i have linkens on all my skis. they rock, in my opinion. i tour with them - i think the neutral flex is great for touring. i had hammerheads before and never wanted to adjust the pivot point (and you can't in the bc often because it ices up) and so i was stuck with a more active binding going up than i wanted.
the step-in feature is nice, you can keep up with your bondage friends. it will release sometimes upon landing large drops or major starfish action, so wear leashes.
the edge control that can be attained with linkens is the best out there, except maybe the bombers. the only negatives to the binding in my opinion are that you have to learn to really do the boot flexing work yourself -- they are very neutral and won't do it for you like cobras, hh's, or other active bindings. Second, they have some rocker-lauch because of the flat toe bar, whereas a bomber doesn't have it at all with the toe bail design. i have learned to love them (didn't take long) and won't be switching until a completely new system comes along, like no duckbills.
caviat: i have t-1 races (which i think are a great touring boot) and the skis that i use regularly are all over 100mm at the waist.
