Re: Fischer Profoil

@ short kicker lovers Apparently Fischer is adding more models to the Easy Skin line. I already own the E99 easyskin (on the market since autumn 2014) but I just discovered that the E109 Easy Skin version is coming soon, provided (sounds really good) with 50 mm integrated kickers. gfwp Asnes from N...

Re: Cheap resort/hardpack setup.

Oh Ben, thanks to CIMA, I'm totally obsessed with NNNBC now. I need two pairs of bindings for next season to put on the Glits and the Epochs... Hey, I would be more than happy to trade my XCD-GTs for a pair of XCD-Comps... 8-) Hey Johnnyboy, NNN on the Epochs? Ok. I tried the Epoch on that setup an...

Re: Cheap resort/hardpack setup.

Thanks - this will be my first NNN setup in a long while. I think we'll both be competing for some E109s :) I want some for next year but I'm unwilling to pay $350+ Understood! How about you keep to the US market and I to the Canadian? That should keep the peace. 8-) Anyways, I had written, I'm mor...

Re: Fischer Profoil

Isn't the whole point of a full ski skin to provide you with the best climbing traction possible? I doubt that this could be as good on the up as mohair. What do you think? And why not leave space for the metal edges? They might be very useful during a traverse on ice. Well, guess we will have to wa...

I definitely agree. A highly underestimated ski shape for those going XCd offtrack in snow that ain't so deep. Quick and slick. Enjoy!

It's a terrible time to buy skis now - everything is really expensive.
Yeah, well my really good deals have been on the used market.

Re: Cheap resort/hardpack setup.

Now that I think of it, has anyone ever made the equivalent of the Madshus Epoch as a wax ski? That would be so awesome. Who really needs fishscales when you are xcDing in cold weather when you got wax anyhow?

Re: Cheap resort/hardpack setup.

Yes - normal price for Epoch US is $300. I bought mine end of last season for a little over $200 with free shipping. I don't care to pay more than $200 for a pair of skis. I got my Annums and my S bounds for about the same price. I paid $100 for my E99s and about $150? for my Glittertinds. Nice, pe...
