 I looked at both and they dont seem to different when you put them side to side. The Steadfast is a little slimmer and seem stiffer...

I ski mostly in the east ( Jay, Tremblant,...) and like to ski mostly trees, moguls and steeps (I'm 6'; 210 pounds).

Any opinions?

Mogsie,

 

I believe we received your order and it has been shipped. Thank You.

Thanks for your respond Tyler! I've never been to Burke... This year, I'm planning to take a week off and go a little further south than Jay (I'm from north of  Montreal!). I love Jay for the glades but I want to explore other mountains... Any suggestion for that week? I've heard nice things concerning Sunday River, Cannon Mountain and Mad River Glenn???

 

Philpug, I know I'm gettin old but could you refresh me of what I bought! I'm always glad to have new gears but I don't know whose going to pay for these? ;-)

Just showing off some more Nordica love - my new Enforcers mounted with FFG12 bindings. Looking forward to skiing these babies... and you can barely see the blemishes! I am not even 100% sure where the blemishes are with these ones.

Must be a coincidence. We just shipped some Steadfasts and Guardians to someone in Quebec.

Lucky guy! Maybe our paths will cross?

Mounted with Guardians? They really look nice and I hesitated a lot but decided  to mount them with Marker F12...Never skied with AT bindings and I must say that I am a little bit anxious about skiig performance and durability of these kind of bindings! When you look for comments about them , its one way or the other!But around here, there is just a few that have them so... What is your opinion? What is the name of your site? How much for shipping around here?

Tell me about this mount position.  It looks too far rearward to be on even the factory line.

Honestly does not even look remotely close to being in the center of the sidecut.

It should be on the "recommended" mount point, as I did not request any different mounting positions when I brought it to the shop. I think it is the perspective that I took it from (slightly above the tip of the skis) combined with the wide angle distortion from the camera... in person it looks fine?? confused.gif I certainly hope they did not screw it up. This is a fairly reputable shop that also does racing skis for the local racers. In the center of the bindings, between the toes and heels there is a slight raised line - I assume that is the recommended mounting point from Nordica, as I did not find any other markings of any sort to indicate mounting positions. Willy, Tyler, Rich - can anyone chime in here? You guys have me worried now! 

 

Otherwise I can start a new style called extreme tail-riding? cool.gif

 

Here is another hastily snapped shot taken at more of a straight-on angle, with a different camera.

The skis look sweet! and in your second pic, the mounting looks correct (must be the angle of the first one...)  Either way, the raised bump you see, is the center mounting point.  Tell me your ski length and I can tell you the measurement of what it should be so you can check.

They look right, so don't get worried, but the first photo was misleading.

Nordica: THANK YOU for the SideCountry Burner (84 mm)! Exceeded
my expectations in all areas - and your Customer Service has always been excellent.

Wish you had a narrow high performance all mountain boot with grippy rubber heel/toe lugs.

They are 177cm long. Thanks for the reassurance! Whew, you guys had me freaking out for a bit. biggrin.gif

Heard today on a lift at LL that the Helldo is now sold out already.  Good job Nordica.  It's a "hell" of a ski.

post #43 of 47

Thanks. Everyone here is thrilled and surprised.  We know it's a great ski but we never expected to be out before the end of October..  There are plenty of shops out there with them (but they are going fast)...

post #44 of 47

Welcome Nordica! I have not yet skied a pair, but maybe this season I will be able to demo a pair. I have heard great things about the Nordica line from peeps on lifts and the obvious mag reviews.

Nordie boots have never fit my weird feet, but like your skis a lot, have owned several. Nice blend of lightness and beef. Promise Phil you'll change graphics artists and he'll be yours forever...wink.gif

Tyler, Willy, and Rich, very pleased to see you guys on here.  I do social media strategy for a dow component financial services firm, and I'd love for them to take more of a community-oriented approach like you are. 

 

I've skied on Beasts for many years now.  Have demoed many of your skies over the years, and always been impressed, but I still have pairs I've only taken out a half dozen or so times, so I don't think another pair is in my future anytime soon.  A replacement pair of boots, on the other hand, could be.  Nordicas fit my wide feet well (or at least they used to).

post #47 of 47

I ended up in a Nordica Double Six. Everything about the boot screams Tecnica Agent. And that is a good thing. With the exception of the big toe already having the extra room I would need to add on the agent. Surprisingly stiff for the lower end of the range. Really enjoying the progressive feel.

 

Trying to justify a Helldorado for the simple fact that it's big, black and scary looking.
