    Ok enough intermittent Lurking, ski season is getting closer.

    I have been for two seasons. Free tour on Supergoats, and now 116 Kartel Stiffy. And the Si&I before that on Wren 112 and more Kartel Stiffies.
    Go for it as it is a burly system, and expect it to be such. I use it on my every day ski as an emergency means it get uphill if needed. For example in side country, a friend takes a spill you can get back up to them rather than have to make a full circuit. It has also bailed me out on trips where touring gear has failed or a friend has borrowed my gear. You can definitely go for a tour on it, but there are obviously lighter options out there.
    I am not the free ride crusher that Silas, Lars or their athletes are so not using it in that manner, but it will get it done. I am more the Clydesdale that likes to flatten bumps.
    Plenty of info on the Cast tread, but Iíll reinforce using the jig to get the toe hoes just right, and they like to use Heli-coils which havenít failed me.

    And to the touring ski discussion. I have mentioned it in the past, but let an ON3P touring ski be what it is, a lighter version of a burly ski. I canít see any reason for Iggy and crew to chase the weight winnie market. One, those light weight skis are not durable, and you have to ski them with some care. I have never enjoyed having a delicate ski deflecting off everything on the mountain. The steeple line was tits. I did find the Steeple 112 in 184 a little soft for about 250#s of skier. Thus I added some carbon to some steeple 108s. I have a line of people wanting to buy these off me. They are stable and just the right amount of rebound. Not as light as other touring skis for sure, but plenty light for a guy carrying a couple spare pounds over the six pack.

    Lookin for a used pair of supergoats if anyone is selling. 1.5 or aever (though now that i'm 230lb instead of 280 not sure i can push em)!
    Waited too long to pull the trigger last season and don't even see them on the site anymore.

    Let's just say someone is 90 pounds lighter than you, or (gasp!) they have 2-X chromosomes. D'ya think they'd flex a ski differently?

    I don't think anyone is arguing for a weight weenie/fragile ski - just for Iggy to apply his genius to get to, say Praxis weight (yes, keep the base and burly edges). The Steeples are burlier than many inbounds skis.

    I'm not holding my breath (and Iggy knows best what best makes ON3P sustainable), and there are certainly other good choices out there. Having RES goodness in a lighter 116 Steeple is the stuff of dreams for me, however ;-)

    On a related note, I have to confess, that I'm wavering ... considering swapping out my BGs for C&D'S. I can sort of deal with 10.3 Lbs. in that width. I have so many 11x skis that a C&D seems to fit my quiver better.

    Unfortunately we're closed 11/28-12/2 for the holiday. Back on 12/3. No SG in the shop that I can think of right now.

    Good Luck! I only bought the 1x layup, but mine arenít for sale. I suspect the first round of ďI bought too much skiĒ/buyerís remorse has passed and the rest of us are holding on to them in a ďpry them from my cold dead handsĒ kind of way.
    In constant pursuit of the perfect slarve...

    Oh absolutely. I missed multiple chances not sure if i wanted to give em a shot or not. If something pops up awesome, if not i'll eventually sack up and get my own set made.

    I am. Mainly for the dickwaving though. Donít need an 18 din binding but have busted a couple toes on p14s with moving, plastic parts. And thatís annoying.

    Cast 1.0 on 186 14/15 BGs. Go to set up whenever it snows. Yes, their heavy but I donít own lighter skis and donít want to. Almost sold this timeless ski after a major drought year. Would have been foolish.

    Cast 2.0 on my (soon to be in possession) METAL FUCKING 179 Wrenegade 96ti.

    Picked up a pair of caylor 120's. Im wondering how far i dare stray from the suggested mount? Obviously its fairly rockered and twin. Im generally a directional skier that screws around occasionally trying to ride switch. That being said i think that rockered tail will mostly be used as ez release in pow though. Anyone play around with a pair of these? They look to be fun as

    Iggy already answered but my skiing style fits your description and I have mine mounted at -1 and find it about perfect.

    Perfect usually with a ski like this I’m at -1 to -2. I was thinking splitting the difference at -1.5. thanks for that

    I skied my Woodsmen 108s today. They are really good skis. It's a ski that doesn't need to rage, but still can be skied pretty hard. Not as hard as my Wren 112s, but they don't kick me in the dick at speeds under 40mph like the Wrens do. I like 'em.

    I bought 182s. I'm 5'9" 145# and also ski 186 Wren 112s and 186 BGs. I wanted a shorter, friendlier ski for skiing with the wifey. I also ski them with my Atomic Hawx XTD 130s rather than my Dalbello Scorpions.

    ditto. Will hopefully ride wren96s and wren96tis back to back. If so, then I 'll give some first impressions Very excited to get on them to say the least.

    eSock - what happened with the pic of those sweet cat camo ones above? I can see them in all their glory in the quiver thread, but not in this thread. Too bad, as they look awesome

    Thanks for spreading the Woodsman stoke! Sounds just about perfection wrt what I was looking for!
