Re: Request for input - current gen E99 vs Ingstad waxless

Any other skis come to mind? I really enjoy my Alpina Discovery 80’s. I was about 205 pounds when I got them last year and found flotation very good. I’m down to 190 now and find them a little ‘springier’ than last year during kick n’ glide opportunities. I haven’t been able to bury the tips either...

Re: Another new Rotte binding

It does look like the cables are a bit more forward than the Voile's. Interesting, until you mentioned it I never gave much thought to the pivot point of the cables but it makes a kind of sense that if they were a bit more forward there could possibly be a bit more ‘smoothness’ in movement. I find ...

Asnes FT62 edge tuning

I tested some different setups, and If I were to do something with the FT62, I would probably go for a 1 degree as you suggest, starting from the taper in front to the taper in the back. I would then dull the edges a bit on the taper and to the tip. This is almost word for word one of the things di...

Re: This would be a truly cool vacation...

This would be a truly cool vacation...

...and I don’t mean the temperature although that too would be a factor. I just read this on the Asnes site. https://www.en.asnes.com/asnes-expedition-amundsen/ The Amundsen Training Camp on pages 6-7 of the race form was more of interest to me than the actual race, they cover a lot of stuff in a co...

Re: T2 liners - can these be heated?

1 - Closer to 1.5 to 2 fingers really, but yes, I believe I was always on the verge of too small - then my foot flattened. Getting old sucks. Getting old does kinda suck but fighting it has benefits- I adopted a (mostly) barefoot lifestyle after a bad ankle twist last January. My feet are stronger,...

MEC Waxing Seminar

I sat in on a free waxing seminar at MEC last week. It’s something I need to start doing myself so I thought it would be cool to observe technique and be able to ask a few questions. Since there was just a couple of us the guy (technician and former racer) made time to show us Ptex repairs and some ...

Looking at Combat NATO’s...

https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20191122/afb75e66257d49721799cca20f4baa1c.jpg Rossignol BC 120- no scales, wax base, new this year. Felt lighter than the BC 125 that was next to it.

Re: Looking at Combat NATO’s...

Thanks for the feedback guys. After discussions with some Tele-friends and the Norseman team I went a different direction.
