Re: Fischer E-109 vs. Asnes Ingstad

looks like the Nansen in shorter lengths - if you can use 190cm…go for it! Jennifer Aniston with bigger hair!

Re: Fischer E-109 vs. Asnes Ingstad

whew, glad to see the Gamme54 is rated as turning easier than E99, I should be OK. I checked again, the stiffness and camber is pretty close. Flotation is going to vary with the length of the skis. I think either Nansen or Ingstad would be a great ski. Both of them have around 20mm sidecut, they sho...

Re: Fischer E-109 vs. Asnes Ingstad

And for me it has nothing to do with performance- not in a meaningful sense- it has to do with reducing manufacturing cost and maximizing profit! Then you spin it as "xtralite" in order to sell it! That was my initial impression as well. But while I was happy with the weight of the older ...

Re: Skifabrikk

2 year old video - look at this comment - they've moved production to Czech: The production of Gamme 54 is now moved to a factory in Czech Republic. The same factory also produce Amundsen/Liv/Cecilie/Nansen and other models from Åsnes . The quality is the same, and the processes is similar. The bigg...

Re: Fischer E-109 vs. Asnes Ingstad

Re: Fischer E-109 vs. Asnes Ingstad

Mike - I think the sale prices started in March last year, best to keep an eye on the Neptune website. those Dynastar have thick metal sheets in them, one is broken, no way I'm ever getting on them again, I won't be age 22 and going 80 mph anytime soon! totally agree on the lightweight-ization of sk...

Re: Fischer E-109 vs. Asnes Ingstad

wow….I want to be in Stavaskarnuten, right now! although it's probably dark for the next few months. I would take E99/super tele on those open mellow pitches….skiing the uphill part would be so easy. we're all different - I'm a little crazy - if I panned that basement pic over a few feet you'd see m...

Out and test new fjellski, easy skareføre.
Very good ski to the rugged terrain, very soft and good.
Was filmed on an incredibly idyllic day at kallingsheia.

Re: Fischer E-109 vs. Asnes Ingstad

>>I thought they were a fairly stiff ski. The only thing close to being as stiff I have is the E89. I didn't like the mountain crown scales - great glide, not so great grip... typical for a negative pattern. this brownish vintage E99 is a stiff ski with soft tips that make turning easier. I actually...
