Re: Karhu Guide / Madshus Annum + NNN BC ?!

Thank you Lo-fi for your responses, with the accompanying videos. It really makes the point way much better than a thousand words. My take away from that is, for relaxed tree skiing, Excursion/Kom is the ticket but the Alaska/Guide/Annum combo may be better for a rolly/polly trek. Correct me if I'm ...

Re: Help Me Learn How to Turn...

Quote :We tended to keep one simple principle in the forefront, i.e. try to be bold when driving your ski forward to initiate the turn (NOT passively ruddering into your turns with rear ski initiation) Martin, I'm not sure if you are questioning the "step back into the turn" I posted about earlier. ...

Re: Help Me Learn How to Turn...

I did a tele camp with Dickie Hall back in the 80's, in the Spring on Mount Baker and it was a load of fun :) . He taught a lot of good stuff, but the main take away for me was, "step back into the turn". In other words, don't stride forward but put the weight on the back ski as you change direction...

I think you are referring to the Madshus Glittertind boot.

Re: help with mounting bindings on fischer sbound.

The Sbound 112 is an xcD ski, so I assume the ones you bought have a boot centre mark on them. Balance point is for XCd skis, where stride and glide is the main objective. I just mounted my wife's Traverse 78's on balance point, as that's what they will be used for mainly. As to risers, the one adva...

Re: help with mounting bindings on fischer sbound.

Boot centre on line marked on ski. Measure from pin hole to back of boot/2. If no centreline then tape across the ski and down around the edges in a few locations. Carefully trim along ski edge, unpeel tape from the sides and measure width of each trimmed piece. Mark centre of tape. PU glue to seal ...

Re: X2 vs 3 pin HW for XC

Well, I'm waiting with bated breath for my new Rottefella Cables to arrive. Telemark Pyrenees said they would have them by mid-month, so third week in January for me, based upon past performance. I've already mounted the Traverse shims on my new SBound 98's. I was always too scared in the past to mo...

Re: Cobbled down my Garmont Excursions

Like you Andy, I jumped on a pair of TX's when I heard they were being discontinued. Mainly because I could never get to love my TXPros, they felt like boat anchors after the succession of T2 variants I skied from the early 90's. I took my TXPros out for a ski today and, based upon discussions on EY...
