Re: Total newb, looking for advice.

I just want to reinforce ski length in this context is more about weight than height. I am 5’ 9” tall, but I weigh in at 190 +. My Gamme is 210, I have grip and glide. I wouldn’t want it any shorter. If the snow is a little firm underfoot I can turn them as well. In softer snow it is more step turni...

Re: Leashes and ski brakes for 3-pins

Leashes are easy to make and use. There's nothing quite as frightening as watching a runaway ski rocketing down a slope filled with other skiers. Even a light tele ski can do considerable damage to a person. This is very true. I wouldn’t want my ski going downhill without a driver. This is what has...

Re: Can't find topics !

I own an Alaska BC, a Falketind, T4’s, and not yet mentioned an Alico Ski March boot. I have found there is a limit to the power Ski March/ FT 62 combo in crud. For me, that crud limit is not just the boot, but also is a limit to the FT62 as well. For wider and stiffer skis, I need to step up to the...

Re: G3 Tonics?

I understand that position quite well Phoenix. I guess I could drop money on more equipment I really don’t need anything more than I have. When I have time to ski more, will I have snow? Will I be able to afford to travel or relocate to snow? Since I don’t know, I’ll just be happy I’m tired from a g...

Re: G3 Tonics?

Phoenix, I’m just curious. If you are happy with your Objectives, why wouldn’t you go to the V-6 if you wanted to be close to 100 mm underfoot? I’ve never heard a bad review. They are a bit expensive, but I personally would rather stuff dollars away in an envelope knowing I will have a great ski. Af...

Re: 21,500 feet of vert today

Glad you had a good day with your son. I am having another ski weekend with my 17 year old son in two weeks in northern Michigan. Like you my son skis faster than I can on light Telemark gear. I also can ski steeper than he cares for, but there isn’t much scary steep terrain on the bulldozer enhance...

Re: Lets talk about your pole..s

Andy, I did side by side stiffness comparison. You may be correct. I flex them, and the old ones seem stiffer. I need to be honest, I may just be biased. I could design a test that would objective, I just don’t have the time or energy. Thank you for enlightening me, it’s good to know my older set ar...

Re: Lets talk about your pole..s

I am attaching photos of both my BD Traverse poles. The anodized pair with orange in the grip are the pair I am most pleased with. I think I hav e nine seasons on them. The grips, tips, and baskets are identical in my eyes. The plastic locks are cheese compared to the steel band cam locks on the old...
