Fishscales will not climb like skins. But for rolling terrain, not having to deploy and remove skins is a great advantage. And you can always slap skins over the scales for sustained, steep climbs. I've never put AT bindings on fishscales but it has been discussed extensively at telemarktips.

 

Do it! And tell us how it worked out.

I have a pair of these skis. They work great for general touring where there is a good amount of up and down but lots of lull in between.

 

Slap a pair of silvretta 500s on them and you'll be stoked. If the angle kicks up, you can throw some skins on them and they will do great. You do sacrifice a little glide at times due to the scales but I think you'll like them! Ultimately you still get way more glide than with a pair of skins on all the time.
