G3 Findr 94 on piste

Hi, I'm interested on a pair of G3 Findr 94, 154 for my daughter. They seem to fit the bill for out of bounds but I don't know how they behave on piste, do they hold the edge and allow to carve on the groomers? She is not an aggressive skier, which is why she's moving away from Volkl Auras (2011 ful...

Re: Powder baskets.

Powder baskets are not good to operate binding heel risers, if it's your case. BD used to sell baskets with a shorter part to operate the binding, they are a bit soft for that but work sometimes. I think they don't sell them anymore, they were not super wide as you need. The workaround is to grab th...

Re: How do I ski the bumps in tele??!!

It's unusual, I think, for anyone on a chair to look down and think, "wow, he's terrible" when watching a tely skier. They're mostly thinking, "what in heaven's name is HE doing. That looks really hard"! I think this is part of the problem. One important reason why many of us telemark ski has to do...

Re: How do I ski the bumps in tele??!!

in my experience, the hardest part of skiing moguls is knowing how to ski moguls...the hardest part is not using Tele gear in moguls. if you don't know how to negotiate bumps properly, it doesn't matter what's strapped to your feet. I'm making this point because there are lots ox explainer vids for...

Re: Skiing after Dark?

Night skiing in a resort and skiing in the dark are different things. Skiing in the dark without illumination is a real pain. Probably better with a good head lamp, not sure, I didn't have one that time that I returned later than expected... :)

Re: How narrow/light before I'll regret it?

I don't know the answer to this, but how close is the 22 Designs Axl hole patter to the HammerHead? If very close, you could just swap out bindings, save money and stay with a ski you know and love. I think I read it's identical, you're just back half a centimeter -- I am seriously considering this...

Re: Old mans binging dream

The Meidjo alpine heel has almost no resistance laterrally, about DIN 1 as I read somewhere, This is required because the second heel remains attached when using the alpine heel, so the DIN of the binding remains active, you don't want to increase it significantly, even less for alpine skiing where ...

Re: Teletips videos - vintage

All his problems are now solvable with the Meidjo With the alpine heel you mean? I agree. I have it and rarely use it, but often feel that I should have, rather than keep trying to tele above my limits. For me there is a range of conditions better suited for alpine, I’m sure it’s the case for more ...
