Re: Uh-oh... pinholes ripped on my Alaskas

Rod, no brakes on the Spikes, plain old 3 pin. In have found the alignment and clip quite positive on these, in fact more so than the Voile's or Rottefella's which I've used for decades. First I've heard of an issue with the Spikes, but then they're probably not skied with leathers all that much. bg...

Re: Uh-oh... pinholes ripped on my Alaskas

The first ski I have set up with the Spikes and Alaskas, but not the first I've skied the set up, I'm on my second season with it. I understand your thinking on it, but I don't think it's a mismatch on the gear... as in the Spikes don't seem different enough from say the Voile 3 pins to have caused ...

Uh-oh... pinholes ripped on my Alaskas

Finally out for a tour on this warm sunny afternoon, smooth heavy snow... all is good touring up to my first little downhill shot. Make a few turns and something doesn't feel right; my right ski is wobbly. Bottom of the hill, I unclip, click back into my BMD Spikes, and all feels solid (I always che...

Re: Total newb, looking for advice.

Your height and weight, I wouldn't even look at a 210 anything. Length will vary considerably wit the ski, but for what you're doing, in general, more like a 195-200 something or other would be much more suitable.Going against the tide here, but I'd probably skip over the Fischer's entirely, favorin...

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.
