I've seen the light. I can really see the benefits of using the clicker and snowshoe mods on trips were your sloging in on relatively flat terrain to a basecamp. The weight off the foot would be huge. The inconvenience of having another thing to worry about during the transition and bindings in your backwould be minimized because you'd already have a big pack and wouldn't have many, if any, conversions.
dackdecents method seems the most bomber of all three mod (snowshoe, Clicker, and dynafit) but all are innovative and cool.
I do have have to say that on every split trip I've been on (1.5 seasons, ~15-20 tours), the skin tracks usually had one or more section were edge control was super beneficial.
