Re: Barn find tele gear !! Untouched in 30 years

My green Fischer E99s are fantastic crud busting XC skis, I love them. You could sell them to someone on this site, which is a secret E99 fanclub. Disregard the sacrilege proffered by fgd135.

North Americans buy skis like they buy their vehicles: they buy the heavy, overbuilt choice, for the outlying scenario they face 5% of the time.
THIS +1

Reality, not aspiration.

Still no votes for the Traverse 78?
If farming corn for turns, no vote from me. The 98 turns way better than the 78.

Re: Ultimate corn xcD for NNNBC

An older Fischer Boundless. Sbound 98 chassis but sightly softer. Negative crown, the old style that sucks, and also in wax.

Good luck finding a pair but if you do, get them.

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

Ah, right! I was imagining conversations like "Hei Arne, do you want to come and walk up a hill with me wearing GoreTex?" "No, Leif Magne, I am feeling sad. Look at this conversation about our film on a Telemark forum." "Arne, do not lose heart. Skiing IS the best thing in the world." "I know. But ...

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

This stuff works because it's actually founded on some basic truths. While I'm really enjoying myself, I genuinely feel like a nine-year-old superhero experiencing a unique and unrepeatable pleasure, and this has nothing whatsoever to do with facts and everything to do with the vibe conjured in pro...

Re: Alpina Alaska XP XPlore Boot review

Alpina Alaska XP looks like an excellent boot for long distance XC touring with great comfort, but not the best for more hilly tours with steeper and/or icy descents.

Actually, there was a #5 and a #6 in my original review. But I deleted them afterwards, thinking my review was already overloaded and too long for the average reader. But hey, maybe you would like me to undelete them just for the fun of discussion? ;)
Well, obviously. C'mon man

Re: Alpina Pioneer 80 XPlore Ski Review

Wait. Hold up. I just watched @Tom M 's video and he's on Discovery 80's... So there is a Pioneer 80 and a Discovery 80? What's the difference?
