Tell us you will be riding on this year - Page 6

My Atomic M10s are on the way. I'll probably pick up Neox 412 bindings.

I have 2 pairs of new boots. Neither pair fits. So, I'm hoping to trade in both to get some good-fitting higher performance boots.

There's a bunch of new stuff I'm looking to try out this year.

Broke the Bank

I have
Dynastar Legend Pro @186 (Back Order) Should have them 1st of August
And my 3 year old Atomic SX11
I will use my Solomon Pro Model SC boots for a second season. I am happy with them, they started feeling real good after about 10 days, right out of the box.

This is my new quiver for the fall. Picked up 4 new pairs of skis this summer, I am now broke and practically have to live at work, but it will be worth it this winter. If anyone is looking for any '06 skis check out Al's Ski Barn. Anyone heard anything on the new 2007 Rossi B Squad??

Dream Quiver come true:
169cm Seth Pistol (custom from K2)
189 Vicious
188cm 1080 Gun S Lab
184cm Volkl Mantra
174cm Public Enemy
165cm Salomon Equipe 10 SC
Access to a 186 Line Prophet 130 and a Volkl Sumo (only 50 pairs made) mounted to my size 26.5.

Boots: Salomon SpaceFrame Pro Models 2005

2005 1080s ex-demo. with lots of scratches
post #156 of 171
Same as last season with the addition of Race stock Nordica Dobermann SLR's (165cm). I'm not sure what bindings will come with them though - rumor is that they roll out with a WC piston - so I might be looking at Marker bindings.
Boots are still Dobermann 150's and S12's.
155cm SLX T has been retired...
No new GS skis, freeride skis, or powder skis. (yet)
Later

I am trying to get some Metrons for my son and wife (Metron Balanz's) along with both needing new boots.

Hard snow:185 Volant Ti Super ('00)

Deep snow:188 Volant Chubb ('01), or 188 Volant Ti Power ('00)

Rock skis:173 Volant Powerkarve ('99?) or 183 Salomon XScream 700 ('99?)
Well it's fall, and as I hadn't fed my steel ski jones since May, I just bought a pair of 180cm Volant Chubbs ('96) for tree skiing, since the 188s are just too long for quick turns.

Jim,

doctor, musician, and on TGR, I just found out you run a ski shop and are a legend in boot fitting

where doooooooooo you find the time

;-)
post #168 of 171
In between managing the Bunny Ranch. C'mon down and we'll wax you!


That TGR place is the ultimate gauntlet and outrageousness of forums!

I find this picture interesting!

Except for the ski's on the far right---what are those? the explosivs?

There are significant differences in total lengths, but the toe pieces are in an amazingly similar position.

Seems the longer and wider, the further back the bindings are---relative to midline.

The Vicious are mounted + 3, Maden 0 but I will move to +3, Legend Pro and Explosiv at factory specs.

Dynastar Skicross 10 factory specs but I haven't ridden those in two years.

This will be interesting.

Atomic SG 201
Volkl P40 Platinum 173 w/Marker 1300 pistons
Some fat skis when I get money. Unless I decide to stick with snowboarding for powder days after I demo some fatties... 'nuff said.

And maybe, maybe...
BS 180 Race for snowboarding (doesn't stand for Burton Snowboards).... more exotic than the SGs, and almost as stiff. Possibly more dangerous (I once got launched 50-70 feet, and I was going less than 30mph). Pretty much ignores most moguls and small kids.
