Re: Sbounds...leathers

Agree with lilcliffy. Long, traditonal, waxable touring skis are the way to go for touring especially in the colder conditions that I experience in SW Montana. Last season I used kick wax on my Asnes to climb/tour instead of skins with good results. I still have environmental concerns with ski wax ...

Rossi BC 110

I have the opportunity to get a pair of those... I had, many years ago a pair of BC 90; they are probably the worst ski I ever had. Stiff & high camber, relatively important sidecut, scales that do not climb... they felt like frankensteinish in design. I wonder about the BC 110; they say low cam...

Re: Telemark Ski and binding question

Plug the holes... Mount the new ones so that you clear at least a cm from old holes... That's it. But that's a crime! You should try those Superloop bindings first! (yellow and black) ;)

If you want to get rid of them, let me know...

Re: Rottefella Super Tele WITH STRAP

It goes around the front of the boot to keep it snug into the binding... Can't wait to try this!

Re: Rottefella Super Tele WITH STRAP

I'm assuming he did this to increase the binding activity in downhill skiing. Loosen it for the up and along, cinch it for the down. I look forward to your feedback Rod on how it works :) . Yeah... And if you try it, you'll see: big difference (in the workshop vise, not on the slope). My question i...

Rottefella Super Tele WITH STRAP

Some guy send me a pair of those Rottefella Super Tele. And he was using them with Straps, to keep its boots tightly fit in the binding. I didn't know about the functionality of those slots on each side of the binding. Anyone knew? Here is a picture:

Re: Slightly active bindings: Voile Switchback or X2

Ok Al. No offense and thanks for the clarification. I thought that since you quote my joke, well, whatever. Take care man.

Re: The Rockpile last week- pics

LOL :) OK GT, woods asked for advise, he agreed with what I said and had been thinking the same thing and says he will be working on it next season. It sounds like you're the one sticking their nose where it doesn't belong and then pointing a finger at me. If that's your idea of humor I think it's ...
