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...

Re: The new Rottefella Back Country binding system

What do the red string running under the sole and the thing behind the heel do?

Re: Asnes Rabb 68 Ski Review

Maybe the narrower ones really do glide nicely, but at least my 58mm mohair X-skins were a bit of a letdown regarding glide. Yep, skins are skins... In order to achieve a cool glide with short skins, it's important to remember that you need a ski with a good, strong camber. Your Rabbs are flat, alp...

Re: Asnes Rabb 68 Ski Review

Hi Verskis, I was trying to find the length of your Rabb. I think they are 180 but I am not sure. I was discussing with LilCliffy about the Rabb sinking in deep snow because of their round flex and we were wondering the size of your Rabb as well as your height and weight... lots of personal questio...

Re: Alico Ski March Boot

It seems that I am the only one on this forum without a pair of those boots... Before I do buy them I just want to be sure that they are way stiffer than Alaskas. I kind of think that the Alaskas will be too soft for my new Raab that I will use for tour and turn. But I don't want to commit for eith...

Re: New Rossignol BC skis for 2019-2020

Hey Verskis- How much flotation do you need with this ski? Well, when the conditions are warm, the snow tends to be more dense and more supportive, so in that sense I do not need that much floatation. But, when the snow is dense, I tend to have more trouble turning the skis, because the tails seem ...

Re: New Rossignol BC skis for 2019-2020

The problem is, Åsnes doesn't make fishscale skis in widths above the Ingstad, and Voile skis are somewhat rare and pricy in Europe. Åsnes is not cheap, either.

This being my "crappy conditions" ski, I would not like to spend too much, but let's see. Voile Objective BC's would be really nice...
