Re: What ski/binding combo for Scarpa Fabiano?

Well- every Excursion 88/S-Bound 88 I have ever squeezed or squashed was single-cambered. The current 88 has more tip rocker than the 98- at least by my estimation in the shop (I have not tested the current 88&98-tested the previous models extensively). Woodserson's experience with the current ...

Re: What ski/binding combo for Scarpa Fabiano?

No buckle, just laces. You will see, leathers are very good to kill a tele ego... 8-) This is exactly what I am hoping for, I loved the challenge of learning on plastic boots, and am looking forward to falling on my face and breaking a sweat trying to master the leathers. :lol: I do want to tour aro...

Re: 80's range waisted rocker ski

K2s all terrain rocker does surprisingly well. The skis won't show a lot of tip splay but they definitely make turning in soft snow quicker and easier, and makes skiing in chop more forgiving.

Re: What is the future of Telemark?

Going back to the original post, I am one of the few who decided to start skiing and said "Telemark is what I'll do!" Perhaps it was because I could find an old pair of powderbirds and cobras for dirt cheap on ebay, or that my dad has an old pair of tm-22s in the basement, or that I liked ...
