Re: 2019 ALFA Guard Advance GTX M Boots Review

It feels AWESOME...! You just have to cut your expenses a bit... (Read: buying less boots and skis, but better ones... I'm pretty bad at both... ;) ) I think Ben is secretly an Alfa Ambassador or salesman... I never asked for it, but he kept sending me links of Alfa products I didn't need telling me...

Re: The Ultimate XCD Boot: The new Alpina Watermelon DOUBLE!

Yes... Alfa recommends 2 euro points... 3 seems the minimum to me, at least with a thermo kind of liner...

For the record, my Alaska 42s are a bit tight, and my 43s are a bit loose... The Alaska 47 with thermo liners fit perfectly! That's almost 5 euro points!

I already tried every single possible liner combinations... No luck, they both are too small for me... :(

Your choice...!
You pick the boots you like best, buy them way too big for you and choose the liners you prefer... ;)

Re: The Ultimate XCD Boot: The new Alpina Watermelon DOUBLE!

Crazy? The crazier the better! Actually, at 435$ USD, they are still half the price of other modern double boots... Hey Ben, are these "my" size 45 Alaska BC with Bergans super-gaiters? ;) You sure Jazz...!!! For those interested, this DIY kit is also available for the brand new ALFA PINKI...

Re: Alpina BC 1550

Actually, I like the Autos a lot... Especially when you can grab them on sale at 20$ a pair...

They can be tricky to step in (and can become an big irritant) in deep powder, but they offer the same performance as the Mags... I use them on my resort / hard pack skis...

Re: What is the ultimate compromise ski?

Hey Aqua, Not an easy choice... I would stick with the Fischers, since they offer much more possibilities. Super fast glide, waxless crown, Easy Skins if needed... While you are stuck with slow skins on the OACs... But yeah, it all depends on the intended use... ;) No matter which one you end up ret...
