Re: 2019 ALFA Guard Advance GTX M Boots Review

Ben, check La Cordee they have the 75 mm for $500. I assume that’s Canadian bucks.

Re: Alpina BC 1550

So I went on line and found the Manual for cheaper than the Magnum/Automatic at MEC. :D It Is from Trailhead/Paddle Shack in Ottawa and is already shipping, whereas the Automatic from MEC is back ordered with delivery timing uncertain.
Thanks again guys for the feedback.

Re: Alpina BC 1550

Why are the Automatics terrible Woodserson? The only options at MEC are the Magnum and the Automatic. Perhaps I should cancel my order with MEC and buy the Manual from another retailer.

Thanks Voilenerd and Satsuma for your input, it came in as I was replying to Ben. So one positive, two negative. I can’t wait to try them :?

Re: Alpina BC 1550

Ben, I did try bending the boots in downhill mode without a binding and it felt OK. I wonder if boot size relative to your feet is an issue. For years I’ve been buying boots in a 42 size, for concern about toe bang, but realized when I checked a shoe size chart that I was actually a 41. These boots ...

Alpina BC 1550

I was in my local Sports Junkies secondhand/consignment store today and snagged a brand new pair of these boots for C$70. Feeling pleased with myself I headed home and googled them. I was a bit disturbed to read on a forum called Trailspace several people saying the toe box collapses and causes toe ...

Hey Bri7 I was interested to see you have Magnums on the FindR’s. What boot do you use to drive an 86mm waisted ski with NNN BC? Enquiring minds want to know :o

Re: Rottefella Super Tele WITH STRAP

I'm assuming he did this to increase the binding activity in downhill skiing. Loosen it for the up and along, cinch it for the down. I look forward to your feedback Rod on how it works :) .
