Re: Some feedback on this combination...

They are a fine ski for logging roads as long as you are more focused on the XC aspect. The problem I have with them is that they need a lot of input to turn. They do not respond to subtle edging like all of my other skis do. I think it's due to being too soft in the tip and lack of tortional rigidi...

Re: Ski Movies

It is a good video. I was surprised at the amount of times an "open stance" was mentioned. I think I missed that back in the day. I am pretty sure that I'm in that video as part of the group turn. It was at the MRG telefest back in 1986. If the resolution was better I think I could have pi...

Re: New Boots/Different BSL - Does Binding need remounted?

I'd say no noticeable difference, no need to remount.

Re: What ski/binding combo for Scarpa Fabiano?

Telebeaver, those Karhu xcd-gts look to be from 1985 at the latest, they were my first tele ski.

My favorite combo with leather boots for touring for turns was a Riva binding with a single camber ski about 70 -75mm at the waist.

What does the "C" mean GT? Is it a particular version of the boot, and if so how do you know if you've got them? Tell me more.

Re: Voile Hyper Vector BC - Review

I ski the vectors with T-4s, my wife skis hers with excursions. We both recently stepped down from T-2s, which are probably similar to the Voloces and we like the better touring of the lower boot and still had plenty of control for the downhill. I think the excursion will ski more like your old boot...

Re: Merrell Founder Bought My Ski Boots

Hey Anemic, what size is he? I may have a pair of heavy stiff Ultras for him.

Re: homemade skis

Nice looking skis, they look like they were professionally done. I noticed that it looks like you mounted the three pin binding closer to the inside edge. Is this the case and if so why did you do that. I would think it will make it harder to use the outside edges.

Re: 3 pin or tts?

Welcome to the forum trashcat. I can't speak about the tts but if you go 3 pin you could use leather boots or a t4- excursion type boot. The wider skis may need a more rigid boot in firm conditions.
