Re: Please help newbie decide on skis??

E99's are wonderful skis...Wax makes for a faster ski and to turn a longer 99 you NEED speed...99's are the best selling ski of all time....Scored my Europa's back in the early 80's????? Kicked the snot out of all cross country skis up to that time....BC....CC....Need to score some Asnes to see how ...
