Re: Why 14mm drill bit for NNN/NNNBC bindings

I have heard that you should drill the holes deeper than the depth of the screw when mounting a binding.

Re: Thoughts on good gloves? Leather? Flylow?

I use lined leather Kincos and always have a pair of overmit shells handy in a pocket in case they aren't enough. Over the years my gloves have gotten warmer. In my 30s and 40s I rarely needed more than a liner glove but I don't push so hard anymore. This is for touring. For the resort a liner glove...

Re: Will these leather Alpina Alaska NNNBC boots stretch out in the width?

I also have a EEEE width and never had a leather boot that fit comfortably. I had to remove the insole on every boot just to make them work, and that was with them being at least a size too long. The first and only boots I got to fit were plastic with thermomouldable liners. I'd like to add that I d...

Re: Sbounds...leathers

I did the Dbl camber thing for too many years and don't see any benefits for the down. I can understand why someone would want to stick with skinny skis and leather boots but I don't get the dbl camber thing.

Re: Voile Objectivés and 75 mm bindings

Did those old HWs come with the toe piece that is screwed on a riser like the current 3Pin HWS. If so you can change the toe pieces without removing the riser or you could possibly mount those old HWs to a traverse riser.. I have 3pHW risers mounted on skis and I can switch between the HW toe piece,...

Re: Voile Objectivés and 75 mm bindings

Personally, I prefer a straight 75mm three pin on the Objectives. Good with leather or plastic; versatile and capable, simple and light. I can see that, I skied two seasons with 3 pins only on my vectors and they worked fine and they would be even better on the objective being there is less ski to ...

Re: Voile Objectivés and 75 mm bindings

Ideally I would put an old cable binding like a riva, targa or chilli on them. I like the way they tour, when they are adjusted on the loose side I get less resistance from them than I do with the duckbill clamped down in a three pin. On the traverse though you could click them down only one notch a...

Re: Voile Objectivés and 75 mm bindings

The SBs never seemed to work for me with leather boots. In my limited experience with this I always felt like they could pop off so would crank them down too tight to compensate.

Re: Voile Objectivés and 75 mm bindings

I don't know what the XB is but the traverse should be enough binding for either leather boots or the T4, with or without the heel throws. At least that's been my experience with vectors.
