Re: Slightly active bindings: Voile Switchback or X2

Caveat: The angle of the dangle on the steel rebar heelpiece that connects the cartridges may not meet the angle of the rods coming out of the toepiece for people with small feet. Keep this in mind. I am a mondo 30.5 and it works well because there's enough play, a much smaller foot may not have th...

Re: G3 Stinger XCD review coming

Hi Gareth, When you rank these skis are you speaking specifically of climbing performance- or performance overall? This was climbing performance. What boot are you using with the Stinger and the Spike binding? I am using the blue, last generation T3's. I find them a remarkably capable boot for downh...

Re: G3 Stinger XCD review coming

Well I've had these skis out for a couple more Spring tours and I'm really impressed. Today, the snow was similar to a day last year when I was on Rossi BC 110's (temperature around 14C) and the snow was heavy-slurpy skiing down. Today I could ski it, when last year I was flailing on the Rossi's. Cl...

Re: G3 Stinger XCD review coming

Well I've had a few more days out on these skis. If I had to characterize them I would have to say: 1) XC stride and glide is less "directional" than my previous BC110's and Guides, possibly due to the lesser camber and slightly greater sidecut; 2) The downhill performance is streets ahead...

Re: Ymir Backcountry Ski Touring Lodge

Enjoyed your TR Mountain Mitch. Was this the Ymir Yurts or a different operation? We were at the YY in the early noughties In March. I think we took a sno cat for the first bit and skinned the rest, but my memory is a bit hazy. We were guided by the owner and from Sunday on the temperature crept up,...

Re: "upgrade" to pins?

One issue I had with the Spike 3 pin was the fact that I couldn't get my last generation T3 far enough into the toe piece to connect with the toe pins and snap it shut. After a session with the drill and sanding the sides of the duckbill I got it to work. Great binding, mine is going on a new pair o...

G3 Stinger XCD review coming

Well the deal was too good to pass up so I bought a pair of 172's from the G3 website for C$300. I've had my eyes on these skis for a while, but there are absolutely no reviews I can find on the web. I know the original smooth base Stinger was highly rated by testers in its preseason, based upon com...

Re: 22designs Lynx TTS/NTN

It's hard to assess releasibility from the illustration, where the duckbutt clamp looks pretty basic. With the tech toe you need a release function in the duckbutt such as Meidjo has. IME the Meidjo release works extremely well. However, if the Lynx has comparable releasibility to Meidjo I would be ...
