Re: Voile ski sizing for skier over 6’ and 200 pounds

The hyper is the same ski with a lighter core, well worth the extra 100 bucks IMO. They aren't covered by Voiles warranty but can be fixed for a fee if you pull a binding. They had problems with pullouts with certain active bindings. My guess is that if you didn't pull a binding on your objectives a...

Re: Voile ski sizing for skier over 6’ and 200 pounds

Woods I thought about the V6s, but ultras I'm thinking of getting need to be my main K&G ski too. I assume the ultras will tour better than the V6, do they? I have some Voile Insanes and some Charger BCs for deep days or tree skiing but when the chargers wear out I think the V6 BC will replace it, u...

Re: Voile ski sizing for skier over 6’ and 200 pounds

I think you are at the high end of the weight range for the 177 but I'm sure they'd work. I have the 177 hypers and they ski pretty much like the original 170 vectors which seem short for your size. I think I'm going to replace my 170 vectors with the longer version of the Ultravector. so what I'm s...

Re: The new Rottefella XPLORE OFFTRACK Binding system

I want something that can obsolete not just NNN-BC, but also these Riva 2 & Z bindings I've been hoarding off eBay. I seem to encounter enough situations where I need some help from my heel to drive the skis, and cannot drive them with the toes alone, with Fischer BCX675 boots. Well I'm glad I hoar...

Re: Need lightweight Tele ski recommendations

Hey Dude, the T4 Ultra Vector is my ultimate quiver of one set up, if there was such a thing, and it goes well with the SB. I think you will love it for what you want to do. You can also kick wax them for lowangle tours and laps I ski bigger skis than the UV with T4s with good results, but I didn't ...

Re: Waxing Noob Question

My idea of aggressive corking is: X-Skin to Heel and back, twice; Then a sweep X-Ski to Heel , to smooth. About 30 seconds, total, with hard pressure, except for the final smoothing sweep back. I’m no wimp, but I wasn’t a concrete contractor, either! (At least I hope I’m not a wimp!) :lol: Maybe th...

Re: Waxing Noob Question

Also don't over cork it or it might not work for the specified temps. Is that true? Why would that be? I tend to be pretty aggressive with corking, thinking that it needs to be an even, uniform coat, so wanting to work it around to get even coverage. [/quote] "Is this True?" No, it's a crock of shi...

Re: Klint skis, norway?

Plus free shipping worldwide. I also like that as the size gets longer they get wider, like Voiles.

Re: Waxing Noob Question

Here is a tip to add to what others have said. If you get some kick but not enough go with more of the same wax. Either more area or thicker. If you get no resistance at all you usually need to go to a warmer wax. Also don't over cork it or it might not work for the specified temps. One other thing,...

Re: The new Rottefella XPLORE OFFTRACK Binding system

as far as the boots, isn't it possible that they have a soft forward flex and still have lateral stiffness.
