Re: Uneven Sidecut

Typical MC.  Assume shit, take things out of context, and insult!  I’m glad I don’t bother with you any more.  I guess nobody should ever upgrade to equipment that helps to make things easier, even when using solid technique?

But yeah, I could benefit from a lesson here or there, who couldn’t....besides you?

You are perfect....the Perfect Asshole!

Hey, enjoy them if you get them Harvey.  Maybe you don’t “need” them (MC know your quiver better than I, just like he “knows” everyone’s business)....but they would be different and fun.

which I never said (I get lessons several times throughout every ski season). And you top it all off with an insult, even though I never insulted you:

  The shorter outside edge makes it easier to engage the edge on the uphill ski when carving.
If anyone is having trouble with this, the thing you need is "a lesson" not "an asymmetric pair of skis"
This is intriguing... last season my "good" (original) hip was giving me mechanical issues - no pain but it doesn't seem to "roll" over enough leaving my uphill ski unweighted more than i would like. No confidence at speed on one edge. Anxious to see if the offseason yoga and stretching work will make any difference.

you guys gotta lighten up, i'm seeing leaves starting to fall!

Do they make a difference in skiing? I guess it's purely a groomer thing.

Bad Harv doesn't really tune his skis very often...
Can you say "Gimmick".
I think Matt is a dick but sometimes a dick can be right.

Re: Uneven Sidecut

People seem to like other assymetric skis like the Scotty Bob (tele specific) and Elan Ripstick (not tele specific but popular among tele skiers). The concept seems sound and if it it feels good, why not try it?

Agree.

Ch-ch-ch-change is hard for me, I'll probably stick with the regular sidecut.

Regarding why I am going with the same ski... that's the ski I want to ski.

Last season was a nail biter. I learned that the only way to get through a weekend with shoe goo was to make sure the stuff cured all week.

Every Sunday I'd get home and wash off my 75mm boots and set them out to dry.  

Then on Monday am or at lunch I would put a super thin coat of the stuff on the duck bills where they were breaking off.  Then on Weds I'd add another coat. It was just good enough to get me through the following weekend.  I don't want to miss an opportunity for midweek pow because my boots are falling apart, and I want to be able to charge without gear fear.

Re: Uneven Sidecut

Any reason you can’t just switch out the bindings on the skis you have?

Re: Uneven Sidecut

Probably no good reason.

It will be interesting to see if I like NTN.

Kman told me on the first day he was ready to chuck them in the woods after 5 runs, but by the end of the day he was diggin it. We will see.

He can. Outlaw X & Vice/Axl use the same screw pattern. He should do that, then get a ski that fills a different role in the quiver (imo). If he doesn't want to buy two pairs of bindings, he should just get inserts.

Also, Harv, they always have plenty of Demo NTN stuff at the Plattekill Tele fest. You could try before you commit.

Finally, I'm fully lightened up. I made one comment and was called an asshole and a dick for it (just like I made one lighthearted comment in another thread and was told to "shove it up [my] ass" "cupcake" and that I was a "pecker head" who "would piss on [Harv's] wife's grave").

I feel like there's a lot of tension among certain people on here for some reason.
