Re: There is too much damn rocker out there! Wonkish discussion.

I agree... too much rocker AND too much sidecut. AND sometimes, too much camber... Ski designers should stop trying to please everyone. And conceive skis with unequivocal fonction.

Re: help me find a 3-pin 75mm boot that won't explode here in the hills

Those Andrew boots look beautiful. I hope to try on a pair some day. So, do they not make a NNN BC boot? I didn’t see any on their website. Nah you're out of luck bro. Consider yourself lucky if you can even find a 75mm pair new in your size. In québec we would say "cé rar com la mard de pap". Nan,...

Re: Bouncing Binding Mounting Points Off You

Not sure about the fast cure epoxy... they tend to be more brittle. For that kind of purpose I think it's alright, but, myself, prefer slow cure, more flexible epoxy, like West System GFlex and stuff like that...

I think the problem with having your heels locked down is that in order to do a proper faceplant while your skis are in contact with the snow you would have to snap your tibia and fibula on both legs probably ruining your day. :(
That's another kind of release... LOL

Re: Unapologetic love note to the Fischer E99

Well Woods, the Glitts are pretty good at k&g too... Not exactly a turning beast, but *probably* best at it than the E99, —but I can't be sure since I never tried those ones on my feet... I just figured by pressing them together to realize that the camber was sort of high and stiff. Again, another d...

Re: Unapologetic love note to the Fischer E99

What about the Madshus Glittertind or the M55 (same ski)? You guys are raving about the E99, but I prefer the softer wax pocket of those skis. The Later Barnett was a great advocate of the Glitt... Just steering the pot!

Re: Will NNNBC handle this?

Did you check the BC 80 carefully? Too strong a camber to be used in BC, in my opinion. Better than the BC 90, though. I'd try to find an Eon instead... NNNBc will handle that kind of ski...
