Re: WTB - Work Stinx

I don't have my old Stinx any more, and I'm lovin' the Wayback 88's I got as a replacement, but if you're still looking... I've found loads of skis looking at Craigslist classifieds in major skiing areas, like Colorado (western slope, fort collins, high rockies, boulder, etc) SLC, and here in Vermon...

Re: Bonna 2400

Hole pattern is probably what was the standard 3 hole, 3 pin pattern for decades, until the Rottefella Super Tele and Voile generation of heavier duty 3 pins. If those Trolls have a flat bale (kinda thin, but flat), they were a good sturdy 3 pin in their day. Can't see in the picture, and I can't re...

Re: Thinner 75mm boot soles?

Not unique to Alaska's, by any means.Leather bootee or plastic, molded soles or Norwegian welted, Vibram or otherwise... there have always been variances in sole thickness, duckbill length, and duckbill grinds. At least in the last 25 or so years that I've been observing it. Starting to sound though...

Re: Ski Backpack

I've got the Nirvana 35; used it for a couple years now. As said, very comfortable, highly functional... I've replaced the original hip belt with a self-cobbed, all webbing one; I've only ever skied it as a day pack, so the standard belt is more than I need, though it would be excellent if you're re...

Re: Template for Black Diamond O1

I don't have any template handy, but the 01's use the "standard 4 hole" tele binding pattern; I'm sure a simple search would provide a template for you.

Re: Need Telemark XCD gear advice

I've always skied Scarpa T2's and T1's since my first foray into plastics sometime back in the 90's. The equivalent Garmont's never fit me well enough, or I would have tried them, as I liked their flex, and buckles. Couple of years ago, I finally went for a softer, lighter boot to ski with my Object...

Re: kick wax for in-track skiing?

For track skiing, a polar base is OK for your kick zone, but a dedicated glide wax is generally preferred for tips and tails.
Wouldn't matter to me personally, but glider's common practice for the more dedicated nordic crowd.

Re: New ski length advice

I skied the World Piste's for a few seasons, then a pair of K2 Shuksans, also a 78 waist. Both 167's; I'm 5'6'', 125 lbs, and recently reached Medicare age. Both skis were great for me as an all-mountain, and side/backcountry ski for me here in Vermont. they felt short the few times I skied back in ...
