Re: Who's filed a tail notch into their skis?

Tail fix, no thanks, Skimo tip fix yes!
Saves weight and complexity, and can rip skins with skis on.

Re: How it's done!

Makes you wonder if the increased range of leg bend tele skiing is better in moguls?

Re: ScottyBob skis

I think the ball of the inside boot is actually behind the centre of the ski.
I got mine in their summer sale, still more than I would pay for a ‘normal’ ski, but I have lusted after a pair for at least 20 years.

Re: What would you add to the ski rack if money didn't matter?

If I did not have Scottybobs with a lovely wood top sheet, it would be a pair from Lonely Mountain Skis here in Scotland.

Re: ScottyBob skis

I have had a pair of Headrush for a few years, love them. Very lively fun ski, looks so cooool. You would think that the tail cut out would correspond to the difference in where you weight the flat outer boot and the raised inner boot, but in fact it is far more. What the tail cut out really does is...

Re: TELEMO SKI & BINDING

Binding location - funny you asked that - I have only just noticed that this is so. I mounted them with boot centre marked ski 'centre' and back 1cm. Curiously I did not check this but they are way forward, rough ski centre I have now assessed (between where it bends to positive curve) is about the ...

Re: TELEMO SKI & BINDING

The Telemo skis have finally tasted real snow - just a quick pootle around / besides the pistes at Glencoe ‘Resort’ Scotland.  They have yet to open, though the pistes prepared and ready to go for the weekend, the sidecountry was a bit thin. On the climb they are amazing - as would be expected with ...

Re: TELEMO SKI & BINDING

Great market for 'Telemo' bindings? don't think it will be part of my retirement plan! The ski is well reinforced under the toe, so hopefully no pull out. My theory is that it would break the carbon leaf before damaging the ski, there should be less stress than a standard cable bottoming out. The ba...

TELEMO SKI & BINDING

At last the autumn project is finished! Inspiration (there is nothing new) and photos. The leaf binding comes in at 377g, the ski started at 734g with reinforcements 777g. Ski, binding and boot is 2180g The idea is that steel is heavy, and a spring designed to hold a duckbill into a cable binding is...

Re: NTN newbie, should I get the Meidjo 2.1 or Outlaw X ?

Harris, Sounds like a totally horrible knee injury - surprised you have not given up! Just for the record: What was you stance when it happened? I have a theory that it more difficult to heart your knees in a lowish tele stance. I ski ScottyBobs - very powerful on the inside ski - I have experienced...
