Re: Outlaw-X Snaps

From my computer screen this looks really similar to the Rottefella toe cup problem. The toe cup had 2 issues, stress concentration and ductile-to-brittle transition. FWIW, I remember trying really hard to find a correlation between binding failures and temperature/conditions but couldn't find any....

Re: 2019 ALFA Guard Advance GTX M Boots Review

From what I understand, the Skarvets are very similar to the Guards, but with less ankle support. It might be enough for what you do...? Personally, I would recommend you to first try your new Alaskas... Along with the Guards, they are just the finest boots you can get. I spent years skiing with dif...

Re: Secret ski sale

I'm 6' / 58kg and wouldn't want them shorter... 8-) The camber is similar to the MR48, but the flex and tips are stiffer on the Ousland. The Gamme too is a lot stiffer than the MR48... " The Børge Ousland ski will be marketed as a very versatile ski, as it is. It is suitable as a really good and sup...

Re: Pictures, pictures and pictures!

I just found tons of pictures that I never posted in my old "TO POST" folder from a few years ago... Like this one of my autographed NTN jig... 8-)

Re: Seeking wisdom, or at least opinions...

Hey Stephen, Adjustable poles longer than 155cm are just impossible to find. I have looked everywhere. Well, I did find a very few models that went up to 160cm, but they were either discountinued or impossible to order here in NA... Your best bet is to start making your... Oh, never mind... 8-) Fixe...

Re: Wooden skis from the skies

Woah Woods, that is pretty close...! They might not be from Japan... Perhaps the letters APA meant something else... Composting was not as bad as I thought... I was able to fix pretty much everything with just epoxy... After shaving 1mm of the top, it seems like the cracks that were worrying me tota...

Re: Wooden skis from the skies

Yep, time and nature magically turning traditional camber into NR... Isn't that beautiful? (Camber is still going very strong on the laminated Miner woodies... While all my 70's and 80's skis are dead flat. And that's the beauty of wood skis, camber can be shaped every year with blocks according to ...

Re: Wooden skis from the skies

A few things I forgot to say about the Miner Woodies: - Skimeister P-Bex (who is over 80yo) came here yesterday... According to him, they are definitely NOT from the sixties, but much older than this... (" Why in the world do you want to ski these old planks?!? " he said with a disgusted face...) - ...
