Re: Binding Mounting Position

3.6 mm = .1417”, 9/64 converts to .1406”. I would call that an insignificant difference. On my FT Balance point and chord center were in the same place and the same for both skis. I mounted pins on balance point and am very satisfied. On my Gamme (210)) there was a difference IIRC of 7 mm between sk...

Re: Will NNNBC handle this?

That is a nice starter package from Akers, however I would check into the possibility of getting manual NNN-BC bindings as opposed to the auto bindings in the package

Re: The Great North American ASNES FEVER!

More importantly, what did you buy that you really don’t want, but I can’t live without? Too many Nansen poles??? 30 mm X-skins? I did buy a pair of Alaska boots in 75 mm. I already have a pair of BC. I am very pleased!!! I believe these boots will just make me put all the more miles on my FT. I cou...

Re: Will NNNBC handle this?

I agree with everything Woods had to say. Although I’m not a big fan of my Fischer S-112, it will do what you are asking for. So if you can find a S-112 or S-98 used add them to the list. The S-112 will shuffle along, it will climb, and it is nice in soft snow going downhill.

Re: FT 62

Rod, When I bought my FT 62, there were no reviews on TT. I wasn’t in love with my S-112 and wanted something much better. When they arrived, I was very concerned. I was not so sure they would kick and glide. They were really light, could they hold an edge? Well I found they hold an edge. I found th...

Re: Ski Length Dilemma

Musk Ox, I am 5’9” tall, somewhere right around 190 lbs. That is approximately 175 cm and 86 kilos. I ski my Gamme at 210 cm and have no issues not being able to compress the wax pocket. I also do not have any problem controlling these skis either. I will admit on my local twisty trails I am not dro...

Re: Talk me Down... or Not!

My new Alaska 75 mm boots have arrived. They fit me wonderfully. The sole is more sturdy than I had thought, based on a video posted by an engineer and former contributor (whom I wish all the best. I also encourage him to post again, when he is ready.) I see this as the primary boot to be used with ...

Re: Sbounds...leathers

6” off snow sounds great! Then I started thinking, 6” and still warm ground, lots of leaves, however no where enough leaves and snow to pad out those rocks!
Nice to hear you haven’t grown up enough to know better! I don’t want to get where I wouldn’t want to go for a slide either!

Re: Pinnah's Simple Kick Waxing For Touring

I have learned not to apply grip wax behind the boot heel and back. It doesn’t seem to improve grip, but it sure does drag. Extending grip wax all the way to the tip helps. I extend fully before going to a warmer (softer) wax. I highly recommend Lillcliffy’s waxing guide in this Telewiki section. Mo...

Re: Newbie looking for wide fit NNNBC Boots?

I live in Guelph, ON so that will be the terrain I ski in the most. Skiing mostly flat or rolling hills around southern / northern Ontario and I hope to do 2-3day winter ski/camp trips up north this winter. I just checked the opentopomap of Guelph, Ontario to get an idea of the topography, and I th...
