Gareth, I think you will be very pleased with the Storetind. Now that is based on assumptions I am making based on the FT 62. I would wax a little on the cold side in the pocket (yes, it is single cambered, correct). I know the next time out on the FT 62 I will wax a little cold. A tin of warmer and a cork fit in my pocket. I look forward to another good review.

Just spent a day roaring around frontside on my KOM's in delicious spring corn and riding the lift. Sure, they chattered a bit at speed over pushed-up piles of sweet spring corn and jump around a bit more but interestingly they still give confidence because of their short length, the lever arm is shorter so they don't go pulling legs apart. I also paralleled them today which is something I almost have never done and they were very well behaved doing this too. Damn! Everytime I go for them, I don't come away disappointed. It's a weird thing. I forgot my regular skis and had these in the trunk and the first run I was a little bummed out- especially since I was skiing with my ski bud on his Vectors (smooth base). But he slowed up just a bit and I sped the KOMs up, and we had a great day!

Telemark patrol woman (who I happen to know) said I made it look so good! YEAH, KUDOS!
