Re: The Åsnes Thread (News for 2018-2019!)

Marlow, it all depends on how and where you ski...

Again, they feel pretty short because of the raised tips and tails... And since they are so easy to turn, longer sizes shouldn't be a problem... 8-)

Re: The Åsnes Thread (News for 2018-2019!)

Crister, we all know about the latest WL skis, I have reviewed the whole thing right here last year: http://telemarktalk.com/viewtopic.php?f=19&t=2072 Glad to hear that this was a real Asnes-designed pattern... Although I really enjoy the new WL skis, I have to say that I think this older one was ve...

Re: The Åsnes Thread (News for 2018-2019!)

Johnny, the Asnes fishscale pattern is a VERY rudimentary negative scale pattern that appears to be shaped with blades after extrusion. I had a good look during my travels there. Nothing to rave about. From what I have understood, they mostly make them for rental outfits. I think I finally found it...

I know EXACTLY where I'm going to ski the FT62 this winter!!
Hummm... Unless your answer to this is "EVERYWHERE!", I think you might be wrong Sir... :D

I assume you got the original version, the cooler one with the cooler graphics?

Re: New Rossignol BC skis for 2019-2020

Life is too short to ski second rate skis. ^^^^^^ THIS! The other ski I'm interested in is the Fischer S-Bound 98. Probably the best WL BC ski on the market, after Voile's Objective. And without a doubt the easiest to turn after the Rabb. Quite similar to your Rabb actually, but with better edge ho...

Re: The Åsnes Thread (News for 2018-2019!)

The Nosi was on my wish list last season... But my 2019 ski budget was already busted before spring skiing... 8-) The Nosi is the Karhu Guide of the future. THE perfect sidecut and width for everything BC. Super light, Nordic Rockered and surfy tails. This is what the ridiculously obselete Annum sho...

Re: Summit Cone Pariah BC?

Yeah I saw that last week... Pretty exciting isn't it?

I never had any interest in the Pariah since it is WAY too heavy for my taste... But if the TD guys can come with a much lighter version, with a nice alpine-camber-with-guts and an efficient scale pattern, this could be very, very interesting!

Re: Looking for some advice as a new XCD skier

I know that many disagree - I find I have more downhill stability and control with the NNNBC versions of most of the BC-XC boots (e.g. Alpina Alaska/Fischer BCX6/Rossi BCX6). Ahhhhh...! I couldn't agree more... It's always such a refreshing feeling everytime we hear a bit of pure wisdom... 8-) Reme...
