Re: Ski in the hills of Scotland

I ski the SBound 98 with both Alpina Alaska’s and the last generation two buckle T3’s from 2008. The T3’s are probably a slight step up from the modern T4. If it’s rolly polly tour I will take the Alpina’s, but if there Is more downhill I take the T3’s. As Al says you only lose a little bit of flexi...

Re: mounting super telemark bindings onto world piste skis

Just a small point, if you use the Voile Traverse risers with a Super Telemark binding you will have to file/sand a small amount of plastic from the raised rear portion. The ST is a smidgen longer than the Voile HD Mountaineer. Not a big deal and I found this out when I mounted a Super Telemark cabl...

Re: Tell a story

Both sets of parents looked a bit tense when we ran that up the fla...

I wasn’t aware that Fischer made an XCD binding. I thought they just rebadged the Rotte NNNBC manual and Magnum?

Re: Some of you said Gammes don't turn, but...

I think riel nailed it. Wasn’t there a law suit around Fischer allegedly ripping off Asnes skin attachment system?

Re: The reason for the tele turn?

First piece of advice, buy/read Paul Parker's book on "Free Heel Skiing". It is a bible on technique, in an easy to read, comprehensible style. Second piece of advice, if your heel is free "sink don't spread". Centre your weight between your feet and drop your torso and you will naturally "mostly" e...

Re: Help me choose a first Nordic ski!

My suggestion would be Voile Vector BC’s or Altai Koms for what you describe. The Koms have a waxless base instead of the permanent skin on your Hoks and are more of a ski than a slow shoe.
