My testing grounds for the S Bounds were some small bunny hills on farm fields.

Re: Kicker skins suck, wax and fishscales rule!

I would love to be able to share more pictures with you, but unfortunately we have lost all the snow due to abnormally high temperatures. It was +5°C and raining this morning! In January! Luckily, I was to ski around a bit with S Bounds on central Finland during the Christmas time. Verskis- Great to...

Re: Kicker skins suck, wax and fishscales rule!

Woodserson and Bgregoire, maybe I am just overenthusiastic at the moment, because the fishscales seemed to work so well on recent conditions. But I know that with the skins I would not have been nearly as happy. I know they have their place on real mountains ( at least full length skins) but on my m...

Re: Kicker skins suck, wax and fishscales rule!

Fisheater, I don't know how the S Bounds will handle hardpack, but we have enough warm and soft cinditions that I suppose I will be happy on the S Bounds even if they don't handle hardpack all that well. In the soft snow they were really good, in my opinion.

Re: Kicker skins suck, wax and fishscales rule!

I love my XCD-GT's! Since you now have a quiver to choose from, consider using one of the waxables as a dedicated klister ski for warm conditions; there's some excellent skiing to be had with waxables and klister. Sorry, I don't want to mess with klister. I plan on using the fishscale S Bounds duri...

Kicker skins suck, wax and fishscales rule!

Before last week I had never tried a fishscale ski since being a toddler, but now I am a total believer (when the conditions are not good for grip waxing). Let me start by telling my short XCD ski history: I started a few years ago with an OAC Kar147 skis, which were a great gateway drug into this w...

Re: Alico Ski March Boot

I just noticed that my both pairs of Alico Ski Marches are defective. I have a pair of size 10 boots, where the other boot has a slightly wonky sole. It is twisted along it's longitudal axis. I also have a pair of size 9 boots, where the soles are not of equal length. I believe the actual boot is th...

Re: Another new Rotte binding

Nice! I hope it has a more forward pivot position (compared to Voile) like in the old Rottefella Chili to make it less active. I can't stand cross country skiing with cable on the Voiles, but the Chili is tolerable. Why xc ski with the cable, when you can remove them and use only the pins? Simply pu...

Re: Teleboard Mystique

Pardon my ignorance, but what is teleboard? Snowboard with telemark bindings?

Re: "Telemark" is more than a turn

Good to hear! Yes, fun is the word. Like this clip from Norway. It shows a beer bowl run. The purpose is to keep the beer in the bowl while ski jumping. Look at all the telemark landings. Most people fall, but that is prat of the fun (you have to skip to the 6 minute mark): http://www.norge-rundt.n...
