Re: Downhill performance : Ingstad vs Rossi BC 110 vs Raab 68

Nitram, you cannot compare the FT 62 to the Ingstad, not in XC or downhill. I have not skied downhill where the FT 62 was not at least the equal of the S Bound 112 (which many believe to have the same core as the BC 110, but different bases and topsheet) The S-112 is nice in powder, no doubt, but th...

Re: Sbounds...leathers

Teleman, From what I read the Ingstad compares to the E-109, now it seems as though the guys prefer the Ingstad, they are similar, why buy two similar skis unless the E-109 just isn't quite what you want? I would suggest you take a look at the Falketind 62. This ski is 62 mm at the waist, and weighs...

Re: Ski Review: 2018-2019 Fischer Excursion 88

Nice review Gareth, I have thought for a while that the 88 probably hit the sweet spot on this series of skis from Fischer. However I will not be buying one anytime soon. Between a USGI, Gamme, and Falketind I should be able to get by. I believe, that my 200 cm USGI has got to be faster than a scale...

Re: Asnes Falketind 62 versus Rabb 68

Johnny, great job on the comparison between the two skis. The Rabb 68 sounds like a heck of a ski. I was wondering if the Rabb was stiffer than the Falketind? If I was to guess, I wouldn't think the difference would be significant as the Tindan isn't really significantly stiffer. While I encourage a...

Re: Asnes Tindan 86 Ski Review

Johnny, I told Nitram the long story, but no I have not been on the Tindan. I mounted them at balance point. Quite a way back from Asnes' recommendation. I look forward to skiing these and my Gamme. My backcountry skiing was only on my USGI this season. I put 3x the gouges in them then I did the las...

Re: Not a telemark movie, but an inspiring skiing movie none-the-less

Things change as you get older. When I was younger I wanted to ski Chanonix. Now I look at the glades of Japan and think how wonderful that would be. Right now what I really hope for, after a couple of not so hot winters, is two feet at home, with single digit (F) temps for two weeks to keep it pres...

Re: Asnes Tindan 86 Ski Review

I have been resort skiing with my son on my Falketind 62 exclusively. Sometimes I am a little stubborn, and skiing groomed blues and blacks should be pretty easy stuff. However I now realize while the Falketind 62 is a really fun ski to ski on groomed snow. If that snow is has a bottom that is boile...

Re: New rant... Backcountry/wide skis and telemarkers

I gave away my last pair of K2's to some guy from Craiglist about 5 years ago - the last ones to go were some 207cm K2 Extremes from the early 90's - they were my faves for a few years of Maine/Vermont skiing. I think they had slalom sidecut with GS flex - or was it the other way around? I had K2 T...

Re: New rant... Backcountry/wide skis and telemarkers

^^^^^^^
What he said!!! Well, except I preferred the detuned models, K2 Extremes, and Atomic PCM skis. I liked skis stiff, but not racing stiff. I also preferred my terrain steeper, snow softer, and wanted to turn where I wanted to turn.
