Re: Sbounds...leathers

The nine inches of snow meant less base removable and easier sliding....Snow was good on top but the e99's dipped down and in....There, the snow was very heavy and tended to slow me down....(('s need speed to turn well and I was a bit or very conservative....Still some rounded turns through Hardwood...

Re: E109 setup?

180 would be fine....yesterday skied the older (non rocker) and a bit narrower than the new ones....178 they were and I weigh a whole lot more than you!!!!!!!!My normal 109's are 190 and would have been better to get the 200 model....109's are good for cruising and really good for a skinny downhill ...

Re: Kick Skins over Kick Wax

Have used green, blue, extra blue, pink, and red this year and it works well....Kicker skin didn't hold up as the plastic piece that holds the skins in that hole in the ski ripped out....Mountain Opps take care of my equipment so not worried....But surprised they came apart from pressure....TM

Re: Sbounds...leathers

Double camber helps a lot!!!!.....Skinny helps a lot!!!!! In other words you can find a kind of perverse pleasure in doing something that SHOULD NOT BE DONE!.....So Fish did go up there and....Hit everything that was there to be hit...Camber made it kinda easy to shift weight when the stones began t...
