Re: Ski recommendation

Ah, OK! Right... I'd somehow got it in my head that the Combat NATOs were good on the steeps... The Combat Nato are good on the steeps (for a XC ski)- they are stable and turnable- though they do not plane like the Ingstad BC, nor do they offer the turn-initiation of the Ingstad BC. The Combat Nato...

Re: Ski recommendation

I have the Combat Nato and Nansen as well. Combat Nato is the most distance oriented of my skis. Followed kind of closely by the Nansen and then more remotely by the FT62. Their downhill abilities are in the same order but reverse. In a first glance this is surprising as the Nato is wider than the ...

I've never tried them either, but I rather suspect Le P'tit Cliff will be along in a minute to recommend Combat NATO as well.
Well Master of Musk! I might recommend the Combat Nato...I love this ski- but I won't recommend it until we get more info from Larshaha. :ugeek:

Re: 75mm or Tech for waxless?

I haven’t yet tried to ski just at pins downhill yet, but soon. I’m about to put AT bindings on some waxless ingstads, F1 race boots, no tts. So I don’t have useful feedback yet. So- you mean a tech toe- Telemark boot with tech inserts- and no resistance of any kind (i.e. cable, flexor, etc.)? For ...

Re: Crusty

For the last week or so we've had breakable crust in my area. Its mostly consolidating now, so its becoming a non-issue. I'm guessing that skiing breakable crust is always going to be a fairly miserable experience, but I'm wondering if anyone has a ski that makes it a little less terrible. My thoug...

Re: New Asnes WL Waxless Skis 2018-2019 Ingstad WL & Nansen WL

jyw5 Hey man! Good to hear from you! I think you need a report and perspective from someone that has rigourously downhill-skied both the Nansen/Cecile and the Ingstad. Woodserson Woods might be your man. We have had some reports on this site- as well as UTE Magazine's test- that would suggest to me...

Re: What is an "old school telemark ski"- a thread for the real nerds...

Yes! For me a long, narrow, round-flexing, low-cambered (and not rockered) ski with a traditional tip like the Nansen- is the quintessential example of an "old-school" Telemark ski. (I still don't understand why anyone would call a longitudinally-stiff, cambered, XC-focused ski a "Telemark" ski tho...
