Re: Asolo Telebreeze: did anybody ski a pair? review?

When I wanted to start Telemarking, I was buying all my equipment from a mail order discount house out of Colorado, Ski Gear Direct. I called them up, they had three Telemark boots, the Telebreeze, the Merrill Supercomp, and a three buckle Garmont. I wanted a Scarpa Terminator, there were no ones or...

Re: Yet Another Madshus Eon Review

[quote="lilcliffy"]Wicked. I have now grip-waxed the entire base of my Eon Wax- amazing grip and glide. My 15-year-old son (who is just about to get taller than me! :cry) I think my fifteen year old son just passed me. I try telling myself it's just his hairstyle. T-$, Madshus should just ...

Re: ski with the other ones

That's no lie Al. Mrs. Anemic skis gracefully, and with speed. I only have caught a couple glimpses from the chair, but no doubt Mrs. A can ski

Re: Boot-Binding Compatibility

Hello, re-read the entire thread. That Alpina 75 boot seems to be in the too light class for a Hardwire binding. I would not consider a Hardwire with that boot. Mount that ski up and enjoy winter, it ends too quickly!

Re: Boot-Binding Compatibility

I find the hardwire pairs nicely with my T-4. I think it has a nice amount of pressure to flex my T-4's. I now have two pair of skis mounted with 3-pin cable bindings. Sooner or later I will ski the T-4's with one of those 3-pin cable skis, but for now I have not skied the T-4 with a 3-pin cable, I ...

Re: The UP Conditions Report Thread

Breaking out the Vectors yet Conny? If you are, is it filled in enough for the downhills? I still have a dent in my knee cap from a time I caught a tip going downhill in 2 feet of UP fresh. I hit a rock with my knee, it probably only had 2" of cover and we were playing last one to the bottom. I...

Re: Do I need a rebar?

I never have had an NNN boot, but I believe there could very well be a metal plate that would have been molded in. If you drilled in about 1/16" you would find either a plate, or find me wrong. If there is a plate it would be the bottom of a steel rectangle, the bar being the top. You should be...

Re: Chord Center mounting- does it make any sense?

Great posts, it is funny that I can agree that I believe a cm or two should be something that most skiers will adapt to. On the other side of the coin, I believe that new rocker designed skis are changing the rules. When I first flexed my new FT 62 skis, I was very concerned. I thought they would re...

Randoskier, thank you for sharing the beautiful photos. I have not even read much of ski touring in Norway. It appears that you had a wonderful adventure.
