shapes look pretty similar to the current 116.

    Iím actually really excited about this because I was hoping K2 made a slightly narrower but same construction 116 for a sidecountry/touring ski. The 122 also sounds like a perfect pow day ski where you are boot packing or sidestepping all over to get pow. I wonder if my BMX 115s will hood their spot in the quiver.

    Stiff?
    A heavily rockered, 100mm, metal ski, with some camber and weight could be interesting. But not if it's planky stiff

    Thats the twin tip line called the reckoner 102, 112, and 122. The mindbenders return unchanged except for graphics. Looked like he also had a pair of the old powabungas that are all green and like 136 underfoot, but they also could have put an old powabunga top sheet on a prototype ski for him.

    All those intrigue me based on the limited pictures that Karl posted. If they come in adult lengths Iíll definitely be looking to demo them.

    Wow, someone went to the trouble of copying my picture and then croping, reversing it and changing the image tone.
