    Bought last year new, used about 10 times at Falls Creek and backcountry.

    The price I'm asking is $1000 for all of it.

    (if bought new the bindings are $650, the skis are $600 and the boots are $900) - here are links to the new products if you'd like to know more details:

    Crispi boots: http://www.bogong.com.au/crispi-evo-ntn-telemark-boot-29261.html
    NTN Freedom bindings: http://www.bogong.com.au/rottefella-ntn-freedom-binding.html
    Majesty skis: https://www.everestsports.com.au/product/majesty-all-mountain-ski-local-hero/#.XMjpbbczbIU

    The freedom bindings have blue power boxes.
    No damage to boots, bindings or ski bases - some wear marks around metal edges.

    What size are the boots, and length of the skis?
    Are the bindings large or small?

    Yes, important information - I must have been in a hurry!

    The skis are 168cm
    The bindings are large
    The boots are EU 44 (mondo point 290)

    On sizing.....
    Mondo 29 shows as a Euro 45 in the ski charts I've looked up e.g.
    https://www.gearx.com/blog/knowledge/skiing/mondopoint-what-is-it-and-how-is-it-measured/
    However with different last and manufacturers and "comfort fit" (bigger foot volume) vs "race fit" (smaller foot volume) my thought is that trying them on is the only way to know what's going to work in a particular boot. I'll take a 42 or a 43 depending on the boot which would be mondo 27 or 27.5. I'm a 42.5. A "race fit" mondo 28 may also work for me if my heel fit is good and importantly for telemark, depending on where the bellows break point is.

    Those Crispi EVO boots still have the heel inserts for AT heels. If they were a 27.5 mondo I'd be trying them on for yours truly. Best of both worlds. Pity Scarpa and Scott dropped the heel inserts in their NTN boots for fear of litigation when skiers were not using a suitable puck to prevent the bellows causing pre-release from tech heels.
