Re: Fischer E-109 vs. Asnes Ingstad

What are you using for boots now Can? I don't jump at all on my skis, but I would have to, to make my stiffly cambered E89 skis turn. Mike, last year I used the Antarctic, also some soft-leather Alico boots. I've got bunionized feet and also need rigid orthodics with big arch supports. The leathers...

Re: Fischer E-109 vs. Asnes Ingstad

Hey I've got many, many miles logged on NNNBC skis, that's all I used for years. I know what they do, they're a lot of fun. But I feel much more in control with the thick rubber 75mm sole clamped into place. I see the films of NNNBC tele skiing and I think the people look weird, having to use exagge...

Re: Fischer E-109 vs. Asnes Ingstad

he wouldn't have to jump up & down so much if he switched to 3-pin! The Scandanavians love their NNNBC apparently. For me upgrading to 3-pin was like a religious experience, it seems so much easier for downhill turns. The Fischer boots don't fit my feet well, I'm sure that's part of it.

Re: Fischer E-109 vs. Asnes Ingstad

Look at the description of Amundsen - sounds like it will be impossible to turn. I had some old Merrell-badged Asnes skis last year that simply refused to turn. In fact I think LJ tried them as well. >Amundsen Back Country is the perfect ski for long hikes with a backpack or sledge/sleighs. Amundsen...

Re: Fischer E-109 vs. Asnes Ingstad

I traveled to New Brunswick a couple times for work, gorgeous place - like Maine emptied of the people. St. John is a beautiful small city. I liked Moncton too. Really nice people up there. coxcer just curious, did you take the Ingstad's out in warm spring snow at all? I got the smallest kicker skin...

Al - where you at? the west somewhere?? low angle will keep you alive when the snow is unstable too.

ah, the 70's, when people used to have sex with each other….those were the days! :lol: it is SO true about what I call the "marketing brainwashing"…it maintains a firm hold on peoples' minds. I don't give a crap! I catch hell for collectively referring to skiing, XC, telemark, and snowboarding as "s...

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...
