    Whatís a tune? I thought we just rounded all of our edges over? Who needed edges when you ski over head pow every day like 94% of you claim?

Going to be g pa turns tomorrow even with a good stretch and some vitamin I . The vulcans clicked my mind after. Thought you had vulcans to go with tlt's

    I'm getting closer to mounting the Helio 200s on my GPOs. My head's not quite 100% there yet.

    I think it's down to whether I'm cool with the riser height. Looking at so little metal in the toe is still a bit creepy, too (I know ... it's 7075 aerospace grade).

    Still have my vulcans. Just put some tour wraps in them. Volume feels nice. I upsized them , as per Thom and Lee, so they feel like my power wraps , volume wise. Saved me from sewing in the neoprene flex patch on the back of the power wrap(think it mightve been your mod i saw).
    Thread drift though. I missed the sale. Im thinking bc's. Only a couple things on the list and theyre one

    Almost got some Tour Wraps molded today. I dropped in the shop and was like Black Friday Doorbusters. You'd think it was December or something. Instead, I let myself get recruited to work for an hour. I haven't played boot fitter in way too long to remember. I had fun.

    Oh yeah, I got to fondle "my" Tour Wraps. I didn't realize they have laces. Nice touch!

    Vulcans FTMFW! Wish I could fit tour wraps in mine but my my calves are too damn big for wraps, had to settle for the pro tour but holy shit I could go to a dance party in those boots after ripping some great lines for sure!

    I have big calves. I like the wrap for my smaller ankles and lowish instep. The tongue liners have my heel lifting and the velcro that attaches the tongue at the front is major pain. Switched the tongue liner in both my lupo and the vulcan to wraps. Little bit less volune in the tour wrap so upsized. Just barely fit length wise. Fit seems really good although i havent skied them yet. Ill give them a try in the lupo too. They feel like theyll ski well too/fingers crossed

    FWIW I skied a pair of RXís the other day mounted on the line and they crushed it, pretty limited exp though, but thatís where Iíd mount mine if I bought a pair for sure.

    Picked up some 184 free rides, no boot center mark. The website says -9cm...is that measure straight pull and -9 from center or is it tape along the curvature?

    I bet. Some real lookers there. I liked that graphic on your gpo's on nylon when i had that on my piste jibs. On a veneer it takes it up a few levels.

    Piste jibs finally came in. Heavy, Veneer, 3+ Flex. Think Iím mounting -1

    Love how the graphic turned out on the veneer. Poles are pretty dope, sturdy fuckers. Good for fending off Ikonic and Epic Jerryís who get in the way I imagine.

    FWIW, I like my Rx's, both the regular and skinny ones, at -2.5. But I prefer more rearward mounts on nearly every Praxis ski, and I'm still holding on to the stoopid telemark dream.

    These look incredible. I have the same build. Fantastic low tide ripper, and surprisingly effortless in 6-8".
