Re: Mystery of the Single Camber Wax Pocket Explained

I still think it's traditional camber but Bob may be right and it does function as a wax pocket, preserving wax and helping glide. :idea: When I make my wax pocket too long it seems to wear off of the tips and tails first, leading me to believe that they are carrying more weight than underfoot.

Re: Mystery of the Single Camber Wax Pocket Explained

Funny thing is that when I'm xc skiing and kick off of one ski all or almost all of my weight is on the gliding ski. The wax pocket is compressed with the wax on the snow yet it still glides. On a properly waxed ski it doesn't stop gliding until it momentarily stops which is the kick. I don't think ...

Re: It exists! Fischer Excursion 88 in a 199cm!!!

What's going on here, I thought we had the Asnes fever. Don't they have a ski that will do everything the 88 will do but only better???

Re: Mystery of the Single Camber Wax Pocket Explained

Voile says the Vector has traditional camber underfoot. This might be the flat spot you are seeing when you bend a ski without pushing on the center. I assume all of the single camber skis that I have been kick waxing over the years have traditional camber and they all held wax. I never really notic...

Re: Paging Phoenix with an Objective question

I just turned 60 Paul and I want a pair of Hyper Vectors (lighter weight ultra vector). I figure at my age they should be the last bc ski I will buy. The extra cost is no big deal when you figure how many seasons you can spread it over.

Re: Paging Phoenix with an Objective question

Paul, being that you are wearing excursions you won't get that classic xc performance anyway. When I'm wearing T4s I can k&g but it is not the same as the classic xc skiing. Even skiing on double camber metal edged skinny skis with leather boots is not the same as xc skiing. It's the same basic ...

Re: Mystery of the Single Camber Wax Pocket Explained

Bob, what makes you think that there is a wax pocket on single camber skis? Do all single camber skis have it or is it only found on "Nordic" skis?
