I replaced my 130 cm cut down Northlands with a brand new pair of hart Gremlins, white with red letters, 160 cm was too big for me at the time but I loved them nevertheless. Salomon 202 bindings

My first ever pair of newbies were Fischer Kevlars in a 170 length, which is kind humerous by todays standards seeing as how I'm about 5 inches taller these days, and on 177's (just jumped from 167). But that's the way it was back in the late 80's. Long, long, longer. They were mounted with those old school Tyrolia's that had the dual action release in the back where you had to pull up on the tail instead of pushing down to release them. Took me forever to figure out you could stick your pole tip in the little hole, lean the pole backwards, and it woul lift the lever. Spent that first season leaning back and reaching down by hand. Not fun!. And of course, a pair of rear entry Salamons with the push button stiffness adjusters. Can't remember the model, but who didn't want to look like Glen?
