Re: NNN BC bindings: Auto or Manual?

If you are going to push the 78 hard downhill I personally would mount the magnum- especially if you plan on being many miles from the trailhead.

No difference in skiing performance between them.

Re: Alfa Overtrekkstovel- Overboot

Just checked mine- they are size "42-43"- both my size 42 and size 43 boots will fit in these- with a full gaiter on.
Will check them with my 3pin boots some time.

Re: NNN BC bindings: Auto or Manual?

The Magnum is a base plate that is a handful of mm wider - to help control wider skiis. To add to this- Personally, I am not convinced that the wider base plate of the Magrnum increases leverage on the ski- I cannot see or measure any difference- The wider base plate also does not tighten-up the bo...

Re: which fjellski?

Yes klister- another example of Nordic Magic! BUT- NOT compatible with the skin! Well- the Gammes do turn- fully-pressured they actually carve a beautiful arc- though they have a very wide turn radius. The Gamme is very longitudinally-stiff- much like the Amundsen- which offers superb stablity and l...

Re: which fjellski?

Hello Krakus! My recommendation is for an "E99 class" ski- of which the Glittertind you mention (at least the models I have tested) fits in that class. With the skiing context you describe- it certainly matches the terrain of my week-day backdoor turs. Sounds like I get a lot more snow than you do, ...

Re: Wildly speculative talk about Asnes 21-22 lineup: Otto/FT62

(I am unable to quote a post that has my username mentioned in it- for some reason...) Stephen- Easily done- considering that the widest point of the tip is the same between the 78 and the Sverdrup! (I have no idea why Fischer insists on naming their Nordic BC skis after their tip width- makes it su...

Re: How messed up are my skis after this bungled mounting job

Speaking of bungled mountings jobs: I'd planned to put Magnums on S Bound Outabound 88s, and regular NNN BCs on Gammes. After I mounted the S Bounds, I realized I'd put the wrong ones on. However, funny thing is that although the S bounds' bases are wider, the mounting section is narrower than the ...
