Re: Vector replacement- ideas? V6/UltraVector something else?

Whatever ski you decide on get the shortest length recommended for your weight for downhill performance. That's the mistake you made with the Vectors. The 180cm Vector is for 140lbs or above... I'm 160 naked... You went for the longest ski recomended for your weight. I weigh about 175 and I got the...

Re: New Alpina Alaska NNN BC HEATED BOOTS!

They would be the ticket for some ski in ice fishing. Other than that I need ways to keep my feet from overheating, like rolling my pant legs up and my socks down. They do look like pretty beefy boots with what appears to be a higher cuff than T4s. Even if they are very soft I think they will still ...

Re: Did Marker make good ski pants?

Keep them at least until you try them. I'm sure they're at least water repellent and that pretty much is all you need. Weather they are breathable or not you'll still be ventilating by unzipping.

Re: Asnes Tind 76 / 85

So you're not a New Nordic Nerd either. If we meet at the NNN rondevous I'll let you try my skis. :) As far as my fat feet go I've had good luck with Red Wing work boots. Certain models come in EEEE, they call it H width. I've finally found a shoe/boot that fits and I can wear them with the insoles ...

Re: Asnes Tind 76 / 85

Thanks Cannatonic, they look like nice boots. Are they available in the US? If you have EEEE feet were you able to find a nnn bc boot that works for you. My three pin boots are at least a size and a half too big and even at that I can't lace them tight around my foot w\o pain. The only boots that I ...

Re: Asnes Tind 76 / 85

Who's making nnn boots in EEEE? I never found any that were even close to fitting. I need to get an East coast quiver going and I see a lot of good skis out there so whats the widest boot?

Re: Asnes Tind 76 / 85

A waxable ski with an integrated skin, now that's a good idea. I never understood the integrated kicker skins on a ski with fishscales. The few times I used kicker skins was on waxable skis and if I had no wax skis they would have worked too.

I would check them out if they were available.
