Re: G3 Tonics?

Fisheater, your reasoning is sound, and I'd love to have a pair of V6's. In fact, the same shop has a pair they display with the Tonics, but, he says he's not selling them; they're his wife's and just for show out front, I guess. It's the price that's the problem; I'm a rich man in many ways, but mo...

Re: 7TM preload and DIN

DIN settings for the 7TM's is the same as alpine... DIN is a standard. For what it's worth, I checked the DIN on my 7TM's several years ago and they tested fine.

Re: Anyone using "lobster mitts/ trigger finger mitts?

I've seen the Swix; they look good for xc use, but I need something more durable... at least a full leather palm. They'd see some hard use - backcountry, resort occasionally, bushwhacking, trail work, etc. Also need maximum warmth.

Anyone using "lobster mitts/ trigger finger mitts?

My index finger is trashed for awhile, and these look like they'd accommodate the issue well. I'd be looking for maximum warmth and durability... any experience with any of these? I've read up on several out there, but looking for first hand (no pun intended) feedback.

Re: G3 Tonics?

Good review; they sound like what I'm looking for, but I dunno about the 8lbs. weight. My old World Piste's were great crodbusters at that weight, but kinda heavy for a skinny little guy like me. Gotta look at 'em again.

Re: Lets talk about your pole..s

I've had the same pair of Black Diamond Traverse for nearly 20 years, and they're still going great... resort, backcountry, bushwhacking and all. Sadly, somebody posted recently that he got a new pair and they suck; bend so easy he would't eve sell them to somebody. If that's the case, I guess I'd l...

G3 Tonics?

Anyone have experience on these? There's a pair I can pick up at a very good price; they'd be for powder days/soft snow only.

Re: It's XCd. Case closed.

I'm not sure I'm clear on the subject here (which is not unusual), but a little perspective... Bill Briggs skied the Grand Teton in the 60's on skinnies & leather slippers. My first time XC-whatever was in the mid 70's, (too) long skinny skis & leather slippers... a few of us rode up the last tram a...
