When the skis were placed base to base they were flat, no gap!

On the shop floor with brakes up, one perfectly flat, the other almost touching.

Just got my new B5s today. They are still the 05/06 graphic, which just means to me that they'll be less likely to attract thieves... I'll mount them today, and get them out on-snow either tomorrow (doubtful, but possible) or next week.

Of course, they do have the older, heavier bindings which keeps them a little lower.
I'll measure my new ones today and let you know. That 16mm seems about right to me.

How are they skiing? The hint for me was when they stopped hooking up like rockets and the under-foot edge grip went away. They got really mushy underfoot.

The new ones are exactly 16mm when base-to-base resting on their tails.

Mounting will need to wait... seems the guy who removed the bindings for shipping left the rails on the old skis, so I have Neox bindings but no rails. Oh, well. Should have replacements on Friday.
