Re: Alpina Alaska Width Question

Mine are 45s. I notice a bit of heel lift as well. Rather than monkey around, I put them up for sale in the Turnaround. I checked your add, you didn’t mention if you were selling the BC version or the 75 mm version. Both are great boots. I really like my BC versions, I’ve had them for a season and ...

Re: SOLD: Alpina Alaska NNN BC 39

Glad they sold so quickly. My question is, has Mrs. Woods been listening to all the Alfa love? Are Alfa Guards in her future??? I say if you find Alaska love, why stray??? That is of course the fit is correct.

Re: Excursion 88 Sizing and Bindings.

Hello, I do not own or have I skied an E-88, however I have two USGI skis one mounted NNN-BC and one mounted 75 mm. I am attaching a review of the E-88 that might be helpful. https://www.telemarktalk.com/viewtopic.php?f=19&t=2455&p=27205&hilit=Excursion+88+%2F+USGI#p27205 I have not been on my 75 mm...

Re: Binding Mounting Position

3.6 mm = .1417”, 9/64 converts to .1406”. I would call that an insignificant difference. On my FT Balance point and chord center were in the same place and the same for both skis. I mounted pins on balance point and am very satisfied. On my Gamme (210)) there was a difference IIRC of 7 mm between sk...

Re: Will NNNBC handle this?

That is a nice starter package from Akers, however I would check into the possibility of getting manual NNN-BC bindings as opposed to the auto bindings in the package

Re: The Great North American ASNES FEVER!

More importantly, what did you buy that you really don’t want, but I can’t live without? Too many Nansen poles??? 30 mm X-skins? I did buy a pair of Alaska boots in 75 mm. I already have a pair of BC. I am very pleased!!! I believe these boots will just make me put all the more miles on my FT. I cou...

Re: Will NNNBC handle this?

I agree with everything Woods had to say. Although I’m not a big fan of my Fischer S-112, it will do what you are asking for. So if you can find a S-112 or S-98 used add them to the list. The S-112 will shuffle along, it will climb, and it is nice in soft snow going downhill.

Re: FT 62

Rod, When I bought my FT 62, there were no reviews on TT. I wasn’t in love with my S-112 and wanted something much better. When they arrived, I was very concerned. I was not so sure they would kick and glide. They were really light, could they hold an edge? Well I found they hold an edge. I found th...

Re: Ski Length Dilemma

Musk Ox, I am 5’9” tall, somewhere right around 190 lbs. That is approximately 175 cm and 86 kilos. I ski my Gamme at 210 cm and have no issues not being able to compress the wax pocket. I also do not have any problem controlling these skis either. I will admit on my local twisty trails I am not dro...

Re: Talk me Down... or Not!

My new Alaska 75 mm boots have arrived. They fit me wonderfully. The sole is more sturdy than I had thought, based on a video posted by an engineer and former contributor (whom I wish all the best. I also encourage him to post again, when he is ready.) I see this as the primary boot to be used with ...
