It does not really matter to me as I am done buying skis for a while... what is the point of buying so many skis but not having money to drive your car to the trails!!!
Ha! I wonder just how long "a while" lasts for you! :o
I live for the Telemark arc....The feeeeeeel.....I ski miles to get to a place where there is guaranteed snow to do the deal....TM

Well... a while lasted for about 15-20 years after buying my last pair of used E99... and then I discovered TTalk :roll:

I've always been tempted too. They are a little softer, so going long isn't a big issue, IIRC. The disparity in pattern is the gamble, you might get one ski with little pattern and another ski with an aggressive pattern. C'mon high roller- roll those dice and let us know!

Massive Seattle estate sale. Most XCBC skis I've ever seen in one Craigslist ad. Date is on 1/10/2020 at 3:00pm

https://seattle.craigslist.org/est/spo/ ... 77366.html

Says most of the skis are "short" sizes.
