Re: Faster Backcountry Trail Ski

Ben, I hope you don't mind I call you Ben? I do not have any difficulty turning the USGI ski. I prefer wax to scales. In SE Michigan I find myself using red/silver wax more than I like. I really am thinking about X-skins for those conditions. My uphills are to short for skins, unfortunately they are...

Faster Backcountry Trail Ski

Okay, although I'm in love with the downhill, most of my touring is trail oriented. So coming to this realization, and being that I seem immune to acting my age. I am looking for a go faster Trail outfit. I'm going NNN, I'm thinking Alaska's. Beyond that I don't know. These will not be rock skis, so...

Re: Fischer Sbound 112 ?

Lilcliffy offers great advise, and you will eventually want a "trail ski" for when the snow is consolidated. I was in denial for a long time, but truth be told my trail touring happens a lot more than my downhill touring. For skiing in as little as a few inches of snow you can't beat the F...

Re: What is the ultimate compromise ski?

The S-112 is 78cm at the waist underfoot. The S-98 is 69cm at the waist. I purchased my S-112 paired with 3-pin Hardwire bindings and T-4 boots. My intent was to trail ski and ski at the resort with the same ski. I have since mounted an old alpine ski for the resort with the T-4. I also purchased a ...

Re: What is the ultimate compromise ski?

Hoffmaster??? Wow I never knew! I have skied Nordhouse and need toe ski Saugatuck. Quite a few Michigan skiers here. The Sbound will be fun to turn on. There are quite a few tele skiers at Caberfae, weekend season passes were $109 before 10/31. My son calls me old, but I have a hard time getting him...

Re: FS: Fischer S-Bound 112 Skis & Voile Switchback Bindings

I have a pair of S-112 mounted 3pin HW in 189. They are the same topsheet as the ones in the photo. I would keep the bindings, however I would trade the S-112 for an E-109, E-99 at 205cm. My S-112's have been skied hard, but the still have a lot of life in them. I'm not a buyer/seller kind of guy. I...

Re: 2015 Fischer S-Bound 98 Review S98

I would not go shorter on Sbound skis. They turn nicely, and the disadvantage would be more scale drag on glide.
