Hey Johnny-
What are your thoughts on the Asnes scales versus Fischer's Off-track Crown?
Cross-country AND down-hill skiing in the backcountry.
Unashamed to be a "cross-country type" and love skiing down-hill.

They are both very nice. To me it seems like the Asnes scales are smoother, offering a slightly better glide, while the Offtrack offers a tad more grip... But it's hard to tell for me since my Ingstad and Nansen WLs are much narrower than my Offtrack skis...

I originally regretted getting Ingstads with a waxless base but they grew on me and I'm very happy I have them.
