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?
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!
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?
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.

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