Here's a couple of pics of another set up I hope to ski on this coming season. Hart Cutlasses, 175 cm (darn), with Gertsch 40D plate bindings and Nordica Astral Slaloms.
My first "real" skis were Hart Cutlasses, 195 cm, with a slightly different color scheme -- I think the pair I had was a year or two later than this version. I had Look Nevada Gran Prix/Nevada T bindings on them. My boot at the time was the Nordica Astral Racer, the "all around" version of the Astral at the time. The Cutlasses and Astrals skied great.
So, I am looking forward to making a few turns with these shorter Cutlasses and hope the Astral Slaloms do not break apart while I am flexing them. I will set the spring tension on the Gertsch 40D bindings very low so as to be safe.
