Just got a pair of Kastle MX70s at a great price. Anybody familiar with these? - Page 2

post #31 of 34

Like snow, there are skis that are good skis and skis that are good for you.  That said, mounting point might be a factor in the lack of "WOW!".  A cm or two up or back has more impact on shorter skis than it does on longer skis. Give them a couple of days to see how you adjust to them before moving bindings, especially if the toe pieces would need redrilling to move.

I expect with all your experience you have eliminated the right foot problem being alignment by having yours already checked. Glad you are liking the skis.

Somewhere here there's a video on strength training to eliminate asymmetrical turns. I've done the exercises, and it seems to have helped.

I vaguely remember that.  If you find it, post the link.

 

I think the problem is a bunch of under-developed brain-muscle connections.  I need to make 10,000 left turns correctly to fix it. 

Since I now know what the movement thing is that I was under-doing, I may be able to devise something in the gym that might build some brain-memory (myelin sheaths or somesuch) over the summer.  

 

What I was under-doing is a complex thing involving the right leg, hip/pelvis (movement in two planes), left shoulder and left arm.  Now I have the whole thing bundled into one conceptual unit.
