Re: The NNN/BC Truth Thread

has anyone mentioned the biggest advantage of NNNBC….ease-of-removal at stream and road crossings. I've converted to 3-pin for now, but I see nothing negative w/ NNNBC - it absolutely rocks compared to all the older system bindings, I remember the one with the thin slot running down the binding with...

Re: Fischer 2015-2016 product line-up???

At least we still can swap around with different bindings systems. Remember the Salomon Pilot? Ugh. I put on the Voile 3 pin Cable on them. The EZ skins aren't too break-the-bank that much. At least, I wouldn't say not to Asnes because I'd have to get some Asnes skins. I'm interested to see the dur...

Re: Telemark

the boot? I think it was an older Alpina boot with lots of mileage on it. A duct-tape job would have been enough to get home but I didn't have any, just sort of shuffled 1-2 miles out with my foot resting on the ski.

Re: Telemark

I can see the future - "don't let grandpa catch you in those NNN boots boy!" :lol: the Norwegians use 3-pins too - I think Varg is still making them there, also Alico and Andrew both ship their leather 75mm boots to dealers up there. I did have a problem once with NNNBC, but it wasn't the bar or bin...

Re: Madshus Glittertind Wax vs Asnes Amundsen

I would go with Glittertind, I've handled them in the shop and they seemed nicely built. I like the blue color - looks like some are still around the on-line retailers. Would be a good complement to the Epochs, the Glittertind would be like an XC ski in comparison, but can still handle some downhill...

Re: Fischer 2015-2016 product line-up???

very nice - you need some snow! Which bindings did you choose for these? The EZ-skin is good for customer loyalty, once you buy some of the brand-specific skins, they've captured you!

Re: Madshus Glittertind Wax vs Asnes Amundsen

The Glittertend is similar to the Gamme54, you can stay w/ Asnes and get the same ski. Amundsen is like an XC ski with edges. If you like to mix in tele turns I would go with Glittertend/Gamme 54. Pure trekking and kick and glide, the Amundsen might be better. For an edged ski I like the Glittertend...

Re: Fischer 2015-2016 product line-up???

Woods, do you have the new easy-skin S-bounds? good job! Would love to know how it works. Last year I found the BD kicker skins to work well going uphill. I was able to go straight up Tuckerman Ravine Trail to Hojos all the way without slippage. as I said the metal tab did suck on the flat parts, bu...

Re: Fischer E-109 vs. Asnes Ingstad

interesting discussion, I would still use NNNBC for XC if I had some comfortable boots. But seeing as I found very comfortable 75mm boots, it's easier to just convert the quiver over to 3-pin. The Scandanavians are using nice leathers like Lundhags and Alfa NNNBC boots that we don't see in the US. I...
