Re: Paging Phoenix with an Objective question

So you are right in the Voile recommended range for the 164. I'm about 152 and almost always carrying a multi-day pack. Looks like I could go 171 or 178 according to their recommendations, and be in the range. Probably I'd lean to the shorter ski, as that has always been the way I've gone in the past.

Re: Paging Phoenix with an Objective question

Thanks Al - My boots are excursions - somewhat modified. My Rainers say 180, though they measure more like 176. That's nice to hear about the Vectors. With those being somewhat wider that the Objectives, if you find them to be good gliders then the Objectives should be even better. May I ask what yo...

Paging Phoenix with an Objective question

Since I know from various posts that Phoenix has Objective BC's and seemingly pretty wide experience to go with them, I'm directing this question to him, but if anyone else has input I'd love to hear it. Here's the scenario: Me - not a very good skier. But considerable experience with multi-day tour...

Re: Powder touring ski options

Cliffy - yes i think you are right, rainier=rebound. And i thought my rainers are 88/68/78, though my memory could be off, and seems to be if the site you linked to is correct. Since the OP mentioned those numbers i assumed similar skis, but they of corse could be completely different flex even if s...

Re: Powder touring ski options

I have Atomic Rainers - virtually the same ski as the Excursion 88's (some say EXACTLY the same ski but I don't know that for sure). While I like them, and have gone many places on them including across the Sierra, I think that for powder it aint' what you are looking for. Still too skinny and too m...

Re: Boot Shell and Liner Are Different Sizes?

The palau liners may not be original. But it is common for one size shell to be used for two or more boot sizes by way of different thickness liners. And if you look at various parts of the shell - base, cuff, tongue - they may all be different. On my excursions that is the case, as the tongue is a ...
