    I think that's got to be pretty close to the "right" answer. According to Elan 179's weight 1490g.

    To get back on topic, I am now anti-foam rolling. It seems to causes more problem than it solves for me. I only use it on my upper back. Dry needling, on the other hand, is magical (and painful).

    I coached one heavyweight who probably took a few years of my life with the pounding he dished out. His hands were like anvils. He won a couple matches at States as a Junior. Then he showed up at...

    I can relate to this, but my story is a bit different. My last year coaching wrestling was 5 years ago at age 39. I was pretty good at it. I coached (and taught) at a small high school where all the...

    This is pretty damn accurate. Length is a bit short as you say. My left foot usually measures a bit wider. Right is spot on.

    For reference I ski 26.5 Hawx XTD Ultras and 26.5 F1's.

    It often has more snow than many places.

    It isn't crowded.
