I would stay away from the targa ascent. I haven't heard any good reviews from people who have skied that binding and other bindings. The targa design hasn't kept up with others.
Anyway, you'll be fine if you get a setup with hammerheads or cobra r8's, or if you find a deal on skis with voile switchbacks, that would be great. Axl will cost you at least $260 alone, but I am sure it skis great.
Check the telemarktips.com turnaround/swap page for deals. My recommendation is to get a ski in the 180-190 range that is at least 95mm underfoot. No worries re: the kilowatt, I think I've got a buyer in d-town, was just throwing it out there.
